Cows Are What They Eat

Conventional beef, most of the beef that is sold at the grocery store, comes from cattle that spend most of their life in a feedlot. At the feedlot the cattle are put on a soy and corn diet that makes them become unnaturally obese. Cows' bodies do not properly digest this type of diet and can cause infections and ulcers in their digestive tract. These cattle may also be fed candy (to boost their sugar intake), chicken coop waste and slaughterhouse remains of pigs and chickens. They may also be given plastic pellets, which are used as fiber that they would normally receive from grass. Not to mention, these cows are also given antibiotics and hormones to help fatten them up even quicker. Are you okay with this in your beef?
