DPI Adopts Best Management Practices for Good Neighbor Relations

The Delmarva Poultry Industry, Inc. Board of Directors has adopted a revised version of its Best Management Practices for Good Neighbor Relations. This document replaces a version adopted by the DPI Board of Directors in 2005.  The board, consisting of chicken growers, representatives of the five chicken companies, and business suppliers of products and services, acted after a workgroup of growers, chicken company personnel, and others made a set of recommendations to update the 10-year old document.
