Poultry Digest

Poultry Digest (est.1985) is an independent bi-monthly trade publication delivering industry news to the layer (egg) and broiler chicken meat industries primarily within Australia and New Zealand . 

Published by Primary Media, a private family-owned company, Poultry Digest has no formal links with industry organisations or supplier entities. 

We also publish reports on other commercial poultry species including duck, turkey and quail.

The magazine covers new technologies and scientific advances that contribute to increasing productivity and reducing production costs.

Typical issues of interest to our wide reader base, apart from profitability, are food safety, consumer perceptions, biosecurity, energy costs and most recently carbon emission reduction all while achieving a  balance between avoiding shortage of supply without tipping into overproduction. 

The publication was print and mail out only until the early 2000s when a digital version was offered as an addition to the printed Poultry Digest. 

The print version is available as a paid subscription product, whilst the digital version is free on-line from this website. 

Our subscription paid print circulation is around 1500 copies per issue, and our electronic version has a growing circulation.

We publish 6 issues (and a yearbook industry directory) a year and approximately 15% of the circulation goes to New Zealand and other overseas destinations.

Issue dates are December/January (plus Poultry Industry Yearbook) February/March, April/May, June/July, August/September, and October/November.

Deadlines for advertising bookings and editorial are 1st of the month (or closest working day) of the second month of issue date, so for June/July 2024, 1 July 2024.
