Most feed manufacturers provide a variety of feed and supplements for livestock. High-quality feed, proper nutrition, and a balanced diet can result in weight gain, the perfect balance between fat and meat, and higher profits.

That is no longer the case, due to the increase in ground water contamination, genetically modified seeds, and changes in pesticides used for nearby crops.
