The U.S. poultry industry is the world's largest producer, its
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. With almost 18 percent of total poultry
