Have you ever watched the show "Dirty Jobs" with Mike Rowe, which airs on the Discovery Channel? If you haven't checked it out, you should. We watch the show regularly and he often has some interesting, albeit disgusting, shows.
It is often eye-opening to see some of the things that take place in and on farms and to animals around the country. Quite a few of the shows I've seen have dealt with some sort of animal production or use. His show gives you an inside look at such things as artificial insemination, turkey production, making leather, and etc. It's one thing to read about them, but it's another to see it take place on his show.
Here's a few clips from some of these shows I've seen. Set your TV to record the show, or catch it when it's on. You will be surprised at some of the animal-related shows that air on that show. As far as I'm concerned, the more we know about what goes on, the better we are able to understand it and be able to communicate our position.
Check out this interesting follow up video, where Mike discusses what happened that day.
