WASHINGTON - The USDA is proposing to amend the National Poultry Improvement Plan and its auxiliary provisions by providing new or modified sampling and testing procedures for Plan participants

The proposed changes were voted on and approved by the voting delegates at the National Poultry Improvement Plan’s 2002 National Plan Conference. These changes would keep the provisions of the Plan current with changes in the poultry industry and provide for the use of new sampling and testing procedures.
