Mag-iipot


While eating my dinner last night, i was watching television show on TFC at the same time and it caught my attention because of the very interesting topic about chickens on Correspondents hosted by Karen Davila,Yes the poultry industry in the Philippines.There is a new job that is generated behind the 150 million chickens and the 15 Billion pesos poultry industry(statistics presented if i am not mistaken) and that job is MAG-IIPOT and by watching it, i cant and i don't finished on what I'm eating because of the videos that was shown.


Ipot means "droppings", or excrement/fecal matter from animals, usually pertaining to smaller types. The word ipot itself is more closely associated with bird droppings than any other animal’s or A juicy globule of bird shit in short TAE and mag iipot is the person who collects it.Nakakaawa naman ang mga mag-iipot because they are not using any protective gear against the bad odor produced by the droppings.The cost of one full sack that mag-iipot collected is only 6 pesos and by that it gives me the idea to value every money that i have.Mahirap talaga kumita ng pera.Dr RJ what can you say about this?May mag iipot din ba dyan sa farm mo sa Australia?

Wow! Muli na namang nabigyang-pansin ang buhay ng mga manok at mga magmamanok sa show na 'yon!

Yes may mga nagkokolekta rin ng mga 'ipot-manok' dito sa farm, at dahil nga broilers ang mga manok namin dito, at the end of the cycle lang ginagawa ang dung collection. Makabago na ang mga kagamitang ipinapasok sa loob ng chicken shed para makuha ang mga ito. Highly-mechanized na. Dito sa Australia, talagang tinututukan ang Health and Safety in the Workplace kaya kumpleto rin ang mga workers sa mga body protection gears, masks, boots, gloves, etc.

Ang mga ipot-manok na kanilang nakukuha rito ay dinadala/binebeta sa mga (halamanan ng mga) Asyano [Vietnamese, Cambodians] na syang nagmamay-ari ng mga matagumpay na taniman ng mga gulay rito sa South Australia.

Ang kumikita dyan yung "middlemen" because they know where to send it to. Yung mag-iipot are just workers earning 6-8 pesos per sack compared to take-home pay of P40-60,000/day when passed to the fishpen owners.
