Update for January 19th, 2009

International Poultry Expo and Science Seminar just around the corner. As the industry pulls together with several of the support organizations including the International Feed Expo and the lead-off Poultry Scientific Program, maximizing efficiencies will be key focus. This program looks at research on all aspects of the poultry industry and a hearty discussion centered on paper presentations is generally heard in the poster rooms.

Just back from the American Farm Bureau Federation (AFBF) convention in Texas. That organization walking the tightrope between grain and livestock production, but pulls together on many of the key issues facing agriculture. What they've got right is the Young Farmer and Rancher group which is a connection point for young singles and couples looking to make their way in farming. And they're using this group to speak out on behalf of good management and husbandry practices in all livestock production. A lot of other organizations would do well to spend as much time with the up and comers as Farm Bureau.
