How Raising Cattle has Changed

In 1850, before the introduction of anything that resembled factory farming or feed lots, how long did it take cattle to reach full size only eating grass? Four to five years.
Today, with a factory farming, grains, hormones and all the other medication how long does it take cattle to reach full size? Only 14 months with the help of grains, drugs and lack of exercise. 

If the cattle you eat is sick, how do you think that affects you?

Besides eating healthier meat, eating local it is often easier and more affordable to buy meat in bulk from a local farm that does not give any antibiotics to their animals.
