Sustainable Poultry Network National Conference

Sustainable Poultry Network 

Dear Poultry Enthusiasts! It is with great excitement that I am inviting you to the 2015 Sustainable Poultry Network–USA National Conference! I believe this conference will be the most complete, comprehensive conference for sustainable poultry production in North America. This conference features some of the very best instructors to teach on the current critical subjects of sustainable poultry production.

Within the last few days we have finalized our elective topics for our two day conference. There will be eighteen different sessions presented by some of the leading poultry experts in the country. Click here to check out these exciting sustainable poultry education electives on our website.

The SPN-USA National Conference includes:

• Conference Training Sessions
• On-Farm Coaching
• Complete Training Manual*
• Several Poultry Resources/Books from Sessions*
• MEALS for both days
• Tuesday Night Heritage Poultry Dinner

The on-farm training will include, egg candling, toe punching with day old chicks for breeder identification and “breeder selection” with various breeds of live birds. During the two-day conference, you will have the opportunity to network with like-minded farmers from all over the United States.

The 2015 Sustainable Poultry Network–USA National Conference will be in two locations, Wilmot, Ohio and Petaluma, California. I guarantee you, it will change how you view your poultry.
