Phil Stayer, DVM, who was the top poultry veterinarian for nearly 22 years at what is now Wayne-Sanderson Farms, Inc., recently formed his own consultancy, Dr. Phil Stayer Poultry Consulting, LLC.

“I want to continue doing what I do best — assist commercial broiler producers and their suppliers by solving current problems or introducing new technologies to improve chicken well-being,” Stayer said.

Prior to Sanderson Farms’ merger with Wayne Farms in 2022, Stayer managed 11 broiler locations in Georgia, Mississippi, North Carolina and Texas that produced more than 13 million birds a week. His primary responsibility was working with live-production managers, nutritionists, suppliers and diagnostic laboratories to build comprehensive health programs.

“Ensuring animal well-being and consumer food safety were also important elements of our health programs,” he added.

Stayer frequently shared his field experiences at scientific conferences, as well as in articles and video interviews for the trade media.

Earlier in his career, Stayer was a veterinary technical consultant for Elanco Animal Health and a staff veterinarian for Arbor Acres. He received his Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree from the University of Tennessee and a Master of Science degree at Mississippi State University.
