    corporate

    What is the difference between 'corporate cattle farm' and 'cattle farm company'? Could they both be considered as synonyms?

    Re: corporate

    I've never seen these terms before, and without some context, I can only guess at what they mean.
    A 'corporate cattle farm' sounds like it's a cattle farm owned by a large company.
    A 'cattle farm company' sounds like it's a company that sells or deals in cattle farms.

    I'd interpret them the same way, but I have also never heard them used.

    Re: corporate

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Corporate_farming

    "Corporate farming" is a term meant to denigrate large-scale food production and its methods, by the type of people for whom "corporate" is an obvious slur. So, depending on the context, one would be expected to have a negative reaction to the idea of a "corporate cattle farm," where a cattle farm company is neutral.
