Ruz-Mora 1 Jorge Ruz-Mora Monica Sedore ENC 1101 29 October 2009 Response Assignment: Pollan What makes the Polyface farm so successful is that it is based on a biological systems. Every part of the farm is used and recycled there is no waste. Also there is no use of chemical, antibiotics, or machinery, everything that gets produced or used in the farm comes from a natural process. The farm is based on a natural ecosystem rather than industrial machinery. In the farm, the chickens are placed in a patch of grass that they fertilize and sanitize for a period of 24 hours, after that they are moved to another patch of grass. At the same time this helps feed the cows because the grass gets fertilized by the chickens, who feed on the larvae that grow on the cow's manure after three days. This is a perfect example that shows the success of the farm. Because the grass is sanitized by the chickens, the cows do not need any antibiotics

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
