421,000 tonnes of chicken feet?

That's one heck of a lot of chicken feet.

The background is one of those interminable trade wars between the US and China. The US is worried about the quality of some chicken sent to there from China. They're thus restricting imports. However, China also buys some parts of chickens from the US: notably chicken feet. 421,000 tonnes a year to be precise, which is really rather a lot of chicken feet.

That's, umm, $665 dollars per tonne of chicken feet: would you pay that much for that? I think I'd happily pay that much to get rid of a tonne of them.....
