Moy Park to open 100th poultry house

Moy Park has announced it will open its 100th poultry house through its ‘Plan to Grow’ expansion programme.

The programme is part of the company’s overall business plan and it aims to open 250 more poultry houses by the end of 2015.

The 100th poultry house will be run by Moy Park grower Clive Marshall, on his Dungannon farm. “This is my first venture into poultry farming; I am currently a part-time beef farmer with my father. I’ve always had a keen interest in farming and wanted to expand the existing farm business. I felt this opportunity with Moy Park was the perfect first step in making farming a long-term career for me,” Marshall said.

Birds are expected to be housed on the farm by early next year.

David Gibson, Moy Park director of agriculture, commented: “We are delighted to have reached this fantastic milestone and the success of the ‘Plan to Grow’ programme has been highlighted through this build. We currently work with more than 600 of the very best local poultry farmers, who employ the highest standards on their farms, and we are very proud to be developing our farming base in Northern Ireland.”
