Global Animal Partnership (GAP) announces Broiler Chicken Breeds based on University of Guelph Study
The University of Guelph hosted the largest multidisciplinary broiler chicken study to date, including over 7,500 broiler chickens from 16 different genetic strains. The study included research measures across the following areas: behavior, physiology, immunology, production, and meat quality. Global Animal Partnership has used the data from the study to develop a full protocol and compiled a list of breeds from the study which meet the requirements. GAP notes that its list is not meant to be exhaustive and invites all broiler chicken breeding companies to test any breeds they believe will meet the new GAP requirements.
