The Multi-State Poultry Feeding and Nutrition Conference is in Indianapolis this week, with attendance over past years.

PoultryCast Update for May 14, 2011, Can You Build Retailer-Producer Relationships?

PoultryCast offers a great update on the Farm Bill discussion, with focus on legislation that impacts animal agriculture. Staffers expect possible floor debates on animal welfare concerns following the United Egg Producer - HSUS agreement [see Gene Gregory, President, United Egg Producers, presentation video]. Washington watchers seem evenly split on the chance of getting a new Farm Bill out the other end before the end of the year. Another presentation just added to the PoultryCast episode list (which just passed 300) are comments helpful to building a better relationship with retailers and consumers. The expert on deck is Greg Ferrara, VP of Public Affairs for the National Grocers Association [audio].
