Just to be clear, I just run the building and keep the birds alive, i don't 
decide what gets studied.  We are working on substituting anti bodies for 
anti biotics in meat chicken production.  I think the method we are 
developing could be used in any system and I am advocating we look at ways 
to simplify our methods for use in less developed countrys etc.  We are 
also supporting other groups around campus, including a plan to hatch some 
eggs from Spain in order to evaluate a continental meat breed in a pasture 
system.  This is for the Center for Integrated Ag Systems here on 
campus.  This is really UWs center for organic and sustainable ag.  I may 
get one of our guys looking at lipid oxidation (rancidity)  in meat from 
birds fed biologically grown feed vs. conventional, we'll see where that 
goes.  Be nice to do more of course; may look for such gigs of I decide to 
flee my increasingly insane nation, but I have yet to give up to the 
bastards...stay tuned....
