Today, poultry continues to be a large part of South Carolina agriculture. Broilers, turkeys, and chicken eggs consistantly rank in the top ten commodities for cash receipts.
Clemson's Livestock-Poultry Health (LPH) serves as South Carolina's animal health authority, state meat and poultry inspection department, and the state's veterinary diagnostic center. LPH's role is to protect animal health through control of endemic, foreign, and emerging diseases in livestock and poultry and to protect the health of S.C. consumers by providing a comprehensive inspection service to ensure that meat and poultry products are safe, wholesome and accurately labeled.
