Auburn to open newest addition to poultry research complex

Auburn University in Alabama announced that its new Charles C. Miller Poultry Research & Education Center will open its newest facility, an administration and classroom building, April 10.

Current and planned Miller Center facilities and technologies reflect every detail of the U.S. poultry industry — from hatching to housing to processing and beyond — to offer a comprehensive lab environment for university students and research faculty as well as industry professionals across the nation, Auburn said.

Research at the 30-acre, multi-facility complex will target key issues of efficiency and sustainability in poultry production, avian health and well-being and food safety and quality.

“The poultry industry is the largest and fastest-growing food industry in the country,” said Paul Patterson, dean of the Auburn College of Agriculture. “As this industry grows, we need solid, reliable research and training to ensure the level of quality, safety and efficiency that consumers and businesses deserve. We are proud to offer the nation’s leading poultry scientists and professionals the very best in research and teaching facilities at the Miller Center.”

The Miller Center broke ground in 2016 with the construction of two nutrition and poultry management research facilities as well as an equipment testing and demonstration facility, which houses the National Poultry Technology Center. The site of the Miller Center was already home to a feed mill and animal and poultry nutrition center, built in 2012.

Auburn is also preparing to break ground on the Miller Center’s next facility, a state-of-the-art processing plant, which will serve as a stage for developing new, improved methods of controlling foodborne pathogens and advancing the use of data-driven poultry processing technology, the university said.
