In this edition of the SMART Farmer podcast we head south to learn a little bit about poultry production and how it has gotten smarter, more efficient and more sustainable over the years.
Monty Henderson started as a broiler service manager with Tyson Foods and later with Campbell Soup Company. He has served as president of Pilgrim’s Pride Corporation and president and CEO of George’s, Inc. He has also served as a past chairman for U.S. Poultry and Egg Association, has served on the Board of Directors for the National Chicken Council and as a director of the American Egg Board, and now represents the poultry industry on the board of the U.S. Farmers and Ranchers Alliance.
Henderson shares how smart technology helps producers keep birds at their optimum comfort level and how breeding and genetics have helped the industry go from taking nine weeks to grow a chicken to 3.5 pounds to today taking only 35 days to reach the same weight: SMART Farmer Podcast with Monty Henderson, USPOULTRY
