This is the way to go, once we get technology to the point where we can simply cultivate protein/meat without growing the whole animal. All of the meat, none of the suffering; win-win.

I'm laughing at this.

But Replicators wouldn't cultivate the meat; they'd take energy and create the meat; no growth.

The people closely associated with the namesake of female canines are suffering from a nondescript form of lunacy.

Fair enough, but I fail to see how growing meat in a lab is any creepier than the (quite frankly) inhumane things we do to animals to support our meat eating habits. Now wait, I'm not one of those PETA fucktards who firebombs research labs (I prefer the ASPCA personally). But if given the option to have the meat without the animal suffering, I'd take it.

We'd still need to control to food-animals populations to prevent them from becoming pests to surrounding ecology.

If you want my opinion - what we have done to human engineered turkeys is disgusting and inhumane. But we don't eat the bones, so we are not concerned if they can maintain the structure that holds up the animal. The less bone, the better.

I'd like to see what would happen if the human skeleton collapsed out from under us when we try to walk.

The real turkeys, the ones that evolved without human intervention, are just fine and they can fly just fine. And they are well adapted and smart, and they are not going extinct.

Dodgy

Let's just get rid of the man-made turkeys and start again! We clearly did not do a good enough job the first time around, and now that we have better understanding of genetics; we should try again to build fatter, but better lived food-turkeys.
No?

Just outcrossing would improve things immensely.

It's a profit thing - the breast has to be as big as can be. (where did I hear that before? Tongue) The bones should be lightweight and thin. That makes for the most profit. People think the bird is "plump".

Trouble is, such an animal is only temporarily viable. As soon as the giant breast fills in, the skeleton collapses.

If breeders would take a small financial hit and outcross periodically, a better structured bird would result. And I bet there would be a niche market for it right away. In time, the improved flavor would draw more and more buyers. If you like turkey gravy, you would totally appreciate having wild birds crossed in. Flavors are getting more and more bland.
