Summary
As traditional cattle-raising by independent producers is displaced by the intense livestock production of agribusiness giants, consumers are paying the price. This in-depth program examines the practices of North American meat multinationals, which raise livestock on huge feedlots. Genetic engineering, growth hormones, antibiotics, the monopolization of world markets, and other issues are addressed, along with concerns that these beefed-up cattle pose risks both to consumer health and to the world's economy-and do not taste very good, either
