In celebration of the 50th anniversary of Poultry International we looked at every issue of the magazine since 1962 to see how the worldwide poultry industry has changed, and how Poultry International has influenced – and been influenced by – those changes.

You can view this history on our interactive timeline. The timeline shows the history of Poultry International, as well as the history of the world, from 1962 to present day. Clicking on any year gives more details on that year, and clicking on the headlines downloads a full copy of the article in PDF format. 


We’ve added some high points of world history, details on the growth of the magazine and history of staffing changes in the online timeline as well. We hope you enjoy this trip through the history of Poultry International, which mirrors the international growth of and exciting changes in the poultry industry throughout the last 50 years.
