Another What is this Post

by Kay~Kacey on 10/2/2009

Yes, dear readers, I come to you once again to ask…what IS this??

I’m not sure if this was in North Carolina or Virginia, but there were a ton of these. Miles and miles of these buildings.

Okay, we’re guessing they are for tobacco crops…but most of the tobacco crops we saw were already brown. These fields…for miles…were still bright green. Our guess was maybe these buildings are for drying the tobacco leaves?

Can you help a girl out? Anyone from the area want to either shoot down our theory or agree with it? (Quite often we get shot down…)

I think that the owners grow chickens in the floor of the builidings and dry tobacco in the rafters. Double cropping like this increases the nicotene in the chickens from whatever leaves fall and the chickens eat. This causes the eaters of the chickens to crave smoking. At the same time the movement of the chickens below increases air flow and heat to dry the leaves faster and bet them to market sooner. :roll: (though some parties amongst us may not agree with this concept)

Hmmm. Looks like soybeans to me. Maybe they are rotating the crops. You know, like we learned in social studies? Those do look like tobacco barns, though. Nice tobacco barns….okay, I’m done;)

Feeder bins are a dead give-away. Those are chicken or turkey houses. We have a lot of those here in Arkansas.

It’s a conspiracy and SG has exposed it! :rofl:

I was thinking chickens, too.

My husband obviously had way, way too much coffee…

Those buildings are definitely for fowl. Ths little silos are where the feed is stored. Could be tobacco in this field, but more likely it’s soybeans.
This is fun.

I’m a recovering farm girl. Those are turkey houses and the green stuff in the field is soy beans. The window blinds are usually adjusted per the indoor temperatures via computer. And yes, feed is stored in the little silos – feed that is full of antibiotics – yuck.
