How To Increase The Weight of a Broiler Chicken!

Broiler rearing for meat is a very amazing, interesting and profitable experience. Whether you’re doing this on a large scale or small scale, it is a rewarding process. Image
The broiler chicken is a special species of poultry as it is scientifically made to produce more meat in a very short period of time say 4-6 weeks when they weigh around 1.2- 1.7kg. One of the most dominant Broiler chickens being reared for meat is the Cornish.
However Consumers nowadays want to buy big, healthy birds, so it’s up to poultry farmers to find ways to increase the weight of their broiler chickens as safely and naturally as possible.

For your chicken to grow fast and gain more Weight try this:

This Special Issue of Animal Frontiers was written by a stellar interdisciplinary consortium of experts, to summarize the evidence on the societal impact of #meat. We hope that it may serve as a reference for future discussions on this vital topic.

As stated in our editorial (with co-guest editor @ederer_peer) "our request of the authors was not to reflect on the most granular levels of current scientific argumentation [but] to derive what can be robustly learned & has most societal significance"

The publication is a formalized scientific follow-up of the International Summit on the Societal Role of Meat, hosted by @teagasc in 2022, featuring various authors of the Special Issue. The Dublin presentations can be viewed here:…

Why do we need seniors to have access to a ketogenic diet to help ward off dementia? Because telling them to eat more fish and blueberries is woefully insufficient! Think I am making this up? I am not. It's time for a thread on a recent study. 🧵 (1/19)
The objective of this study was to examine the relationship between consumption frequency of meat, fish, fruits, and vegetables and long-term risk of dementia and Alzheimer’s disease while taking into account the possibility of protopathic bias (i.e., reverse causation). (2/19)
The researchers analyzed data from the Three-city study, which followed 5,934 volunteers aged 65 and over for 12 years. (3/19)

Back in college, I was once appearing for a viva vôce of an economics related subject. The examiner asked us an out-of-syllabus question, "Why do you think the govt gives subsidies for poultry industry?" I will remain forever grateful to my 🧠 for bringing up the answer! Tiny🧵👇🏼
For reasons I still do not understand, my brain remembered something we are taught in primary school. Kwashiorkor is a disease caused by severe protein deficiency. Shamefully, children still die due to it in India. After getting reminded of kwashiorkor, I connected the dots.
I replied, "Kwashiorkor is still prevalent in India. By subsidizing the poultry industry, the govt is trying to increase supply of chicken. This will reduce prices of chicken thus making it more affordable to those who want to eat it. This can help reduce protein deficiency."

Its not so #cool as it sounds... because of the following,

#Eating #redmeat has been associated with various #health problems, including:
#Cardiovascular disease: High consumption of red meat has been linked to an increased risk of #heart disease due to

the high levels of saturated fat and #cholesterol found in red meat.
#Cancer: Several studies have suggested that high consumption of red meat, particularly processed #meat, can increase the risk of certain cancers, such as colon cancer.
Type 2 #diabetes: Red meat consumption has been linked to an increased risk of developing type 2 diabetes, potentially due to the high fat content.
#Obesity: High consumption of red meat has been linked to an increased risk of obesity due to its high #calorie and fat content.

Let me start with #insulin. In the 1970s, insulin was extracted from the pancreas of animals. In the 1980s, @Genentech, working with Eli Lilly (@LillyPad), developed insulin using a new technology that I call #PrecisionFermentation. It wasn’t animal insulin. It was human insulin.
The mainstream would say: “health care is slow, it can’t be disrupted.”

Well, here’s the S-curve of #PrecisionFermentation human insulin. Human insulin disrupted animal insulin in about 13 years.
#PrecisionFermentation is a concept that I coined in my @rethink_x report ‘Rethinking Food and Agriculture’ with @CatherineTubb in September 2019.

Are the charges against meat and livestock justified? Are we looking at this debate in a holistic way? Are we certain of the evidence against meat? Image
Or are policymakers afflicted by "Carbon Tunnel Vision" and not taking into account the multidimensional value livestock have to human health, rural livelihoods and ecosystem function? Image

Last month, @WMO reported that methane emissions are rising faster than ever.

Today, we explore how governments fail to tackle methane emissions from animal agriculture—and why we need to slash methane emissions now to tackle #GlobalWarming and ensure a livable future. 1/13 Image
2020 and 2021 saw the largest increases in methane emissions since records began, according to @WMO.

Their data indicates that biological sources, such as agriculture, are responsible, rather than #methane from gas leaks. @ConservationOrg reports. 2/13…
Animal agriculture contributes to global warming through GHG emissions, including methane and nitrous oxide.

Millions of ruminant animals raised for food globally, such as cows and sheep, emit #methane through a process called enteric fermentation. 3/13…

Are human bodies adapted to eating #meat and other animal source foods? And how do we know?

