Gone through the video.  It is an eye opener for most of us & try to go for vegetarian dishes.
But according to my knowledge some methods shown in dairy & pig industry in this video is not a practise used by most of the farmers. Objective of any business is profit & killing male animals in this way is loosing their profit margin. So part of this video about dairy & pig industry  is over exaggerate.  Some of the other practices shown here are correct & even using in dairy & pig industry in Sri Lanka as well.
I have seen some of other methods (not all) shown in this video is practising poultry farmers abroad & hatcheries in Sri Lanka as well.

If one has to kill ( not justifying) , kill quickly and less painlessly as possible.

I really hate the kulu-gedi method.

Also seen a dish where a fish is alive while its body is cooked and eaten.
What ever cultural practices people like to go head with, I think humans if they are human need to use brains to figure out what is right and wrong.

On a related and different subject :
ISIS execution method is unspeakable. If they want to kill, atleast kill with only one sword swish to behead to cause less pain.

Agree with you Slstock. As far as I know this "kulu gedi" method is still using most of the piggery farms/back yard farms in Sri Lanka.

The most admirable story with this attitude is LIFE OF PIE

Its about an Indian boy who is a vegetarian by choice and a practitioner of all religions
His father is a rational person who allow his children to select their own way but protect their children from teaching the realities..A tiger will kill you and eat you and thats his way...

The family happen to travel in a ship. Father and one son can eat anything but not the mother and the main character of the film.

Mother ask vegetarian food but served the same food including meat and rice.. Father insist that they need vegetarian food...Chef says yes.. these bulls are vegetarians and then its meat is also vegetarian...Next a quarrel.. Next a smiling Chinese intervene and say I am a Buddhist I don't eat meat but only curry...

This movie is looking at the issue in a very practical way..

I think it was an award winning book/film as well...

In Buddhism, it doesn't clearly say not to eat meat because it is not directly related to enlightenment. This is a highly controversial topic which is part of the 5 questions Devadhatta asks Buddha with an objective of creating a bad image about Buddha.

But killing/harming of any animal is not accepted in Buddhism.

To me taking moderate amount of alcohol to extent that it's not up to the level that harm others or own health is less sin than eating meat of an animal irespective of it is killed for you or not.
