When it says "as quickly as possible" is that to keep up with fast paced time at which someone is trying to keep up with a conveyor belt, or "is quickly as possible" referring to the actual time it takes to slaughter as to being painless for the bird?

"Technology makes slaughter extremely quick to minimize discomfort. While making a single cut to the throat of an unconscious bird is largely effective, should the blade miss for any reason, trained workers stand by to quickly euthanize remaining birds. Proper maintenance of equipment and this back-up “human” system is key to a fast and humane slaughter process." To me it seems that the phrase "quickly as possible" actually does mean exactly that. I think this is a pretty humane method for slaughtering poultry. I also found some information on other methods used for slaughter that may show this is mostly done humanely. Here is a link to the article. ( ) Hope this helps! -Dakota Reference: Admin. “How Are Chickens Slaughtered and Processed for Meat?” Chicken Check In , 20 Dec. 2017, .

When it comes to the diseases themselves, what seems to be the most common diseases and causes that plague flocks? (https Leanne Holder (h ! ps://psu.instructure.com/groups/444640/users/6665084) Yesterday " Reply # ! Cameron, This is an interesting question. Based on my research, there are a wide variety of diseases that are common in poultry. I found some websites that provide information on a lot of common diseases, as well as symptoms, treatment options, ways they are transmitted and more. I attached two links to the sites. I think they will definitely answer your question. ( ) - management/maintaining-healthy-flock/diseases-causes ( -

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
