Saskatchewan Chicken Industry Development Fund

SCIDF (Saskatchewan Chicken Industry Development Fund) was created in 1999. The purpose of the fund is to develop the chicken industry through promotion and research. SCIDF is run by a separate committee of CFS members who determine where and to whom the funds should be allocated. To date the SCIDF committee has helped fund over 30 research projects, many of which are housed at the University of Saskatchewan, and donated to various non profit organizations throughout our province.
