    al.com: 60 years of engineering the perfect chicken: meatier, cheaper, faster growing

    Sixty years ago, it could take up to 16 weeks to grow a three-pound chicken fit for eating.

    The breasts would be very small. The meat itself would be tougher because of the bird's age.

    Today, things have changed. Poultry farmers are growing larger, five-pound chickens in about six weeks.

    That's on less than 10 pounds of feed. The modern result is the type of breast "you can make a really good Chick-fil-A sandwich out of."

It has finally happened, both corn and soybean meal (and crude oil as well) are down from the clouds and appear to be stable at much lower levels, at least for this year. Barring an important drought this year in the US, grain prices should remain low through the entire year, and barring political problems, crude oil should remain low as well.
