POULTRY FARM MANAGEMENT FOR NEW & EXISITNG GROWERS

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.

Topics to 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, Environmental Protection Agency inspections and emergency preparedness.  We will share all the information in a binder to take back to the farm for future reference.  Certificate of completion will be awarded to each participant.
