    Steven Smith - your concerns appear to be related to CAFOs, not GMOs. Your comments do not match your claim that there is any difference in cattle fed gmo grains or non-gmo grains. The pig feeding study that is referred to in the links you provide has been addressed in many other questions on this website, and the consensus is that the trial methodology (and thus the findings) is flawed.

    I believe that there is a difference. Cattle are fed GMO corn to fatten them up before slaughter. They are are not naturally meant to eat corn so they are pumped full of antibiotics to compensate. 80% of antibiotic use (or abuse) is for meat production.
    Pigs get gut inflammation from GMO feed. This study shows that pigs were harmed by the consumption of feed containing genetically modified (GM) crops. "Pigs with these health problems end up in our food supply. We eat them. Pigs have a similar digestive system to people, so we need to investigate if people are also getting digestive problems from eating GM crops."

    Here is an article explaining the situation in greater detail.
