Small Scale Free Range Poultry

The Small Scale Free Range Poultry Community of Practice (COP) was launched at PIX 2024! This initiative offers small-scale free-range poultry producers access to relevant, technically sound information. It supports producers through knowledge sharing, problem solving, and connecting them with the latest best practices.

What is the Small Scale Poultry Community of Practice (COP) About? SHARING.

The COP is about sharing knowledge and resources among small-scale free-range poultry producers. It addresses their needs by providing accurate information and connecting them with industry participants. This platform discusses best practices, emerging issues, and solutions, fostering community and collaboration.

By offering tailored information, the COP helps producers stay updated with current best practices, leading to better outcomes for all stakeholders. The COP believes in the power of community, emphasizing that “Together we can achieve more.”
