The article reports that Georgia Poultry Federation has teamed up with the University of Georgia, Athens, Georgia to launch a new Web site designed to help move poultry litter. The Georgia Poultry Federation Litter Market will allow poultry growers with litter to post ads that potential buyers can view. Farmers and others who want to buy litter for its nutrients may also post ads. So can anyone else who provides services such as poultry house clean-out or litter hauling or spreading. The service is free. Poultry growers, brokers and buyers can post ads telling the services they need or the amount and location of litter they have or want. Visitors can browse the ads or conduct searches based on location or other factors.
