Did you know that cattle are routinely fed the waste from the floor of commercial chicken houses? That's feces, feathers, spilled feed, straw, dirt and anything else on the floor under the cramped birds.
Chicken farmers have more chicken waste than they know what to do with. And cattle feedlots are always on the lookout for low cost feed. But against that simple cost benefit, we need to weigh the safety of our food.
The practice of feeding chicken waste to cattle is both disgusting and unsafe. It must end. Tell the FDA to stop cattle companies from feeding chicken waste to cows.
