Alberta’s poultry industry has taken a lead in developing a comprehensive Emergency Response Plan. Each registered chicken Producer in Alberta has a copy of the Plan, and the plan is tested through Table-Top exercises annually.
Biosecurity is a mandatory component of the On-Farm Food Safety program, and best-practices are incorporated into our Producer Emergency Preparedness Plan.
Commitment to Research
The Alberta chicken industry is strongly committed to Research. We support, in cooperation with the other feather Boards, the infrastructure of the Poultry Research Centre. Alberta Chicken Producers have contributed $900,000 towards the ‘capital fund’ for the Alberta Chicken Producers Poultry Technology Centre building located at the University of Alberta. In addition, Alberta Chicken Producers annually budgets $125,000 to be allocated to the Poultry Research Centre and research projects at the Funding Consortium table.
