PoultryCast update for January 14, 2011, Poultry House Management In Cold Weather

Thanks again to all who participated in the PoultryCast survey for 2011. The information from the survey is being reviewed and will be published February 1st. Also, congratulations to Katrina Striplin, the winner of the $100 Target gift card drawing.
