“Dis” Assembly Plant

Record #:
Assembly lines put things together, with a finished product coming out at the end. Sharpe reports on a dis-assembly line which takes things apart, also with a finished product at the end--in this case chickens. Sharpe, using photographs, describes the line at the Chatham County Siler City Poultry Exchange. The plant can process 20,000 pounds of chicken a day with six minutes needed to process each bird.
