Organic Poultry

Pasture Raised Organic Poultry

Dr. Michael Lilburn’s NIFA/OREI-funded project will address the practicality and economics of this production system. Chickens will be raised under outdoor conditions and supplemented with organically grown naked oats to determine growth rates, health, and other production characteristics of this system. An economic analysis including facilities, feed, and labor will be performed.
