At the mills I'm familiar with, the additives come in by tank truck. (However, I couldn't pass up a chance to use rail service on the A&O Sub. biggrin.gif ) I hear it refered to as "protein". It's my understanding that it is a liquid additive derived from "by-products" (left overs/rejects) from poultry processing. This is then mixed-in with the feed to boost its nutritional value to the chickens.

One trucking company that supplies protein to the Waldron mill has "Liquid Chicken!" lettered on the back of their chrome tankers!

"Mole-asses." Classic.

The Big Cheese is correct. My Tyson franchisee friend said that nothing is wasted in chicken processing. The unmentionables, along with the rendered fat, are collected at Tyson processing plants, refined, and then added to the feed as protein supplements and whatnot.

Tank car loads of the goop may be carloads of fancy, but they're not far from the mark.
