Beef cattle waiting to be feed stand in pens at a feedyard in South West Kansas. In the background is a huge grain storage elevator containing supplies of cattle feed. A feedyard is part of the factory farming process where animals are fattened up prior to slaughter. They are mostly fed on corn or corn dervived products gaining between 2.5 and 4.5 pounds per day. 25% of all American beef is produced in Kansas.
