The 42nd annual Midwest Poultry Federation Convention will be held March 12-14 at the Saint Paul RiverCentre in Saint Paul, Minn. The two exhibit halls and education workshops will run March 13-14.

About 40 speakers will cover a variety of topics for the turkey, egg layer, broiler and organic/specialty poultry industries. Midwest Poultry Federation is also excited to report the expansion of its second exhibit hall, which debuted in 2012. The hall, adjacent to the main exhibit hall, will include even more booths and opens the door for more companies to participate.

The convention kicks off on March 12 with a Pre-Show Nutrition and Poultry Health Symposium, which will be coordinated jointly by Midwest Poultry Federation and the North Central Avian Disease Conference, and the annual Midwest Poultry Federation Welcome Reception.


Also bringing attendees in early will be the North Central Avian Disease Conference and the third annual Organic Egg Farmers of America Symposium. Separate registration fees apply for these events.

New for 2013, the American Egg Board will hold a special speaker training for egg farmers.

Preregistration ends February 15 and is available online, or by mail or fax.
