MPF Announces Virtual Education Program for August 12-13


Additional Topics/Speakers Added to Already Robust Schedule

The Midwest Poultry Federation is excited to announce its full education program, for the MPF Virtual Trade Show and Convention on August 12 – 13. Here’s what attendees can expect:

  • Two full days of education programming – over 16 hours! –  from industry experts with new topics and speakers added, thanks to the flexibility of going virtual.
  • Tracks for turkeys, egg layers/pullets, broilers, and processing will continue – along with hot production topics and (NEW!) lunchtime learning sessions for all birds plus a full slate of “Vendor Featured Content” (also NEW!) from our exhibitors and sponsors
  • Several live Q&A chats will be scheduled so attendees can get all your burning questions answered in real-time!

“We’re very excited that the majority of our speakers who had committed to our March convention are more than willing to step up and share their expertise virtually,” said MPF Education Co-Chair Dr. Ken Koelkebeck of the University of Illinois. “And the new sessions we added will really complement the full slate of topics already on the schedule.”

Attendees can view the MPF Virtual Education Program (and any future updates to the schedule) here:

Thanks to MPF’s Diamond sponsors — Best Veterinary Solution, Farm Credit Services of America, Georgia Poultry Equipment, and MWI Animal Health — all education sessions will be available “on-demand” through August 31. Attendees can watch and learn at your own pace!
