World Poultry - News: Promoting poultry industry growth in central north NSW

World Poultry - News: Promoting poultry industry growth in central north NSW: "Promoting poultry industry growth in central north NSW
//25 Oct 2010
In Australia, staff from the Poultry CRC joined a group of poultry growers and processors, NSW Farmers Association members, local council representatives and federal politicians to discuss the future of the poultry industry in the central north of NSW
The CRC was invited to attend to explain its nationally-based research programs, with a focus on environmental management. This opened the way for discussions on possible on-farm collaborations relating to odour and dust mitigation and spent-litter management.

According to Peter Pulley, from the NSW Poultry Meat Industry Committee, who chaired the meeting, the take-home message is brief and to the point, namely that the poultry industry is an enormous contributor to the local economy, currently employing over 1000 people, but that its future in the region is uncertain."
