The 2020 Midwest Poultry Federation (MPF) Convention returns to Minneapolis for the third year as the largest regional show for all segments of the poultry industry, whether it be broilers, layers, turkeys or processing. The convention allows attendees time to visit the exhibit hall and attend educational workshops, in addition to offering networking events. The convention aims to provide the latest information on the future of all aspects of poultry production to attendees through a balanced offering of exhibits and learning opportunities. The MPF Convention is a great place to learn about products, services and new technologies that are vital to producers’ success.

Student Careers Program

MPF will also feature a Student Careers Program to connect the poultry industry with a focused talent pool and educate students on career opportunities in the industry. New for 2020, MPF is partnering with the Professional Agriculture Students (PAS) Organization to bring nearly 400 agriculture students from around the U.S. to the program.
