Boost for dairy & poultry industries: Fish and beer waste are food for cattle, poultry
 
KOCHI: What if hens lay low-cholesterol and therefore, healthier eggs, cows produce 30% more milk with cheaper cattle feed and butter chicken becomes more nutritious? There must be something fishy about this, or someone's been drinking, right? Right - and true.
 
India's poultry and dairy industries have discovered that fish residue and brewery waste as poultry and cattle feed, respectively, make eggs healthier and milk, more plentiful. The science is this: If hens are fed with fish residue, the healthy cholesterol-battling Omega-3 fatty acids in fish oil easily move through the hen's digestive system to the yolk of the egg, which is otherwise a cholesterol bomb. Even butter chicken will be relatively healthy if the bird is fed this diet.
