Larry's, The Real Deal

Logo by Blue Farm Graphic Design 

This is by far the most impressive portrayal of slaughter that I have ever seen. It pulls no punches but the way Larry and his crew carry out their work is so quick and efficient that the cringe factor (which is a normal component of all slaughter videos)has been severely diminished.

I should also point out that these fellows appear to have exactly the kind of attitude that we want to see in those whose job it is to convert living creatures into food. There's no swagger in their body language, no cynicism in the language with which they tell the story of what they do and how they do it. I know I could not do what they do without becoming undone and careless, but I don't get the sense that we need to worry that they are going to get sloppy.

Thanks for posting this.

This video is actually easy enough to watch that I'm going to show my kids. They've been curious about how meat comes from animal to the plate. And this, I know, won't scare the hell out of them, but will spark some conversation.
