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 programme and augments the great success of the existing programme by focusing additional resources toward defined areas of research.

USPoultry and its Foundation operate a comprehensive research programme incorporating all phases of poultry and egg production and processing. Since the inception of the research programme, USPoultry has reinvested more than $24 million dollars into the industry in the form of research grants, with the International Poultry Expo as the primary source for the funding. More than 50 universities and federal and state facilities have received grants over the years.
