NutriQuest has partnered with Southern Poultry Research Group to open a state-of-the-art poultry research center in Nicholson, Ga., just outside of Atlanta. The NutriQuest Poultry Research Center is a part of a long-term research agreement with Southern Poultry Research Group, Inc., owned and operated by Drs. Charles and Christa Hofacre. In addition, the research group has a strong collaborative relationship with Dr. Gregory Mathis, owner and operator of Southern Poultry Research, Inc.

“We are fortunate to partner with world-renowned veterinarian and researcher, Dr. Charles Hofacre, to provide research that delivers innovative solutions that provide a consistent, reliable result," said Dr. Ken Purser, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at NutriQuest. The new research center will accommodate all aspects of broiler research and includes 120 floor pens that will house up to 3,000 broilers at a time.

According to Dr. Chet Wiernuz, Director of Poultry Technology at NutriQuest, “The new facility was designed specifically for research and will provide NutriQuest with an industry-leading dedicated broiler research capability. Several studies will be conducted annually focusing on feed- and water-delivered solutions to improve health and performance.”