🧵 with summary of @aleph2020 info 👇…
Animals thrive best on diets resembling the ones to which they are physiologically adapted; it would be unlikely that Homo sapiens constitutes an exception to this principle. Any discussion on the healthiness of meat & other animal source foods should at least address this. Image
Homo sapiens emerged with the anatomical & physiological equipment of a habitual rather than facultative meat eater. Those who argue that the human diet is naturally herbivorous based on a phylogenetic relationship with apes overlook key divergences that occurred during evolution Image

This week, people have been discussing if eating #oysters conflicts with following a plant-based diet.

Today, we’re taking a look at the definition of sentience and #veganism—and at animal species that have been proven to be more sentient than humans used to think. 👇1/14 Image
Although there is legal and scientific disagreement about #sentience, there are some standards that are broadly accepted.

According to @SentienceInst, sentience is simply the ability to have positive and negative experiences, including pain. 2/14
The concept of animal #sentience is important for ethical reasons.

If #animals are sentient beings capable of feeling pain, most humans would agree that it is morally wrong to cause unnecessary pain or suffering to them. 3/14…

This week, the media reported on a @Cornell study, warning that #meat alternatives could cost millions of jobs.

The reports did not consider the human costs of animal agriculture and that a more #PlantBased food system would create jobs that don't involve slaughter.👇1/13

If you think #Nutriscore is bad, prepare for worse.

They've now decided that the scores are too benign for red #meat 🥩 - therefore, the algorithms will be tweaked so that this inconvenience is out of the way.

This is not science. This is a crusade.
There are many issues with #Nutriscore. Here are some examples that illustrate its often nonsensical outcomes (note that the designers already tweaked the score of olive oil from D to C to accommodate criticism from Mediterranean countries)
But given that the entire thing seems designed to give the prevailing dogma a boost, based on the magic of #nutritionism (calories! fibre! saturated fat!), some remained rather unhappy with the fact that red meat is often scoring A/B. Imagine, suggesting that meat's good for you!

This month, the dramatic #FarmersProtests in the Netherlands have captured the media's attention.

Today, we take a look at what the coverage got wrong about the #boerenprotest and the #BigAg interests many journalists failed to mention.👇 1/19… Image
🚫Most reports failed to mention 8 major companies that have an interest in protecting the status quo:

🐷 meat: @VionFoodGroup, @VanDrieGroup & @PlukonFoodGroup

🐮 dairy: @FrieslndCampina
💵 finance: @RaboFoodAgri

🔍"The Mighty Eight try to be invisible because the more it is seen as a #farmer protest and not the big industry behind it, the better,” says @FrankMechielsen, @feedback_europe.

@Agrifirm even supported the #boerenprotest financially, @NOS reports. 3/19…

Here's a surprising reason to be cheerful:

🟢40-60% of the weight of a slaughtered cow goes to making ground beef...

... and ground beef is by far the easiest meat product to replace with precision fermentation or cultivated meat.

Short 🧵 1/… #vegan
The #climate wrecking livestock industry is barely profitable as it is.

Globally it is propped up by much of the $540bn spent on #agriculture subsidies per year.

In the UK 90% of an average livestock farm's profits come from subsidies.

With such tight margins, farmers have to sell every single part of a cow for the numbers to add up. This is known as the 'carcass balance'.

So, if that 40-60% of the carcass balance is replaced, the business model of farming and killing these sentient beings collapses.

Happy #WorldSnakeDay. #Snakes have an unfair reputation as being poisonous/ aggressive. Our fear of snakes may come from Christianity. Satan took the form of a snake tempting Eve in the Garden of Eden. Yet snakes aren't bad at all! They're critical to ecosystems around the world
#Snakes evolved 130 million years ago in the Cretaceous period from a common ancestor that they share with #birds and other #reptiles. They have cloacal spurs or vestigal limbs, which shows their shared ancestry with limbed reptiles. #WorldSnakeDay 🐍🐍🐍
#Snakes see on the infrared spectrum using heat receptors called pit organs making them epic predators with natural night vision goggles to see prey. Snakes have a detachable jaw which can swallow food whole that is much larger than its own body weight. #WorldSnakeDay 🐍💚

Complaining about the right to choose?

Why wasn’t that right taken advantage of the night at the bar to NOT have Sex with someone ones barely knew?

A woman or man could EASILY say, “you know what I’m not going to sleep with this man/woman because if something were to happen
I’m not ready to have A baby, especially with someone I barely know” …

Same goes for pretty much EVERY OTHER SCENARIO that could be brought up.

If A woman is carrying A child from being rapped or some other Circumstances, there should be some kind of Exceptions.
