UMN Poultry team supports $26 billion state industry

The U.S. Poultry & Egg Association (USPOULTRY), National Chicken Council, National Turkey Federation and United Egg Producers have made available an updated economic impact study that highlights the positive impact the poultry industry has on jobs, wages and federal and state revenue in the United States.

The University of Minnesota poultry researchers and Extension team are proud to support Minnesota's $26 billion poultry industry.  Cutting edge research in avian influenza, DNA sequencing, alternatives to antibiotics, biosecurity, poultry health and nutrition are only a few of the topics that researchers at the University of Minnesota are currently investigating and providing educational programming.

Minnesota companies that produce and process poultry and eggs are an integral part of the state's economy.  Poultry producers along with the companies that provide supplies and materials to the industry provide well-paying jobs in the state and pay significant amounts in taxes to the state and local ($845.02 million) and federal ($1.74 billion) governments."
