    The sixth annual Professional Pastured Poultry Conference is back in person in January at the Southbank Hotel at Jacksonville Riverwalk in Jacksonville, Florida, and we have a fantastic program in the works for this three day event. 

    Pre-Conference. January 16, 2022: 

    Dave Pratt, Ranching for Profit School, will lead a full day session. Attendance is limited. 

    Main Conference. January 17-18, 2022: 

    The APPPA Professional Pastured Poultry Conference is more than a discussion about production. We'll make time to discuss the nuts and bolts of production and processing, but we'll also bring you topics and discussions that help you develop your business. 

    Featured Topics:

    • Marketing by Steven Schneitman, Do Good Media. Steven is a certified Storybrand 
    • Leadership by Grant Estrade who will challenge farm business owners 


    When you register, you'll have the option to choose to attend Sunday only, Monday/Tuesday only, or all three days.
