New Video Series Explains Commercial Poultry Production

10 February 2014

US - The US Poultry and Egg Association (USPoultry) has released a series of videos on Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations (CAFOs) in the poultry industry.

To help provide answers as to why Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations (CAFOs) are an important part of the poultry industry, USPoultry has created a series of six short videos. The series is called Poultry Insight , and the videos are a discussion with Paul Bredwell, vice president of environmental programs for USPoultry.

The video series explains what a CAFO is, who owns CAFOs, potential impact of CAFOs on the environment, how producers manage their operations to avoid adverse environmental impacts, the benefits of CAFOs, and who regulates CAFOs.

"USPoultry and our members recognise consumers have questions about Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations, or CAFOs. This series of videos is designed to provide a general overview about CAFOs in the poultry industry, and we welcome any feedback from consumers who have additional questions," remarked USPoultry president, John Starkey.

“It is through funds generated by the International Poultry Expo (IPE) that USPoultry is able to create educational information of this type. This video series is only one example of the IPE funds that have been funneled back into the industry over the years. We sincerely appreciate the support of our members and exhibitors that has allowed USPoultry to create and distribute this information,” said James Adams, Wenger Feeds, Rheems, Pennsylvania, and USPoultry chairman.

The videos can be viewed on USPoultry’s web site, They can also be viewed on YouTube by clicking here.
