Poultry School Helps Keep Flocks Healthy
Besides learning from veterinarians, professors and other poultry professionals, participants share experiences outside of classes, says Hannah Halldorson, communications director with the Minnesota Turkey Growers Association, the organization that manages the annual school.
“This year’s theme is disease and diagnostics and learning how to manage them,” she says, adding that growers are always interested in fine-tuning tips about better biosecurity management.
“A new add-on is roundtable discussions with representatives from vaccine companies talking to participants,” she says.
The school is divided into two sessions. May 16-17 covers the production of turkeys and broilers. May 18-19 focuses on egg layers. Each session is limited to 70 participants. Tuition is $300 and participants can book reservations at the Union Club Hotel on Purdue’s campus.
The school’s planning team includes experts from Purdue University, Michigan State University, Iowa State University, University of Minnesota, Western University of Health Sciences and Lapama’a Farms.
Sign up for the school is in progress on the website.
