Awhile back we talked about how many chickens would be needed for SHTF. I would like to do this article in the same manner as the chicken article.
Lets start with one very important question, and that is how much meat does the average person eat? To find the answer lets turn to the US census.
Average US meat consumption in 2009:
|Commodity||Weight / Number|
|Red Meat, includes beef, veal, lamb and pork.||105.7 pounds|
|Poultry, includes chicken and turkey.||69.4 pounds|
For right now lets exclude eggs and focus on red meat and poultry. We will talk about eggs later.
