Whether these family-owned farms are large or small scale operations, food safety and animal care are top priorities of our farmers. They care about the quality and safety of the products that feed their own families, their local communities, and communities across the country. Our eggs and poultry products are safe, economical, and wholesome sources of protein.

INDIANA'S FREE FLOCK HEALTH TEST PROGRAM

ISPA offers a FREE flock evaluation program.  The voluntary testing program, referred to as Indiana's Test Twelve (T-12) Program, monitors Avian Influenza through a simple antibody test from your hens' eggs.  The T-12 test is specifically designed for chickens, not other types of poultry.  Results may aid is assessing the health status of the birds, but should not be used as a diagnostic test.  To participate fill out the online form below.  When you receive the kit, collect 12 eggs and return them to the ISPA in our postage paid package.  Please note, this is a monitoring test only, the results are for the poultry owners benefit and cannot be used to certify egg quality or as a replacement to poultry health papers.  Due to the nature of the T-12 test, the ISPA cannot predict a specific date for the results.
