leader in the poultry industry. Poultry is the largest segment of Georgia
agriculture and agribusiness. Chickens are the largest single agricultural commodity
in the state, producing over $2.4 billion in farm income annually. The poultry
industry is responsible for significant economic benefits for countless Georgians through
farm income, processing and allied industries, and meetings and conventions.
Each year Georgia serves as a host to the
International Poultry Trade Show, the largest poultry convention in the world.
