During March the industry was privileged to receive updates on research at the Midwest Poultry Association Convention and the Western Poultry Disease Conference.

Over the past five decades the U.S. Poultry & Egg Association, formerly the Southeastern Poultry and Egg Association, has contributed to the growth and well-being of the industry through educational programs and presenting the annual International Poultry Exposition in Atlanta. Your editor is old enough to still refer to the January "show" in Atlanta as the "Southeastern" having also attended the "Fact-Finding" meetings arranged by the old SEPEA.

This month the new president of USPOULTRY, John Starkey, shares his views on the current state of the industry and our future.

We trust that our reports and reviews are helpful in discerning trends and planning for the future.
