Georgia’s Poultry Industry and Its Impact on the Local Economy and Global Trade

The following paper describes and contextualizes the state of Georgia’s poultry industry and its impact on the local economy and global trade. As consumer and industry demand for poultry continue to rise, Georgia emerges as the top producer of poultry in the USA. Historically and economically important to the Peach State and the world, this paper touches trends in Georgia's broiler industry, Georgia’s role in the global broiler market, factors affecting Georgia broiler exports, and implications for Georgia’s agricultural sector and state economy. Today, being a poultry farmer in Georgia means more than serving the family, county, or state—it means serving the nation and the world.
