USPOULTRY Releases New Video Series Highlighting Poultry and Egg Farm Environmental Stewardship

U.S. Poultry & Egg Association (USPOULTRY) is releasing a new video series highlighting environmental stewardship on poultry and egg farms. The second video in the series features one of USPOULTRY's Family Farm Environmental Excellence Award winners, Cooley Farms, in Roberta, Ga.

Cooley Farms, owned and operated by Larry and Leighton Cooley, has more than 1,050 acres of land on which chickens and cattle are raised and hay is grown. The farm began operating in 1985 on 70 acres of land with two broiler houses. Over the years, the farm operation grew and evolved, specifically in the area of chicken production. Today, Cooley Farms raises approximately 500,000 chickens per flock on behalf of Perdue Farms, which equates to three million chickens per year in their 18 poultry houses. Litter management is an important part of farm management for the Cooley's. The farm uses detailed record-keeping to implement precise nutrient management plans. The litter is applied to the land and hay fields at rates needed to maintain appropriate nutrient levels in the soil, and the remainder is sold to other farms.

USPOULTRY Releases Video on Current and Future Antibiotic Use in the Poultry Industry

Antibiotic use in poultry production has been very beneficial in enhancing bird health. To help provide insight into the current and future use of antibiotics in poultry, U.S. Poultry & Egg Association (USPOULTRY) is releasing a new video. The video features two noted experts, Dr. Randy Singer, professor of Epidemiology, Department of Veterinary and Biomedical Medicine, University of Minnesota, and Dr. Charles Hofacre, professor, Poultry Diagnostic and Research Center, Department of Population Health, University of Georgia.

Dr. Singer and Dr. Hofacre provide information on why antibiotics are given to poultry, how antibiotics are provided, how the decision is made to treat with antibiotics, how antibiotic use in poultry affects antibiotic resistance in foodborne pathogens, how flocks raised without antibiotics are treated if they get sick, the difference between medically and non-medically important antibiotics, and the future changes for antibiotic usage in poultry production.
