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.

USPOULTRY's 360-Degree Virtual Reality Turkey Farm Video Tour

Visit a turkey farm without even stepping outside! The U.S. Poultry & Egg Association (USPOULTRY) recently released a 360° virtual reality video giving viewers an inside look at how turkeys are raised, and the careful measures farmers take as they grow. The virtual reality video allows a panoramic view of the farm by using arrows to look up, down, side-to-side, front and back from the original starting point. This is a great resource for the public to see just how turkey operations function and the meticulous care that goes into growing healthy birds.

While the video is playing, use your mouse to drag the video around while it’s playing!!

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.

RECIPE OF THE WEEK

Shakshuka

Shakshuka

New beginnings last week, turns into new adventures this week. We’re going to travel across the ocean to Tunisia in Northern Africa to try one of their staple dishes, Shakshuka. It’s a baked tomato based dish with an egg on top. It has become a popular dish in other countries around the Mediterranean Sea. Each country has a unique and flavorful spin on the dish and once you try it you’ll soon be doing your own spin on Skakshuka.
