Five poultry farm winners, two finalists honored at IPPE
January 26, 2016
U.S. Poultry & Egg Association (USPOULTRY) recognized five poultry farm winners and two finalists who received the annual Family Farm Environmental Excellence Award at the International Poultry Expo, part of the 2016 International Production & Processing Expo.
A study from the Coalition for a Sustainable Egg Supply resulted in showing several trade-offs among three types of laying hen housing systems: conventional cages, enriched cages and cage-free (aviary) systems.
Changes in modern broiler and hen production over the last 50 years have benefited the poultry meat industry economically but have also come with a trade-off in terms of the industry’s environmental footprint.
