Perdue Farms Awards $12,026 to Houston County Fire Department in Georgia
Perdue Farms, through its Franklin P. and Arthur W. Perdue Foundation, has awarded a $12,026 grant to Houston County Fire Department in central Georgia to replace two inoperable thermal imaging cameras. “Each of our fire trucks carries one camera and we have been able to replace two of these over the previous year. However, the remaining six cameras are still in need of replacement,” said Christopher Stoner, Houston County Fire Department chief.

Study Insights Could Help Breed Chickens Resistant to Campylobacter

The study, led by a team from the Roslin institute, has identified a large number of genes in chicken guts that may determine whether the birds are resistant to Campylobacter. The insights could inform research towards breeding chickens that are less likely to carry Campylobacter bacteria, and so limit the risk to poultry consumers.
