I liked the first part of the movie, when they talked about growing organic grains and vegetables, but then the story tried to explain how to correctly raise livestock.

If we look at the issue of world hunger today, with all the industrialized animal farming methods, we realize that still we cannot feed everyone on the planet, let alone we raise animals in a slower pace methods. Of course it is not going to be sustainable in terms of being able to feed people.
