Feedlot Report [NYT]
Most of the environmental problems stem from the waste from the feedlots. The country's cattle, hog and chicken feedlots produce 291 billion pounds of manure a day. That waste is held in open pits, known as manure lagoons. Leaks and spills from these lagoons have caused most of the water pollution and fish kills documented in the report.
The Sierra Club report is here, if you can bear to read the whole thing.
