The American Pastured Poultry Producers Association is pleased to announce a one-day intensive training course for upstart pastured poultry producers in Greenville, Texas, on January 20, 2019. The course will feature modules on planning, marketing, housing/brooding, nutrition, and processing.

This course is instructor-led by pastured poultry experts and will focus on giving participants a deep introduction and firm foundation to raising pastured poultry for profit.

Who should attend?

  • People who are new to raising pastured poultry
  • Those who are transitioning from a family flock to a market flock
  • Farmers who have struggled with their pastured poultry management and marketing
  • New employees at established pastured poultry farms
