This company operates two feedlots. A feedlot is an intensive confinement animal feeding operation (CAFO) for cattle, much like a factory for 'battery chickens'. Each animal has 5 to 10 square metres of space in a pen of 50 to 200 cattle. The cattle are forced to stand and sleep in their own dung and urine, and endure extremes of weather (especially heat). Close confinement means a much higher risk of disease so antibiotic drugs are routinely used. Grain feed commonly causes their digestive systems to be acidic. Cattle spend up to a year in feedlots, where they are fattened up before slaughter.

With the help of an ecoBiz rebate, Australian Country Choice installed an additional entry to their factory, dramatically reduced their use of LPG powered forklifts. ACC also switched to more efficient refrigeration condensers and began treating recycled water. . ecoBiz is the Department of Environment and Resource Management's eco-efficiency partnership program with Queensland Business.
