Documentary about the village of Barneveld.
Panoramic overview of the Gelderland town of Barneveld, and shots of its monuments and buildings, followed by a report about the main economic activity in Barneveld, namely poultry. This industrail branch is equipped with the latest breeding and incubation technology; eggs from Gelderland are even sold in London.
The lively chicken market in Barneveld offers a glimpse into how people handle the poultry: the animals are brutally, carelessly, and inhumanely seized by the throat. By contrast, the eggs are carefully packed and shipped.
