ATRP Advisory Board Reviews Research Progress


On April 17, ATRP held its annual Advisory Board Meeting. Project directors provided board members with an update on program research projects as well as technology transfer and outreach activities. A round-table session was also held where board members provided feedback and discussed future research opportunities, challenges, and directions with researchers. The annual meeting serves as the first step in ATRP’s efforts to identify and conduct research projects that best address priority industry needs. ATRP extends its appreciation to the Georgia Poultry Federation and the individual board members who give of their time and experience to help review and focus ATRP’s research program.
