USPOULTRY and the USPOULTRY Foundation have approved approximately $400,000 for seven new research grants at six institutions through the Comprehensive Research Program. Four of the approved projects have application to the production of either chicken or turkey meat.

Since the inception of the research program, USPOULTRY has reinvested more than $32 million dollars into the industry in the form of research grants. More than fifty universities, federal or state institutions have received grants over the years.

 

The research grants for each institution include:
