The chicken: the most popular victim in the world

From an interesting article of the German newspaper “taz”:

“Since April of this year, the “Climate Cabinet” of the Federal Government has been struggling to find sustainable solutions for transport and agriculture. German society is debating meat abstinence, and consumption of beef and pork is slowly declining. Only the chicken has none of it.

 

622 million broiler chickens landed in slaughterhouses in 2018, 23 million more than in the previous year. 81 percent of all slaughtered animals in Germany are broiler chickens. Chicken breast fillet, 300 grams for 4 euros. Never before has so much poultry been consumed as it is today.

Not only in Germany, but worldwide.

The chicken has become a mass product. The super-bred chicken that grows faster and delivers more meat and eggs than ever before.

“The Ross 308 is recognized worldwide as a broiler that delivers consistent performance. Producers appreciate the growth rate, feed efficiency and robust performance of the Ross 308. “

This is how it is in the product description of the animal.

Read on the website of the American company Aviagen, one of the largest broiler breeders in the world. There is also a manual for the Ross 308, called “Broiler Manual.”

In addition to tips on temperature control in the house and the recommended amount of feed and the performance of the animals is recorded. Four kilos in 40 days!

The American company belongs to the German Erich Wesjohann Group, EW Group for short, a network of 28 German and 81 foreign companies.
The group is the world market leader in chicken genetics.

Through breeding, the EW Group has succeeded in turning the chicken from a tender little bird into a chunk of meat.
In a machine whose body weighs about three kilos more than in 1957, and almost twice as many eggs laid as in the 1960s, today about 300 pieces per year.

My comment: What we see in the photo is what’s be eaten all around the world.

The offer responds to demand; The buyer is responsible. Every animal killed is a murder that we order!
And companies like Wiesenhof or Aviagen are the ones who commit this murder.

The argument that torment breeding is the result of the demand for cheap meat is wrong and hypocritical!

The price has nothing to do with the conditions of keeping or the conditions of production of meat or other animal products.

Foie gras e.g. is (allegedly) a delicacy, is offered at maximum prices. The “production” is hard to beat every disgusting animal cruelty.

Just like the caviar. The sturgeons are slashed alive, the eggs removed, the animal thrown away.

Lobster is often thrown alive in boiling water (in Germany even the prescribed killing species).

Just because something is expensive does not mean that the animal has not to suffer.

Likewise, no one can guarantee that expensive chickens on the shelf had a nice life in the stable!
Whether it’s a conventional or a “Ross 308” chicken, in the end, all animals die a cruel death.

It is high time to finish the murderous work of the chicken barons and butchers.

My best regards to all, Venus
