The high dependency on petroleum and oil, especially with those farms that have to use a lot of machinery to farm crops and even in feedlot operations.
According to the related link below (Wikipedia), the first feedlot was created in 1876 south of Chicago by Gustavus Swift. For more information on the feedlot, please see the related link below.
There are no true or near rhymes of feedlot. According to rhymezone "seed lac" and "sheep rot" are the nearest English words to a rhyme.
Raise beef cattle for the purpose of turning those animals into meat. "Beef farm" is a very generic term, as it can refer to beef cow-calf operations or feedlot operations (and everything else in between.)
There are no more health risks living near a feedlot than living anywhere else in the farming community, except that you might not get used to the smell of the facility when the wind is blowing the smells your way. However, water contamination may be a problem if the feedlot doesn't have good manure management practices, but the water problem in itself is rare.
An implant is a hormonal compound--natural or synthetic--that is used for the purpose of improving growth (in the form of average daily gain [ADG]) and feed efficiency in beef cattle. The feedlot or commercial finishing operations is the sector which tends to use the most implants over all other sectors, including cow-calf and backgrounding.
As far as sustainability, conservation and herd health is concerned, it is better to let your livestock graze or manage your livestock to graze on pasture than being in a feedlot. However, as far as economics and efficiency is concerned, the feedlot over-rules grass-finishing or grazing.
