The footage captures scenes of the Texas poultry industry. Hundreds of turkeys and chicken are seen on poultry farms, likely in Waller, Texas. The producer of this film, Jim W. Keeland, was a photographer and videographer in the Houston area for sixty years. He took photographs and films for Houston's NBC affiliate, KPRC-TV, from 1948 until 1961, worked for the Houston Post from 1951 to 1982 as a printer, and was a freelance photographer of agricultural subjects.
