Hurricane background with text Hurricane Preparation and Recovery for North Carolina Poultry Producers Guide

Hurricane season officially started on June 1. Experts are predicting an active season, so preparation is essential.

To help poultry producers, Poultry Extension Area Specialized Agents Richard Goforth, Lauren Greene and Margaret Ross collaborated with the Southeast Climate Hub (part of the U.S. Department of Agriculture) to create the Hurricane Preparation and Recovery for North Carolina: Poultry Producers Guide.

The guide includes four (4) major sections, an introduction and an appendix of resources. The guide sections are

  • Building a Resilient Operation,
  • Long-Term Operation Maintenance,
  • Short-Term Preparedness, and
  • Post-Hurricane Recovery.

If you have questions about the Poultry Producers Guide from the Southeast Climate Hub, please contact Richard Goforth, Lauren Greene, or Margaret Ross.

There are guides for many commodities grown and raised in North Carolina. See all the Hurricane Preparation and Recovery Guides for North Carolina Producers.
