March 19th is National Poultry Day! It’s a day when we recognize some of our feathered friends that are raised for their meat and eggs, such as chickens, turkeys, ducks, geese, quail, pigeons, guineas, and pheasants.
According to the USDA, “The U.S. poultry industry is the world’s largest producer and second largest exporter of poultry meat and a major egg producer. U.S. consumption of poultry meat (broilers, other chicken, and turkey) is considerably higher than beef or pork, but less than total red meat consumption.”
National Band & Tag manufacturers a variety of products for poultry identification such as wing bands, leg bands, clip-on blinders, and more. These products are used by a variety of customers in the poultry industry that ranges from genetic research to small farms to universities and backyard farmers.
