What came first the chicken or the egg?

According to Wikipedia the chicken or the egg causality dilemma is commonly stated as “which came first, the chicken or the egg?” To ancient philosophers, the question about the first chicken or egg also evoked the questions of how life and the universe in general began. One might add today that it evokes how we might protect and preserve it .

I received a call from a retailer today with a question relative to today’s post, “Do you have humane procurement procedures in place for your meat and poultry purchases?”

The question really did not speak to the title of this post, but asked if I could give them a few suggestions or areas where they might look in order to begin to understand and develop humane sourcing procedures.

We discussed the subject in some length. Actually in more detail than I will cover in this post, but I suggested for starters that they visit www.americanhumane.org. American Humane Certified protects farm animals by working with producers through the groundbreaking American Humane Certified™ farm animal program (formerly known as the Free Farmed program). American Humane Certified guarantees consumers that the products they select are from animals that were raised and treated humanely.

This site goes well beyond the humane treatment of just farm animals and is a great educational resource for procurement professionals and other associates as well that are interested in humane treatment in general.

We look forward to and appreciate your comments.
