The U.S. Poultry & Egg Assn. (USPOULTRY) Board Research Initiative is requesting pre-proposals regarding research investigating the influence of transportation conditions on poultry. The objective of the research is to address two main issues: (1) measuring the thermal well-being for poultry during transport and (2) addressing how the conditions of transport affect these objective measures of thermal well-being.
The USPOULTRY Board Research Initiative was created by the boards of USPOULTRY and the USPOULTRY Foundation to address current issues facing the poultry industry. The USPOULTRY Board Research Initiative operates alongside the current USPOULTRY research program and augments the great success of the existing program by focusing additional resources toward defined areas of research.
