POULTRY.NETWORK and Alltech have teamed up to highlight bright new entrants representing the next generation of broiler and egg farmers.
Our new video series will feature poultry producers blazing a trail in their business, combining high welfare, strong production performance and innovation.
Our first poultry profile is Henry Gibbs, a newcomer to free-range egg production who set up his new unit to diversify his family farm business.
Our second Poultry Prospect is Ivory Arden, who has always had a passion for poultry and an eagerness for enterprise, from rearing rare breeds in her garden to rearing over 4,000 partridges for the local shoot.
It was in 2015 when Ivory hit 18 years of age, that the Lincolnshire arable farm where Ivory was raised, diversified to financially accommodate Ivory’s desire to join the business.
And today, Ivory at the age of 24, single-handedly manages 128,000 birds, 4 units, and 10 part-time staff.
