Turkey Grow-out Facility

Long tan building with dark roof and air handlers under cloudy sky. Green grass foreground.

Along with the Broiler Grow-out Facility, this small-scale research space will help grow the state’s poultry industries, which bring in more than $1 billion in cash receipts annually. The new facilities on Glade Road include pens, work areas, and feed storage. The two facilities total 22,700 square feet and are valued at more than $5 million. Creating cutting-edge information that supports and grows this economic engine for the commonwealth is one of the unit’s goals.
