A total of 34 exhibiting companies were honored for their long-time commitment to the Midwest Poultry Federation (MPF) Convention.

The companies received a special Longevity Award during a brand-new event, MPF Unhatched – An Evening of Eats and Entertainment - held at the 47th Annual MPF Convention, March 15, in Minneapolis, Minn.

“It is gratifying to see the incredible support the Midwest Poultry Federation receives from our exhibitors – including some companies that have been with us from the very beginning,” said outgoing MPF President Bruce Eastlund of ILC Resources. “Year in and year out, our attendees are treated to an excellent trade show experience because of the high caliber of our exhibitors.”


The companies that have exhibited 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40, or 45 consecutive years at MPF are featured on the next page of this release.

The Midwest Poultry Federation (MPF) Convention ended its first year back at the Minneapolis Convention Center with 609 booths in two exhibit halls, jam-packed education sessions, and registration over the 3,400 mark – an increase over last year’s attendance and the largest registration number MPF has seen in well over 20 years.

The 48th annual Midwest Poultry Federation (MPF) Convention will be held March 12-14, 2019 at the Minneapolis Convention Center in downtown Minneapolis, Minn. Further details on the 2019 show will be available later this year. For more information, visit MPF’s Web site, www.midwestpoultry.com.
