As per your question the fiber consumption for 1 year is 20000(consumption for 1day) x 365 =7300000

 So If the word cycle in your question  means 1 hr of production the answer would be 1460 cycles(7300000/5000) 

and if the word cycle in  your question means a day of production it would take 182.5 days(1460/8 as in a day we work 8hrs per day) to produce fiber required for 1 year.

Please feel free to contact if you want the cost calculation for the fiber production for 1 year.
