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.
