Your USPOULTRY Foundation is making a difference! We are building on our success, having invested $379,675 in the
industry over the last year.
Our leadership is more important than ever as the industry faces unparalleled challenges – from the price of ethanol and the ever increasing burden of regulatory control, to declining sources for funding important research.
The Foundation’s mission is clear:
Support the recruitment and training of the brightest students
Seek and fund scientific research
Foster student scientists
Promote careers in the poultry and egg industry
We look forward to continuing our legacy of success and partnering with you and other industry leaders to ensure the future.
With your help, we can build the next generation of leaders in the poultry industry.
