Poultry house flooring company receives USDA grant
AviHome LLC awarded grant to show new flooring environmental technology
AviHome LLC was awarded a United States Department of Agricuture Natural Resources Conservation Service grant for commercial demonstration of its environmental technology to the poultry industry.
The USDA NRCS Conservation Innovation Grant Program will contribute 50% of the costs for the company's AviHome Flooring System project and will run for a total of three years with the cooperation of the University of Georgia, Perdue Farms and Fieldale Farms.
“These grants will help some of America’s top agricultural and conservation institutions, foundations and businesses develop unique approaches to enhancing and protecting natural resources on agricultural land,” says NRCS chief, Dave White.
After several years of research and development, AviHome says data indicates that AviHome Flooring System can reduce ammonia in poultry houses to near zero levels and significantly improve bird performance.
