Title:
Growth cycle

Description:
A typical broiler farm will raise and ship 6 flocks per year on an 8-week cycle. In between the growing of each flock the barn is totally cleaned and disinfected for the next flock. This practice ensures that the chickens stay healthy by preventing the spread of disease from one flock to the next.
