Three poultry workers from Lincolnshire and Norfolk, UK, — Anthony Plaskitt of Billinghay Dales, Andrew Hall of Scunthorpe, and Tom Neal of Watlington, near King's Lynn — have been named the finalists for the 2009 Pfizer Poultry Trainee of the Year Award.

The award, including a training grant paid through the winner's employer and a cash prize, together worth 2,500 GBP (US$4,075), will be presented by Farming Minister Jim Fitzpatrick at a House of Commons ceremony Nov. 5 for both the poultry and pig sectors.
