PoultryCast update for December 28, 2009, How Will Carbon Legislation Affect Various Ag Segments?

The industry show season is quickly approaching as we gear up for the International Poultry Expo and Scientific Symposium in Atlanta. That show is co-located with the American Feed Industry Association International Feed Expo and conference at the World Congress Center. That’s a combination that makes sense and has contributed to attendance.

We’re also hearing of additional interest in grain quality with much of the mid-western corn crop showing signs of mold and the attending toxin issues. If you’re not using binders, it may be a good year to discuss options with your vet/nutrition team.
