Committed to Promoting the Highest Standards of Animal Welfare

Aviagen Turkeys has a successful and well-established genetic selection program that promotes continuous improvements in robustness and overall health of our poultry, while providing our birds with the highest quality care and welfare standards. We continue to improve liveability and general health in our birds as we advance their performance in a responsible manner.

As a result of our extensive research and welfare programs, we further expand our knowledge and expertise of their feeding, nutritional, physical, and environmental needs and the effect these factors have on the overall good health of the birds. Aviagen Turkeys shares this expert knowledge and flock management practices with customers to promote the best health, welfare, and performance for all generations of Aviagen Turkeys stock.

Aviagen Turkeys educates and trains all our employees on proper care and handling procedures of birds. All employees and contract farmers involved with the handling of birds must comply with company policies and understand their responsibilities to ensure the welfare of the birds in their care. Aviagen Turkeys will not tolerate violations of our animal welfare policies or procedures.


Aviagen Turkeys is committed to developing products and adopting internal production practices that not only support cost-effective food production, but also supports social responsibility and environmental sustainability. Aviagen Turkeys is proud to be a leader in both new technologies and environmental stewardship. We will continue to supply the world with a valuable protein source while minimizing environmental impact and emphasizing conservation.
