The International Poultry Expo, a component of the International Production & Processing Expo, is partnering with the University of Georgia to promote the International Poultry Short Course 2013 to be held February 1–5, 2013, in Athens, Ga. Registrants who sign up for the International Poultry Short Course will also receive registration to the 2013 International Poultry Expo, which will take place January 29–31, 2013, in Atlanta, Ga.

The International Poultry Course is a 3.5-day conference created by the Department of Poultry Science at the University of Georgia. It will cover a broad range of topics for individuals new to the poultry industry, as well as for experienced professionals. In addition to formal instruction, demonstrations in various areas of poultry science will be conducted at the university research facility in Athens. During this program, participants will have the opportunity to interact with experts in many areas. The course will be held in Athens immediately following the International Poultry Expo. 


Topics span from genetics and breeding to processing and food safety and will cover essentially all the important areas in between. This year’s program will focus on the challenges in producing and processing the modern broiler chicken.

Registration for the course is $795 and includes all luncheons, dinners and basic materials for the course. Space is limited, and registration closes on January 18, 2013.
