The Vegetarian Turned Rancher -- Keri Brandt (Associate Professor)

A talk with vegetarian-turned rancher Keri Brandt, discussing her journey and understandings of livestock sustainability, animal welfare, and meat-consumption. The conversation goes beyond the usual surface level discussions of the topic, and explores a unique perspective of the human relationship with livestock animals.  

Keri Brandt is an associate professor of sociology and gender studies at Fort Lewis University, she has spent much of her educational career exploring the relationship between humans and animals, and was a strict vegetarian prior to marrying into a traditional Colorado ranching family.
