To me it is only logical. How can putting hundreds of cattle together in a feed lot be good for them? If it isn't good for them then it can't be good for us.

How can you make a difference? Eat less meat, especially eat less non-organic meat. If everyone ate 20% less meat, 20% fewer animals would spend their lives in feedlots, you will lower your exposure to the problems caused by using antibiotics in conventional meat production, and you'll be healthier (assuming you replace the meat with healthy options). The world will be better off if we reduce our meat production, too.
