Answer When you are talking about broiler chickens its takes six weeks or 42 days to grow a chicken from hatch to slaughter.
A slaughter cow is a mature female bovine that has already given birth at least once or twice and has been culled from the breeding herd to be sent to slaughter.
This is an ambiguous question that is impossible to answer because of a few important unknowns: Location, location, location. Hence the question is impossible to answer in… a truthful, factual matter.
World wide, an estimated 140 BILLION animals are killed for food every year. This includes marine animals (about 50 billion). So about 383 million animals every day (including… marine animals), or 246 million land animals slaughtered every day for food.
5,700, acording to Wikipedia. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Slaughterhouse
Consumption varies throughout the year, but the average is around 12.3/day.
It is probably more useful to convert the methane into kg so it can be measured against kg of CO2. There are different figures available but the US Environment Protection Agen…cy consider it to be 80-110 kg of methane a year.
They can, but normally a dairy cow doesn't have decent meat on them (after generations of selective breeding for milk production, the qualities of a good beef cow are of…ten lessened or lost).
Only 10 to 20 lbs of grain per day is sufficient, as long as you are feeding her roughage at the same time to avoid any potential illness like acidosis.
One web site suggests 2.6 million cattle are slaughtered in the UK every year. That works out to some 7000 per day. However, the UK also imports beef from the Netherlands, Ger…many, Uruguay, Argentina, South America, and elsewhere around the world. An analysis of supermarket purchases suggest about half the beef consumed in the UK is imported, which would raise the total number of cows eaten per day a bit over ten thousand. The population of the UK is 61 million. Not all of those 61 million will eat beef every day, but what is ten thousand cows divided among 61 million people? There is about 400 lbs of meat per cow, or 4 million pounds of meat per day, which works out to about 1 oz per person per day. That is probably pretty accurate, considering that some of those 61 million are vegetarians, and some don't eat beef every day. A nice 7 oz steak or hamburger per person per week--the figure we derived (10,000/day) is probably pretty close.
a couple billion.
One 1000 lb cow with or without a calf will consume 25 lbs of feed/forage per day in dry matter (DM) ration. This is equivalent to what's called the Animal Unit (AU), since 1 …AU = 1 x 1000 lb cow with or without a calf. In context, this means that a cow or a bovine of any size will eat 2.5% of his/her body weight in DM ration per day. Actual or as-fed consumption varies with moisture content of the feed or forage.
The amount of milk produced will differ depending on the breed of the cow. However, assuming that 20L of milk per day per cow is reasonably average and that a glass of milk …is 250ml, one cow would produce around 80 glasses of milk daily.
One estimate is 35 million cattle slaughtered annually in the United States. The beef industry gave the figure 32.7 million in a recent year.
