Poultry Growers Seminar on March 25

MidAtlantic Farm Credit will hold a Poultry Growers Seminar at the Powellville Fire Department in Pittsville, Maryland on March 25 from 9:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. The theme of the seminar is “Managing Your Operation in the Current Conditions” to guide poultry growers through the industry’s challenges.

“We are here to support farmers through the good times and the bad,” says Jennifer Frock, regional lending manager at MidAtlantic Farm Credit. “Understanding the difficulties our poultry growers are having on Delmarva right now, Farm Credit is offering this seminar to provide resources and networking opportunities for farmers who may be facing similar issues and have questions.”

Topics will include maintaining your poultry houses, new poultry equipment, antibiotic-free chicken, reading your settlement sheets, and managing your finances during longer layout periods. The seminar will conclude with roundtable discussions on various poultry topics with industry professionals. Attendees are encouraged to bring a copy of their most recent settlement sheet to reference during the seminar.

Registration is free, but mandatory. Breakfast and lunch are provided, and the seminar is open to anyone. To register, please visit mafc.com/poultry by March 13.
