Sustainable Buffer Systems on the Chicken Farm

“On our farm, we have a buffer system in between every chicken house. So any type of rain that comes and hits our heavy use pads or our roof runs into that grass buffer and is absorbed by the grasses that are there or the shrubs that we have planted. So that makes sure that none of the nutrients that could leave the farm leave the farm.” – Rachel Rhodes, broiler chicken farmer from Maryland
