Many of the folks we know would not consume feedlot beef or confinement raised chicken or pork. This Michael Pollan article discusses a case study of a feed lot beef steer that he purchased and followed through the production system. Some alarming info about consumption of antibiotics, growth hormones and ecoli. His books and articles are very detailed and thorough and they can take some time to study. Grass fed beef, chicken, and pork have none of the issues that feedlot animals do. This is an excellent reference article that I wanted to share.
