New poultry research center aims to ‘push poultry industry forward’
A new poultry research and education facility has opened at Auburn University.
The new facility has a poultry management research facility, an infectious disease facility, and an equipment testing and demonstration facility.
They aim to open a hatchery, a battery house, chamber and breeder houses and floor pen houses in the near future.
Paul Patterson, dean of Auburn’s College of Agriculture said:
“It is our goal to be the leading institution in poultry research, education and outreach in the United States if not the world.
“We aspire to be the go-to destination when new challenges face the poultry industry. This is a lofty goal, but I think it is one well within reach, particularly with the development of these new facilities.”
