Seeking Participants for Pastured Broiler Cost of Production Study

Do you raise pastured broilers as a farm enterprise? Are you curious about your true costs of production and ways to improve efficiency? Want to know how your costs of production compare to farms across the state? Our team was just awarded a grant to look at just that!

We are currently seeking participants in Allegany, Cattaraugus, Chautauqua, Erie, and Steuben counties who grow slow growth or conventional broilers. Farmers will need to produce at least two batches of a minimum of 50 broilers annually over two consecutive years to be considered for the project. Farmers will be compensated for their time. We are looking for participants for 2022/2023 and 2023/2024.

If you're interested in learning more, reach out to Amy Barkley at amb544@cornell.edu or 716-640-0844.
