Six university researchers will present findings from recently-completed research projects funded by the U.S. Poultry & Egg Association (USPOULTRY) and its Foundation as part of the ever-popular TECHTalks at the 2019 International Production & Processing Expo (IPPE). The research presentations will be given in the TECHTalks Theater in C-Hall, Booth C9123, from 9:30 a.m. – 12 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 14. All of the TECHTalks presentations are free to registered IPPE attendees.

“Last year was the first year we had presentations from some of the recently completed research projects, and it was a great success,” said Dr. John Glisson, vice president of research for USPOULTRY. “Each year, USPOULTRY and the USPOULTRY Foundation fund more than $1 million in research projects that benefit the poultry and egg industry. Not everyone realizes the proceeds from the International Poultry Expo, part of IPPE, are one of the primary sources of funding for the research grants.”
