Overview Of Poultry Farmers
POULTRY FARMERS AROUND THE WORLD COME IN ALL SHAPES AND SIZES. BUT WHO ARE THEY?
We all love chicken. Well, most of us do.
Chicken doesn’t only put the “C” in KFC; it sets the T in “tasty” and the poultry into farming.
Oh yes, poultry farming is a thing, and it is a big thing involving animal husbandry, leading to the raising of domesticated birds or fowls.
To those who consider the words chickens, ducks, turkeys or geese as “fowl” language, well bear with us, as poultry farmers use these words to produce meat or eggs for food. Never, we must add, offend anyone.
Jokes aside, it is undoubtedly massive and legitimate business, never running “fowl” of the law.
Okay, puns aside, this type of farming is done by poultry farmers.
Such farmers, poultry farmers, are charged with the daily care of chickens, turkeys, ducks, or plenty of other poultry species.
The poultry species are as diverse as the activities of these farmers, who do this work chiefly to raise such poultry for meat production.
In Uganda, there are approximately 44 million chickens. But, so recently, there was a scarcity of maize, which serves as feed for commercial and backyard flocks of birds.
Yes, these chickens sure can eat!
Of this figure (44 million), much of the meat consumption in Uganda is courtesy of chicken, which makes up 65.2% of all the meat consumed by Ugandans.
The world over, this figure gets bigger.
In the USA, the average American consumes a jaw-dropping 201 pounds of meat per year.
Consequently, there are more than 8 billion chickens consumed per year in the United States of America.
So the importance of the poultry farmer cannot be underestimated in any shape or fashion.
It is a critical farming role.
