The American Emu Association represents an alternative agriculture industry, dominated by the small farmer, who is devoted to humane and environmentally positive practices that will produce beneficial products for society. Emus are raised on feed formulated to optimize growth and in spacious pens providing ample room to grow. When the bird is processed, the layer of fat is removed and refined into a safe and stable oil, used in cosmetic and health products; the low-fat, mild flavored red meat is sold to health conscious consumers; the leather is crafted into beautiful goods. The American emu farmer is committed to sound farming practices, bringing the consumer quality products to enhance their lives.
