How many cows are slaughtered per day in the US?
One child is born every 7 seconds which translates to 12,343 birthsper day in the U.S. (rounded to the nearest whole number)
Answer . When you are talking about broiler chickens its takes six weeks or 42 days to grow a chicken from hatch to slaughter.
It is impossible to tell because average consumption is based on the amount of meat or beef consumed per day (or year), not "how many cows [that] are eaten...[per] day." Thus …the question has no merit no matter how you try to look at it.
This is an ambiguous question that is impossible to answer becauseof a few important unknowns: Location, location, location. Hencethe question is impossible to answer in a tru…thful, factual matter.
Cattle are rendered unconscious by applying an electric shock to the back of the head, or by a captive bolt pistol to the front of the head. The animals are then hung upside d…own by both hind legs on the processing line. The cartoid artery and jugular vein are severed with a knife, allowing the animal to bleed out. This results in death of the animal, if the animal hasn't already died from the shock or bolt to its head. The legs, head, and tail are then removed, and care, when removing the offal, is taken to cut around the digestive tract to prevent contamination to the rest of the meat. After skinning the carcass, it is cut in half, which allows the butcher to remove and discard the spinal cord. The carcass is then allowed to hang and cure for several weeks before being cut up for meat.
Ranchers slaughter many of their steers (male cows) at about 1 to 2years of age, when they are essentially full-grown.
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
The average slaughter weight for a cow (if, as the term "cow" goes, you are referring to a mature female bovine that has had at least one or two calves), be she beef or dairy,… is the same weight that that cow is when she reaches maturity. This weight depends on her breeding, her frame size and her condition. The average weight for all cows is around 1400 to 1600 lbs. However, a cow of any size and weight can be slaughtered. She can be as small as only 700 lbs, or as large as over 2000 lbs. However, if you are referring to the term "cow" as a colloquial term and are referring to young cattle that are raised for beef, such as steers (castrated male bovines) and heifers that are not suitable as breeding females, then they typically would be slaughtered when they are around 1400 lbs at 18 to 24 months of age. Most cattle are not slaughtered on a weight basis: they are slaughtered based on what their body condition or grade is. An animal that is raised for the purpose of making steaks and roasts out of it has to be graded as preferably Choice or Prime. Choice/Prime animals are not on the verge of being considered overweight or obese, since typically no rib or spinal bones should be showing, and the animal must have a round, plump rear and appear thick in the ribs and barrel. Thus, for example, if a Charolais steer weighs 1400 lbs and only grades as Select or lower as far as appearances are concerned, he has to be kept longer on feed until he appears to have reached that Choice or Prime grade. As a result, he may weigh 1800 lbs by the time he is slaughtered.
Consumption varies throughout the year, but the average is around 12.3/day.
The average rate of consumption of water ranges from 6 percent to10 percent of a bovine's body weight per day. Water consumptiondepends on the animal's weight, the salinity of… the feed it isconsuming, air temperature, reproductive stressors such as if theanimal is lactating or not, age, type (beef or dairy), breed, andothers.
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.
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.
Certainly not much, especially if you are going in terms of tons, not pounds (lbs). A 1000 lb cow with or without a calf will eat 25 lbs DM of forage per day. This amount chan…ges with moisture content, so if the grass she eats has a 60% moisture content, she'll eat maybe around 40 lbs of grass per day, as fed. In terms of tons, that's 0.02 tons per day. If you were looking for a much bigger or grandioso number for how much a cow eats per day, it looks like you're plumb outta luck!
Depending on the milking procedure and how many times the dairy cow is milked per day, a cow will produce anywhere between 4 and 11 gallons of milk a day.
