Almost 20 National FFA Officer Candidates will attend the International Poultry Expo (IPE), part of the 2022 International Production & Processing Expo (IPPE), as a result of the USPOULTRY Foundation’s ongoing initiative to further attract the best and brightest students to the poultry and egg industries. The students will receive an all-expense paid trip to IPE in Atlanta, Georgia, and this opportunity is made possible in part by an endowing Foundation gift from Tyson Foods.
These college freshmen and sophomores are eligible to participate in the USPOULTRY Foundation College Student Career Program to interview for industry internship opportunities. Additionally, they will be able to see the vast trade show floor and the exciting technology used by today’s modern, sustainable poultry industry.
“We thank Tyson Foods for providing the opportunity for these proven young leaders to attend IPPE and gain an interest in our industry,” remarked John Starkey, president of USPOULTRY and its Foundation.
