Publication: “Questions to Ask Before Signing a Poultry Contract”

In 1995, Mary Clouse, former poultry farmer and then Director of the RAFI-USA Poultry Project, authored the publication “Questions to Ask Before You Sign a Poultry Contract.”

Over the last 10 years the poultry industry has continued to grow and change. Mary Clouse’s original publication was revised and updated in 2005. While the questions are related to broiler contracts in general, most of the underlying issues raised are the same for pullet, egg, and turkey operations as well.
