USPOULTRY funding three research projects

North Carolina State University and Iowa State University will help advance the poultry industry.

 USPOULTRY and the USPOULTRY Foundation have recently greenlit approximately $363,000 in funding for three pioneering research projects at two esteemed institutions through the Board Research Initiative Program. Curated topics and proposals were meticulously selected by the USPOULTRY board of directors, with the Foundation Research Advisory Committee evaluating and recommending viable research ventures for funding.

The research grants, made possible in part by generous donations to the USPOULTRY Foundation from various poultry and egg entities, individuals and families, encompass vital areas of study crucial to the poultry industry's advancement.

  1. Necrotic Enteritis in Chickens: This research, conducted at North Carolina State University, aims to delve into the immunological basis of host immunity, fostering the development of effective non-antibiotic disease prevention strategies

  2. Cross-Sectional and Longitudinal Epidemiologic Investigations of Ornithobacterium rhinotracheale in Commercial Turkeys: Iowa State University will spearhead this project, investigating the epidemiology of Ornithobacterium rhinotracheale in commercial turkey populations

  3. Advancing Infectious Coryza Diagnosis and Control: This endeavor, also led by Iowa State University, seeks to uncover the attenuated pathogenicity and potential immunogenicity of non-pathogenic Avibacterium paragallinarum (npAP) isolates to enhance infectious coryza diagnosis and control

The USPOULTRY Board Research Initiative, established by the boards of USPOULTRY and the USPOULTRY Foundation, tackles pressing issues confronting the poultry industry. Operating alongside the Comprehensive Research Program, this initiative channels additional resources toward targeted research areas, augmenting the industry's progress.
