Charles C. Miller Jr. Poultry Research and Education Center
NORTH AUBURN CAMPUS
hough Auburn already has an internationally recognized Department of Poultry Science, we are building a new comprehensive “farm”, the Charles C. Miller, Jr. Poultry Research and Education Center that will significantly advance the university’s standing as a global leader in poultry research, instruction and outreach. This new Center will allow the Department to realize its vision of becoming the premiere poultry education and research program and will allow us to combine facilities in a systems approach to support our unique “farm-to-fork” philosophy.
The new Center is located on a 30 acre site at North Auburn. At present, approximately 40%of the envisioned buildings of the Miller center have been completed and we will begin on the remaining buildings such as hatchery, processing plant, teaching labs, etc. needed to achieve the complete Center. New buildings will progressively be constructed as funding is obtained. The Miller Center ultimately will replace the existing poultry farm that was built over 40 years ago.
As of August 2017, the Miller consists of the following facilities:
- Poultry and Animal Nutrition Center-Alabama Poultry and Egg Association Feed Mill
- The National Poultry Technology Center’s Testing Facility
- Replicated Pen Facilities for Poultry Nutrition and Management Related Research
- Administration and Education Building (under construction)
