How Can Chicken Farms Reduce Their Carbon Footprint?

Chickens might not burp and fart methane like cows do but raising and feeding them still has a significant impact on the climate. And on top of that, chicken production currently faces issues ranging from waste management to antibiotic resistance to a business model that impedes free market competition and places huge burdens on farmers, often driving them to bankruptcy. This episode looks at the environmental, economic, and health impacts of raising and eating chicken, and considers where America’s most-consumed meat could go from here. Featuring special guest Dr. Zdravka Tzankova, Associate Professor of Sociology at Vanderbilt University.
