Richard Blatchford, MA, PhD

Assistant Cooperative Extension Specialist, Small to Large Scale Poultry

My research focus is on the husbandry, behavior, and welfare of small to large scale poultry production. I am particularly interested in understanding the challenges facing small scale and backyard poultry flocks as well as the impacts of housing systems on poultry health and welfare on large scale facilities. I am also interested in developing on farm assessment tools for producers and auditors to monitor the health and welfare of poultry flocks.
