Published by Feeks Media LLC, Modern Poultry is an independent news website focused on live production. It covers everything from health, feed and nutrition to housing, welfare and food safety. 

While Modern Poultry primarily targets decision-makers in live production — veterinarians, nutritionists, production managers, welfare specialists and food safety experts — its editorial content also interests researchers, academicians, students and members of allied industry.

As you’ve probably noticed, Modern Poultry looks and feels different than other industry websites. The developers wanted to create a clean, calm, engaging, clutter-free, editorial environment that’s conducive to learning and sharing.

Toward this end, Modern Poultry recruits sponsors, not traditional advertisers, and asks them to provide practical, science-based content about their research, innovations, programs, products, technologies and ideas. All content must be focused on live-production tools and topics to be published on Modern Poultry.
