Webinar Set to Assist State’s Poultry Producers

East Franklin poultry house destroyed in the April storms.

Alabama’s poultry producers were the hardest hit of the state’s farmers by the violent outbreak of tornadoes in late April. The Alabama Department of Agriculture and Industries estimates that the storms killed more than 3.2 million chickens and destroyed more than 200 poultry houses. It is estimated that more than 500 additional poultry houses were damaged by the storms.

For many of these poultry farmers, information about available recovery resources is their most critical need. The Alabama Cooperative Extension System, partnering with a number of other organizations, will host a webinar to update producers on all of the resources that are available to them on Friday, May 20 from 10 a.m. until noon.
