Most of the cattle in this country are raised on huge factory farms called CAFO (concentrated animal feedlots operations). The cattle are crowded together like sardines. They are fed genetically-modified corn, synthetic growth hormones, and antibiotics. A side note here-80% of the antibiotics sold in this country go to livestock.
Why? Because the conditions they’re raised in are so dirty that they have to be on a constant doses of antibiotics so they don’t get sick. Now some cattle do succumb to disease - parts of these dead cows are then fed to the live ones.
Think about it this way-there’s nothing magic that happens between the cow’s mouth and your mouth. So when it comes to beef, pork, and poultry - buy 100% pasture-raised, it’s not only healthier, it tastes better.
