The series, in full
Chapter 1. Take care of my cows. The love and passion of farmers for their animals until the last day, the hardest of all. The invisible link between livestock and tourism. An unexpected Journey. And the tribute to one of the most popular and beloved farmers, José Pinto, a true fan of beef.
Chapter 2. Leaving the cavern. “The human being, if he had never consumed meat, he would not be a human being.” This is how resounding Professor Carlos Díez is in Prehistory at the beginning of the chapter. A journey to the beginnings of the human being, the importance of meat in our evolution, the invention of fire and cooking, thanks to the surprising story of another of our protagonists: Maite.
Chapter 3. The end of the world. There are few news that, taken to the extreme, speak of the end of our days because of cattle ranching. Through the testimony of different researchers specialized in climate change and the testimony of farmers and veterinarians, the chapter tells a practically unknown point of view. “Because the end of the world, depending on where you look at it, can also be the beginning.”
Chapter 4. Animals. “They say there are no ex-rugby players, that you are always a rugby player.” And through one of them, who shares his passion for this sport with his passion for cows and his work as a veterinarian, we will discover that they are not so different worlds. We will share the final of the league with the boys and girls of the Rugby Science Club and we will learn why meat is so important to complete a balanced diet.
Chapter 5. Let your palate speak. The Cofradía del Chuletón, a group of friends more than known by all, is the protagonist of the fifth chapter of the documentary series Fans del Vacuno. But the ribeye is only the end of the road: before that there is a butcher’s work as a craftsman and an effort by the meat industries to adapt to a demanding consumer. In addition, we will discover that there is life beyond the steak from the hand of Michelin star chefs and a group of expert lunch cyclists.
