Poultry & Egg Development
MISSION STATEMENT: To develop education, promotion, and/or appropriate research programs to enhance Nebraska's egg and turkey producers in developing and maintaining a prosperous industry.
The division was created in 1976 to develop education, promotion and/or appropriate research programs to enhance Nebraska's egg and turkey producers in developing and maintaining prosperous industries. Targeted audiences include: consumers, foodservice personnel, health professionals, educators, youth, and media. The NDA administers the program with assistance of an advisory committee (duly elected officers of the Nebraska Poultry Industries, Inc.) that meets quarterly to address industry, program issues, and approve budgetary expenditures. Funding for the division's activities/expenses is generated by a fee of up to 5¢ per thirty dozen eggs sold, and a fee of up to 3¢ per turkey sold. The Nebraska Poultry and Egg Resources Act governs the mandatory checkoff and program activities related to this division. Board Members:
