If you buy grain fed meat, you are supporting factory farming.

"The actual farms where grain-fed cows are even more destructive. Grain-fed cows don’t just live on pastures while eating grains. They live in huge, filthy barns called CAFOs (Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations). With all the cows cooped up in such a small space, CAFOs end up with a lot of manure to deal with, often manure full of antibiotic-resistant “superbugs.” And that manure is constantly spilling out into the water supply. This contaminates water and makes it unsafe to drink."
