    Organic Broiler Chicken Production Trial–Allee Farm

    Authors: ,

Abstract

The Iowa State University Allee Farm is classified as a small conventional grain and livestock operation. Decreasing profit margins for smaller farms have led the Allee Farm into sustainable diversified niche market demonstrations. Five acres of corn were certified organic in 1999 by the Organic Crop Improvement Association. A specialized livestock marketing plan was implemented in June 2000. As a means of adding value to the organic grain, direct market organic broiler chickens were raised. This demonstration will provide knowledge of an integrated farm organic system from a commodity crop to the consumer’s plate.
