Sustainable Poultry Network: Slow Poultry – Sustainable Poultry Production

In this workshop you will learn about poultry history.  Learn about poultry that fed the mouths of our grandparents, great grandparents and forefathers.  How the poultry industry has drastically changed over the last seventy-five years!  Learn about industrialized poultry and the transition from traditional, slow growing poultry.  We will carefully study what sustainable poultry looks like; birds that can naturally reproduce, be genetically maintained, capable of enjoying outdoor pasture and grow at a normal, slow growth rate!  Slow growth means strong skeletal structure, normal organ development, more muscle and texture to the meat, more nutrient and genetic strength with strong immunities.  You will also get an overview of standard breeds from around the world.
