A lot of the problem mentioned above are modern ones. ie(Steroids,Hormones,industry).
Some general well known principal fiqh of Halal/Haram meat is that the source must be known as to know if it was slaughtered properly, that it is not Pork (or what is known to be haram), dead meat (taken from an animal while alive).
He has only forbidden to you dead animals, blood, the flesh of swine, and that which has been dedicated to other than Allah . But whoever is forced [by necessity], neither desiring [it] nor transgressing [its limit], there is no sin upon him. Indeed, Allah is Forgiving and Merciful. Quran (2:173)
“Whatever is cut from an animal hen it is still alive, what is cut from it is Maitah (dead meat).” Grade : Hasan (Darussalam), Book 28, Hadith 3337
It is well known that mankind can live without meat (vegan), since meat in most cases ancient case was known as a luxury (to this day in some places it could be).
To solve most of the issue (farming industry) try getting your meat from a local farmer (if possible) and look for yourself to the condition of the animals. If we all did this really there would be no need for such a industry to exist.
You can mention meat all day but even if you go the vegan way you must be careful since there is also a major fitna in the agro industry which is GMO (Genetically Modified Organism), which some country banned for potential health issue.
So to make it short it is not that something halal is being bad today due to the industry but rather our approach towards these very halal things are causes for concern.
For each one are successive [angels] before and behind him who protect him by the decree of Allah . Indeed, Allah will not change the condition of a people until they change what is in themselves. And when Allah intends for a people ill, there is no repelling it. And there is not for them besides Him any patron. Quran(13,11)
So my short answer would be to support your local farmers.
I hope it answers the question.
