Delmarva Poultry Summit slated for March 13
SALISBURY, Md. — Experts in poultry research, policy and production are scheduled to meet for a day-long conference of information exchange, networking an learning at the upcoming Delmarva Poultry Summit.
The Delmarva Poultry University-Industry Partnership Committee is holding the session of engaged discussion on current poultry industry issues from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on March 13 at the Wicomico Youth and Civic Center.
According to the event’s organizers, the goal of this year’s Delmarva Poultry Summit is to build on the momentum from the 2017 summit that was held at the University of Maryland Eastern Shore, that resulted in the formation of the Delmarva University-Industry Partnership Committee, and to support our collaboration to advance the growth and sustainability of the poultry industry in the region.
The 2017 summit was the first of its kind for the region and was well recieved by attendees who sought information from their counterparts at other are universities.
“This is the first time in my memory that we’ve had a summit involving poultry that involved all the universities,” Tom Porter, University of Maryland professor of animal and avian sciences said as the 2017 summit wrapped up. “We need a summit, a conference like this on a regular basis.”
At the March 13 summit, invited speakers from the industry will focus on what keeps the poultry industry in Delmarva profitable and sustainable, and will engage the attendees in discussions of critical issues pertaining to policies and regulations that affect the industry. University faculty and students will showcase their work in the poster session, and a select few will give lightning presentations during the general sessions.
These will be brief, no longer than three-minute updates on the research programs, teaching, and extension activities at the universities serving the poultry community in Delaware, Maryland and Virginia, followed by a question and answer session.
