Why Windrow?

by Allen Reynolds September 27, 2019

"Why Windrow?” kicks off our 4-week series on the popular approach in commercial broiler poultry farming—windrowing. Allen talks about the specific type of bacteria responsible for wreaking havoc in your poultry house and then dives into the major benefits of the windrow method. 


Whether you clean out, cake out, till or windrow, you know managing litter can be a bulk of your operation. If you windrow by choice or mandate, you may wonder if it really makes a difference, or maybe you have become curious with the growing popularity of the windrow method. In this Poultry Biosecurity Ed series, we will walk you through best practices, use science to explain the benefits and share why YOU should do it too! 

 If you need help with your windrow, strengthening your natural defenses or simply would like to learn more, the Southland Organics team is here. Connect with me, Allen Reynolds, at 800-608-3755 or allen@southlandorganics.com.
