We composed ‘Vegan Reality Check’ spontaneously after viewing the documentary ‘Cowspiracy’ in our mini-movie theatre. In fact, showing ‘Cowspiracy’ to new farm apprentices is part of the curriculum. Kip Anderson and Keegan Kuhn, the producers and directors of ‘Cowspiracy,’ did a great job exposing the hypocrisy of the well healed, well funded green organizations who deliberately go mum on the impact of animal agriculture on the environment. But (there’s always a but), the film’s demonization of cows and milk products was a real shocker, an indicator that neither Anderson nor Kuhn understand or respect the historical and traditional import of cows and bulls in human society. So, we slapped together a quick script and the rest is history. Sorry, PETA, but there’s another side to the story.
