Woeful, sensationalist stuff. They use the terms "feedlot" and "factory feedlot" interchangeably which suggests they are the same. I would be interested to know the proportion of the annual kill that is owned and controlled by the factory but this isn't the way to find out. Lots of feedlots are not factory controlled. Also, am I right in saying that factory controlled cattle can be finished and slaughtered in non-feedlot status holdings?
