  Wow! Canada is good at Poultry production!
From a 2005 Agriculture Canada PDF:

Poultry production and processing are
among the most highly mechanized sectors
in agriculture. One person can operate a unit
of 50,000 broiler chickens, which, with seven
lots per year, will provide 640 tonnes of meat
annually. Poultry processing plants in
Canada are effectively mechanized, which
allows them to slaughter and prepare 25,000
broiler chickens for market per hour.


In 2006 Canada produced 973,649,000 kg of eviscerated Chicken

Chicken consumption in Canada has increased by about 50% in the last 20 years.

The average Canadian consumed 21.2kg of Chicken in 1987, up to 31.8kg by 2006!

So does this mean that for every vegetarian, someone is eating 63.6kg of Chicken?

Some stats from PDF's found here...


This is some interesting stuff...

I think a lot. Some people say I think too much... However, I don't want to be seen as being aloof or pretentious, it's just that I really enjoy philosophical questions and deep thoughts. That's not to say that I don't find pleasure in more down-to-earth or trivial things, like beer and soccer :) I'm happily married with 3 wonderful children. I'm a partner in a technology services company based in Toronto. Myers Briggs says I'm an ENTJ
