South Korean heat wave kills 780,000 chickens

August 8, 2012 CLIMATESouth Korea’s extended heat-wave has taken its toll on both humans and animals, with more than 830,000 chickens or other poultry reported dead as of Wednesday. The agriculture ministry said 786,512 chickens, 40,780 ducks, 3,000 quail, 336 pigs and five cows have died since July 20, when the peak temperature began hovering above 33 Celsius (91.4 Fahrenheit) in most areas. The stifling heat also killed seven people in June and July, the health ministry said, mostly elderly people working in fields or greenhouses. Temperatures have stayed above 35 C for 12 days in much of the country, causing massive blooms of algae in rivers. Sales of electric fans and air conditioners have soared. On Monday the state power company warned that reserves were dangerously low and urged people to switch off appliances, as usage reached a record. The meteorological administration says relief is in sight starting Friday, with midday temperatures dropping to the customary August figure of 30C from the weekend. –Terra Daily

    I wonder what the losses in United States are like. I used to work on poultry farm and the chickens are often crowded into broiler houses, and large fans are the only thing keeping them cool. When weather gets hot, many die from the heat. I remember when we had hot days like that, we would suffer high losses and have truckloads of dead chickens to dispose of. It would not surprise me if USA poultry farms are losing as many or more.
