2017 Poultry Protein & Fat Seminar Moving to Kansas City; Industry Tours Offered

14 August 2017

US - Protein conversion is an aspect of production that is not often discussed, but plays an important role in converting processing remnants into safe, high quality feed ingredients for a variety of industries.

This year’s Poultry Protein & Fat Seminar will review the latest technology, equipment and management techniques in the rendering sector. Sponsored by USPOULTRY and the Poultry Protein & Fat Council, the seminar will be held 5-6 October, at the Marriott County Club Plaza in Kansas City, Missouri.

"After being in Nashville for several years, we are excited the conference is moving to Kansas City. This year’s programme will cover a variety of topics that are relevant to those that work in rendering and other related fields. Being in Kansas City will also allow us the opportunity to visit nearby equipment manufacturing facilities," explained committee chairman Kenny Reece, Simmons Foods, Inc.

The Poultry Protein & Fat Council will provide an update on their activities. Topics to be covered during the seminar will include challenges with peroxide testing, types and uses of magnets in processing, costs of water in raw materials, wastewater treatment challenges, sanitary transportation and more.

The agenda was developed by a programme committee of industry leaders that included (seated left to right), Brian Aldridge, Simmons Foods Inc.; Kenny Reece (committee chairman), Simmons Foods Inc.; and Jonathan Green, American Proteins, Inc. (Standing left to right): Brandon Lachner, Tyson Foods Inc.; Josh Singleton, American Proteins, Inc.; Rick Estes, Fieldale Farms Corporation; Byron Kriz, Valley Proteins Inc.; and Hal Davis, Pilgrim’s.

Companies that render poultry protein and fat may attend the seminar only if they are members of USPOULTRY and the Poultry Protein & Fat Council. Representatives of rendering companies that are not council members are not eligible to attend the seminar. Membership in the Poultry Protein & Fat Council must be approved by the Council.
