Achieving good bird performance in a modern poultry house requires a lot of electricity.

Register at to attend “Broiler house nighttime ventilation & LED Lighting,” a webinar sponsored by Chore-Time and presented by WATT Global Media. The webinar will be broadcast on Tuesday, June 23 at 10 a.m. Central. This is the first webinar in the Poultry Grower Webinar Series.

This webinar will discuss two ways that you can make sure that you are getting the most out of the electricity you pay for on your farm. Speakers will discuss how proper ventilation system management during the night can keep your birds eating, growing and converting even during the dog days of summer. LED lighting offers an energy saving alternative to incandescent bulbs, and the webinar will show what has been learned so far about LED lighting for poultry houses.

By attending this webinar, you will learn:


  • How nighttime ventilation can impact bird performance in hot weather
  • Tips for improving your birds’ hot weather performance
  • How LED lights perform in broiler houses

Speakers for this webinar will be Mike Czarick, agricultural engineer at the University of Georgia, and Dr. Brian Fairchild, poultry science professor at the University of Georgia.

Czarick is an agricultural engineer with 30 years of experience as an extension specialist at the University of Georgia. He specializes in poultry house environmental control and energy conservation. He is a highly sought-out speaker on poultry house ventilation because of his ability to help poultry growers make practical improvements that save energy and improve bird performance. Czarick received his training at the University of Georgia and holds master’s and bachelor’s degrees in agricultural engineering.

Fairchild is a poultry science professor and extension specialist at the University of Georgia who specializes in broiler management. He has conducted practical research in poultry house ventilation, energy conservation and lighting. He also has investigated the impact of air and water quality on bird performance. Fairchild was educated at North Carolina State University where he received bachelor’s degrees in animal and poultry science as well as a master’s and Ph.D. in physiology.
