Poultry demonstration houses open at Hill Farm

chicks
The poultry is Louisiana’s leading animal enterprise. More than 2,000 broiler houses operate in 11 north Louisiana parishes, and more than 800 million pounds of broiler meat are produced annually. Two poultry demonstration houses at the Hill Farm Research Station house 21,400 birds each. With alternative heating and energy savings as big concerns among Louisiana poultry growers, one house is equipped with radiant tube heating, and the other is heated by standard radiant brooders. The LSU AgCenter will compare the equipment for efficiency and economy.
