The poultry houses at the Hill Farm are designed to provide the poultry growers of Louisiana evaluations of the latest innovations in equipment and management techniques for raising broilers under commercial conditions.

Through a cooperative agreement with poultry industry leaders, LSU AgCenter poultry researchers, poultry producers, members of the Louisiana Farm Bureau, and the Louisiana Department of Agriculture and Forestry, demonstration poultry houses were constructed at the Hill Farm beginning in 2005.

Members of these organizations formed a poultry house steering committee to recommend demonstrations to be conducted in these houses. A variety of donors provided funding for the houses, and the poultry industry provided the equipment.
