Chicken talk at

Science Pub June 4

James Hermes will discuss the history of the chicken industry in Oregon and the impacts of the shift to “free range” and other methods of producing eggs at the Corvallis Science Pub on June 4.

“The products of the egg industry are found in most home refrigerators and in many processed foods that most of us consume daily,” said Hermes, an associate professor in the Department of Animal and Rangeland Sciences at Oregon State University.

“Even though eggs are common, most consumers know little about how they are produced.”

Science Pub begins at 6 p.m. in the Old World Deli, 341 2n St. in Corvallis and is free and open to the public. Due its continuing popularity, attendance will be limited, and advance registration will be required.

Registration is available online or by calling (541) 737-4717. People who arrive without a ticket are welcome but will not be admitted to the reserved seating area until 6 p.m.

Podcasts of previous Corvallis Science Pub events on topics such as the roadside geology of Oregon, and the bond between people and dogs, are available at
