The Prestage Department of Poultry Science (PDPS) at North Carolina State University is dedicated to support the poultry industry, consumers, and other stakeholders. Currently, the PDPS is the only program in the world with a "mini-integration" infrastructure that enables the training of students and the pursuit of research on all aspects of the modern commercial poultry production system. NC State’s PDPS is the only institution that has a Feed Mill Educational Unit, Poultry and Egg Processing Laboratories, Chicken Education Unit, Turkey Education Unit, Poultry Teaching Unit, and Animal and Poultry Waste Management Processing Facility. The PDPS mini-integration system has the unique ability to link issues in any area of the poultry industry to factors in other area(s) of the industry. This provides PDPS with the opportunity to evaluate industry relevant scenarios, collect integrated data, and provide real-world solutions.
