Environmental Programs

The goal of the U.S. Poultry & Egg Association's Environmental Program is to serve as the industry resource for environmental concerns. We keep poultry leaders abreast of the latest federal regulations and provide technical expertise to help maintain and grow a healthy food supply.

USPOULTRY's Family Farm Environmental Excellence Award

The Family Farm Environmental Excellence Award recognizes exemplary environmental stewardship by family farmers engaged in poultry and egg production. The award program is open to family-owned poultry growers or egg producers who supply a product to a USPOULTRY member or an independent producer who is a USPOULTRY member.

Awards are presented once each year. Typically one award is given to a family farm from each geographic region in the United States.
