  The Center for Small Flock Research and Innovation

The Center for Small Flock Research and Innovation (CSFRI) a source of information for small flock producers.  We provide timely information on upcoming events of interest to small flock holders as well as special interest fact sheets.  As research related to keeping small flocks becomes available, the information will be published on this website.  

CSFRI will help small flock and niche market poultry producers by performing research on their specific production techniques, management methods, and biosecurity modifications.

As the nation's first and the only research center of its kind, CSFRI will provide unique educational and research opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students.
