College Scholarship Golf Tournament
DPI provides scholarships of $1,500 and up to college and graduate students with majors related to the chicken industry. The scholarships are supported by our College Scholarship Golf Tournament, coming up on June 6, 2018.
Vegetative Environmental Buffers
Planting trees around chicken houses has both air quality and
water quality benefits. Properly designed buffers with farm
specific plants, either trees or grasses, help capture air
emissions from chicken houses and absorb nutrients. DPI is
leading the way in helping farmers get grants for buffers and giving
technical assistance in installing them.
We know our way around a kitchen here at
DPI, and over the years, we've collected some
great-tasting recipes that make chicken a focus.
If your business is linked even in part to the
chicken industry, please consider becoming a
member of DPI. We work tirelessly on behalf
of the entire industry. Help us ensure that an
industry you count on will continue to thrive.
