The 2017 Midwest Poultry Federation (MPF) Convention will explore what the future has to offer the poultry and egg industries.

This year, the convention has expanded into more exhibit hall space, and speakers will include nationally recognized figures. Face-to-face networking opportunities offer the opportunity for attendees to meet with colleagues, customers and industry friends.

As the largest regional poultry convention in the U.S., MPF showcases all that the poultry industry has to offer at an affordable price for attendees. All revenue generated from the convention goes back to its members (comprised of 12 poultry associations in the Midwest) and to support poultry programs. The MPF Convention is a great place to learn about products, services and technologies that are vital to producers’ success.
