The RSPCA says stocking densities on Australian feedlots need to be addressed.
CEO Heather Neil recently visited a southern Queensland feedlot and says that, while it was mostly a positive experience, there are some issues.
At a beef industry conference this week, Ms Neil said she's was encouraged by industry research into stocking densities.
"If you've got a lot of animals in a small space, it restricts you from doing what you would like to do," she said.
"It restricts you from moving around and in hot environments obviously has significant impacts on heat.
"But what we don't know is, over a longer period of time, how important is it for an animal to have more space than that?"
