Watch on-demand now to learn the importance of a balanced approach in chicken production
Surveys show that many consumers are increasingly concerned about how birds are cared for, how antibiotics are used and how the environment is impacted by poultry production. Chicken producers have responded to these concerns by modifying some production practices, but these changes sometimes result in a step forward in one area but a step backward in another. Speaker G. Donald Ritter, DVM, ACPV, Mountaire Farms, will present how the One Health Certified program provides a framework for a balanced approach to continuous improvement in the health of birds, humans and the planet.
WHAT YOU’LL LEARN:
- The importance of a balanced approach in chicken production.
- How to become One Health Certified.
- The production and retail benefits of certification.
This webinar is part two of the seven-part 2020 Chicken Marketing Summit Webinar Series. Where poultry sales and marketing professionals come to learn about the latest consumer trends, marketing techniques and what to expect next in the ongoing competition for the center of the plate.
