2019 Professional Pastured Poultry Conference

In 2019, we're expanding to a three day format, and offering something for all experience levels. Use the information below to help guide you in attending the right days based on your your experience, needs, and goals.

Day 1 Intensive Pastured Poultry Course

Day 1 features a one day classroom based training for upstart pastured poultry producers. The training will incorporate planning, marketing, production, housing, nutrition, and management topics. 

You should attend the Intensive Pastured Poultry Training Course, if you are:

  • within the first year or two of raising pastured poultry.
  • transitioning from a family flock to a market flock.
  • struggling with your pastured poultry management and marketing.
  • training new employees at established pastured poultry farms.

Days 2-3 Professional Pastured Poultry Conference

Days 2 and 3 feature our flagship Professional Pastured Poultry Conference where experienced and scaled up producers gather in a single place to learn, collaborate, and network with one-another.

You should attend the Professional Pastured Poultry Conference, if you are:

  • scaled up or in the process of scaling up your pastured broiler (> 5,000 a year), layer (> 500), or turkey operation.
  • experienced in pastured poultry production, marketing, or processing.
  • open to sharing information, learning from others, fostering a cooperative community, and discussing the vision of pastured poultry.
  • tired of being the most knowledgeable person in the room at pastured poultry gatherings.
  • searching for a community of farmers who understand what you do, how you do it, and why you do it. 

Register for the Professional Pastured Poultry Conference.  

The fine print: this is not meant to be a list of qualifications to attend either one of these events. It's describes the type of people who attend and the target audience. Registration is open and unmoderated; however, discussion at the professional pastured poultry conference is facilitated to ensure we don't get stuck on the basics of production. If in doubt, register for all 3 days.
