2010 Market Poultry Production and Selection Workshop

The 2010 Texas Market Poultry Production and Selection Workshop will be held on Saturday, May 22, 2010 at Texas A&M University’s Louis Pearce Pavilion on George Bush Drive in College Station. The workshop will begin at 8:50 am and will adjourn at approximately 3:00 pm.
This workshop provides CEAs, Agriscience Instructors, 4H Leaders, parents and youth with an opportunity to ‘hear the experts’ and work alongside judges and superintendents for major poultry shows in Texas. Educational activities include an in-depth discussion of brooding, management, sanitation programs, feeding programs and selection methods for broilers, turkeys and roasters. Discussion on selection procedures and bird quality characteristics will be followed by ‘hands on’ practice in early culling and selection of show pens.

Registration for the event will be conducted by Texas AgriLife Extension Conference Services online at beginning in April. Mail-in registration instructions can also be found on the website. Early registration for the event will be $35 per person or family with an additional (optional) cost of $9.00 per meal for BBQ lunch.
