Poultry Farm

Educating poultry producers and industry professionals on the importance of proper on-farm management, feed milling practices, and processing techniques is essential for the poultry industry to deliver a safe and wholesome product. The Alabama Cooperative Extension System’s poultry team provides research-based information in the following areas:

  • Broiler- and breeder-flock management
  • Feed-milling improvements
  • Processing-plant management for food safety and meat quality
  • Agribusiness economics
  • Nutrient management
  • Small and backyard flocks

The team makes connections with poultry processing personnel and regulatory officials, poultry companies, and farmers. They also provide resources to small and backyard flock owners.
