In this special investigative report, Aaron and Melissa drive straight into modern dust bowl conditions to visit a CAFO (Concentrated Animal Feeding Operation) in North Texas to see first hand how the food supply is raised.
In sometimes harrowing footage, they witness the compact conditions in which thousands upon thousands of cattle are raised to provide cheap meat to the population. Surrounded by literal mountains of dung buried under tires and miles of less-than-serene landscape, these cattle, like millions of others in America, are fattened on taxpayer subsidized GMO corn and grown bigger with the help of antibiotics and hormones.
