Poultry Farm Management for New & Existing Growers

The University of Delaware Extension along with the University of Maryland Extension has created a one-day workshop for new and existing poultry farmers on Delmarva focusing on poultry farm management. With today’s environment it is important to learn about the many aspects of poultry farm management.

The topics that will be addressed are farm management, site management and maintenance, best management practices, mortality, manure handling, litter management, windbreaks/vegetative environmental buffers, financial/recordkeeping, concentrated animal feeding operation regulations, nutrient management, comprehensive nutrient management plans, inspections and emergency preparedness. We will also share all the information in a memory stick to take back to the farm for future reference. Certificate of completion will be awarded to each participant.

Registration is required on or before May 26, by calling Terra Eby of the University of Delaware at 302-730-4000 or email at terra@udel.edu.

This workshop is open to all. If you need special assistance, please register two weeks before the register by date.  Please let us know if you have special dietary needs.
