A quick note: The Multi-State Poultry Feeding and Nutrition Conference 2010 takes place May 25-27 in Indianapolis, Indiana. The valuable educational program kicks off on Wednesday the 26th with early presentations like Advances in Environmental Nutrition by Dr. Park Waldroup and Early Broiler Responses to Dietary Amino Acids by Dr. Bill Dozier.
Five things you need to know for your poultry operation and management:

  2. Series: NIAA 2010 One Health Poultry Presentations - Dr. Pat Wakenell - Welfare: The Husbandry-Health Link: The poultry perspective; Dr. Patricia Curtis - Food Safety Issues for Salmonella in Eggs and Egg Products; and Dr. Patricia Wakenell - Avian Influenza Update.
  3. Audio: Animal‑rights is not about treating animals more nicely - Wesley J. Smith, Award winning author and Senior Fellow in Human Rights and Bioethics at the Discovery Institute, shares this observation to a packed audience at the 2010 Animal Ag Alliance Stakeholder's Summit: Truth, Lies and Videotape: Is Activism Jeopardizing Our Food Security? Wesley shares more in this audio segment or you can read the transcript of the presentation.
  4. Resources: How will immigration effect your operations? - While immigration reform has been something the U.S. Congress has talked about for years, the recent Arizona legislation is forcing actions to occur. What are the effects of immigration reform to agriculture, agribusiness, and consumers? Follow the issues, learn about some new resources & links, and catch up on the commentary.
  5. Series: Hoax or Fact? Man-Made Climate Change - Dr. Jay Lehr, Science Director of The Heartland Institute, breaks down the hoax and myths behind man-made climate change. Dr. Lehr has been studying climate change for 30 years and has written widely on the subject. Despite the fact that the alarmists are obviously winning, he will share his knowledge that man does not, in fact, hold a candle to nature when it comes to controlling the climate of our universe.
