ATRP provides no-cost technical assistance to Georgia-based firms and individuals in the poultry industry. These assists range from simple inquiries regarding information or help needed to address a problem to extensive on-site consultations in which researchers collect data and provide a report on their findings and recommendations. In-plant energy usage/cost assessments and workplace safety evaluations are also offered.
Last year, ATRP provided 31 tech assists in 17 cities around the state. The tech assists covered several areas, including automation, environmental management, food safety, worker safety, and information technology. The program uses input from all assists to gauge situations calling for new research initiatives.
To inquire about the program or to schedule an assist, call ATRP Program Manager Doug Britton at (404) 407-8829 or email him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
