Guest lecture by Mrs. George Cartanza

It is so glad that Mrs. Georgie Cartanza was invited to came to our class to talk about the evolution of the poultry industry on Delmarva where produces 9.6% of national production. I learned many interesting things about the history of the poultry industry. For every 1 job in the poultry industry it creates 7 jobs in the community.  It is quite different about farm between today and past in many aspects.  Today poultry farms have automatic pan feeders,  nipple drinkers, solid walled houses and so on. Those advanced technology improve the chicken life and save time and cost for  the farmers.  Chicken nowadays can grow more fast than the past, some people may think that it is because of the hormones and steroids. But that theory is false. There is improvements in genetics, nutrition, housing and technology which cause the achievement that chicken can grow up to 4,202 g in 56 days. It is so important to be mindful of the truth behind the information edited by social media.  The information may be the one that they want people to know,  not the truth.
