April 2016: Agri-business

Big business in high-quality ag products

Jay Matteson

Jay Matteson

The north country is very fortunate to be home to some of the highest quality agricultural products and businesses. Recently, one of our newest agricultural businesses, Aviagen, was recognized for its excellence as a global poultry genetics company. Aviagen begins operation this spring in the Jefferson County Industrial Park. It purchased the former Morris Northstar Hatchery that operated successfully for several years. Morris Northstar hatched approximately 300,000 chicks a week for export to broiler chicken farms in Canada. Aviagen indicates it is a higher-end hatchery. It will hatch out chicks that instead of growing directly into meat chickens will be used as parent stock to meet other poultry company demands. Aviagen provides the parents for many different poultry operations around the world. Officials indicate many of the chicks born in Jefferson County will be exported around the world. Aviagen is noted as one of the world’s leading poultry genetics companies. [Read more…]

CONSTRUCTION

NNY Builders Exchange recognizes local A&E firm

Aubertine and Currier Architects, Engineers, & Land Surveyors, Watertown, recently received the Excellence in Craftsmanship award from the Northern New York Builders Exchange for its work on phase two of the Clayton Riverwalk project. The Watertown firm was responsible for the design, construction administration and inspection for the project.

This portion of the Riverwalk picks up where the previous portion left off at the Frink Park Pavilion. The goal of the project was to create an uninterrupted visual and physical connection to the St. Lawrence River for pedestrians walking between the village’s existing commuter docks and the recently completed Frink Park Pavilion and Thousand Islands Regional Docks.

Despite a few challenges, experts say the region is on pace for a positive year in 2016. Six sectors of the north country’s economy are ripe with opportunities for growth.

By Karee Magee, NNY Business
