USPOULTRY invests millions
in poultry industry research
The U.S. Poultry & Egg Association and the USPOULTRY Foundation
have spent more than $30 million to foster progress.

USPOULTRY's
research programs
At any given time, USPOULTRY
is using more than $3 million to
finance 35 to 40 active research
projects. Since its inception,
USPOULTRY and the foundation
have invested more than $32 million
in research grants to address key
issues facing the industry.
These projects led to improvements in areas as varied as growth
rate, feed efficiency, egg production
and food safety. Past studies yielded
advances in poultry housing, feed
and water systems, construction
and ventilation systems. Others led
to progress in vaccine development

and disease control
programs that reduced
the incidence and
severity of poultry
diseases. These achievements allowed poultry
to reach optimal
production while maintaining a high level of
health and welfare.

Comprehensive
Research Program
The Comprehensive Research Program
(CRP) and the Board Research
Initiative (BRI) are the arms of the
USPOULTRY Research Program.
The CRP is the traditional
program and funds research in 17
broad topic areas addressing the
industry's priorities and needs.
Proposals are reviewed and evaluated twice a year by the Foundation
Research Advisory Committee
(FRAC), made up of 15 dedicated
industry technical experts. The most
relevant and needed proposals are
submitted and recommended for

The poultry industry advanced in
technical sophistication and efficiency tremendously in the last 50
years. Some of this advancement
came through the application of
research findings made possible by
grants from the U.S. Poultry & Egg
Association (USPOULTRY) and the
USPOULTRY Foundation.

funding. Funding approvals come
from the boards of USPOULTRY
and the foundation.  

Board Research Initiative
The BRI operates separately and
does not compete for funding or
resources with the CRP. It releases
special requests for proposals on
specific topics.
These topics are chosen by the
boards of directors of USPOULTRY
and the foundation. The BRI's request
for proposals are focused and specify
the questions and areas of focus
sought in the research. The boards
of USPOULTRY and the foundation
choose the topics for the BRI. ■
