Established in 2007, the Auburn University NPTC started out researching simple ways to help poultry growers save money and increase profitability. For instance, the center found that growers could cut heating costs by about 15 percent just by recirculating air inside poultry houses to improve the efficiency of the heating system and keep birds more comfortable. Now the NPTC is helping this vital Alabama industry save about $34 million a year through its research and outreach efforts aimed at increasing the efficiency of poultry production facilities.
