The U.S. Poultry & Egg Association (USPOULTRY) has released the Poultry & Egg Production Curriculum for use by high school agriculture educators.

The curriculum is part of the Association's student outreach program, which educates young people about the poultry industry. "Educating the next generation of consumers and encouraging bright young students to pursue higher education and careers in the poultry industry continue to be important goals of the U.S. Poultry & Egg Association," said Steve Willardsen, chairman of the USPOULTRY board of directors.


The program covers several industry topics, including an introduction to the poultry industry, a history of poultry production, lessons on broilers, turkeys and egg laying hens, biosecurity and egg processing.
