US - The US Poultry & Egg Association (USPoultry) Board Research Initiative is requesting pre-proposals regarding research into the influence of transportation conditions on the welfare of poultry.
The objective of the research is to address two main issues, measuring the thermal well-being for poultry during transport and addressing how the conditions of transport affect these objective measures of thermal well-being.

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 program by focusing additional resources toward defined areas of research.
USPoultry and its Foundation operate a comprehensive research program 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.ThePoultrySite News Desk
