broiler houses(1)

On September 20, 2002, the Stephen F. Austin State University Broiler Research Center was opened and dedicated to researching new and current aspects of production for the commercial poultry industry. The Broiler Research Center consists of four solid-sidewall, tunnel-ventilated broiler houses. This farm produces 110,400 commercial broiler chickens in seven weeks.

This research facility was funded through the generous donations of Pilgrim's Pride, Tyson Foods, Sanderson Farms, and other anonymous donors. The revenue generated by the Broiler Research Center is used to sustain the operation, as well as, provides numerous scholarships to our poultry science students. 

Through the operation of the Broiler Research Center, the SFA Poultry Science Program continues to work closely with the poultry industry to discover, evaluate and interpret better methods of poultry production.
