Poultry Research Foundation

Operating since 1958
Providing an interface between the Australian poultry and allied industries, and the University of Sydney School of Veterinary Science.

Our aims

The Foundation sponsors industry related research, assists in the training of scientific personnel and acts in an industrial liaison capacity.

The Foundation's contribution to the development of the Australian poultry and stockfeeds industries has been achieved through research programs directed at achieving better understanding of the metabolism and nutritional requirements of poultry.

The Foundation has regularly hosted workshops, seminars and symposia. In 1989 the annual Foundation Symposium was to become the Australian Poultry Science Symposium through a joint collaboration with the Australian Branch of the World's Poultry Science Association.
