Poultry Industry Perspective
Abstract:As liaison for the Poultry Water Quality Consortium (PWQC), I have a tremendous challenge in working with diverse groups, often with different opinions to problems and solutions. The PWQC was organized in 1991 at the request of the poultry industry. The goal is to work closely with government agencies to promote better environmental management by the rapidly growing poultry industry. The Consortium is responding to this environmental challenge by seeking to promote cooperation and the exchange of information between the poultry industry and government agencies on water quality and byproduct utilization issues. Members of the PWQC are: U.S. Poultry & Egg Association, USDA-Natural Natural Resources Conservation Service, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and Tennessee Valley Authority. The Consortium is dedicated to protecting our natural resources by promoting good environmental management.
