Cleaning this Barn

Farmers always want to keep their birds and animals healthy, instead of having to treat any sickness. You've learned in other parts of this tour why biosecurity is so important to turkey farmers. It's critical to take steps to prevent diseases being brought onto this farm, or into this barn, that could harm the birds in any way.

For this reason, when these birds go to market in 2.5 weeks, the barn will be cleaned out. Equipment is all cleaned and sanitized, including all of the feeders and water lines. That way, everything is clean, disinfected and ready for the next flock of birds that will live in this barn.
