EarthSave presents, Live & Uncensored, Plain Truth the Cattle Rancher who Won't Eat Meat

Howard Lyman's coming to town on Saturday, August 21. Howard is the 4th-generation farmer-rancher-feedlot operator turned vegan. He was the impetus for the Texas Cattleman's Association lawsuit against he & Oprah Winfrey for openly discussing mad-cow disease as a direct result of the common practice of feeding cows to other cows, endorsed by the USDA.

Come hear his heartfelt, honest and sometimes humorous account of the industry's practices and his own life's experiences which transformed him into one of the most powerful spokespeople for environmental justice in the nation today. I encourage you learn more about him by visiting

Farm Sanctuary Country Hoe-Down

Farm Sanctuary is a beautiful haven for rescued farm animals from a variety of abusive situations, such as feedlots, slaughterhouses and factory farms. It was co-founded by Gene and Lori Bauston in approximately 1984, who were pioneers in the field of animal rescue and rehabilitation, then providing homes for these victims of agribusiness, where they freely roam the pastures to their hearts' content. The farm is nestled in the mountains of upstate New York in Watkins Glen, approximately 6 hours north of NY City.

The Country Hoe-Down will be held on the weekend of August 7-8 (Saturday & Sunday). From the Farm Sanctuary News: "It's a hoot! A weekend of educational workshops, shelter tours & hayrides, noted animal rights speakers, barn dancing, great food & good times at our picturesque farm in upstate New York."
