In 2015, Australia was the biggest meat-eating nation in the world, eating three times the global average. In the SBS documentary series, For The Love of Meat, committed carnivore Matthew Evans wants to find out how we produce it and uncover the impacts of eating so much of it. Matthew discovers it is not always easy to find out the answers, but is determined to help show how we consumers can choose better for us, our animals and the planet.
More than half of all Australian land is used for grazing livestock, mostly cattle. This schools resource relates to episode three, Cows, in which Matthew Evans explores the true cost of producing beef in a country with the size and climate of Australia.
