USPOULTRY’s 2017 Hatchery-Breeder Clinic will bring together hatchery and breeder managers to look at the latest in biosecurity, technology, equipment and strategies to help increase hatchability, performance and chick quality.

The annual Clinic, sponsored by the US Poultry & Egg Association, will be held 11-12 July at the DoubleTree Hotel in Nashville, Tennessee.

Each year the programme planning committee, comprised of poultry industry leaders in hatchery and breeder management, comes together to determine the most relevant topics to address during the Clinic.

With avian influenza still a viable threat, it will again be a very important agenda topic, along with Effects of Reduced Antibiotics on Hatcheries and other hatchery-breeder management techniques.

The committee of hatchery and breeder specialists that planned this year’s agenda include: (front row) Edward Chisholm, Sanderson Farms Inc.; Daniel Dorsey, Fieldale Farms Corporation; and Jack Patrick, Harrison Poultry Inc. (Back row) Brian Mulkey, Koch Foods; Kirk Dawkins, Pilgrim’s; Richard Higgins, Perdue Farms Inc.; Leman Cockrell, Tyson Foods Inc.; and Dr. Joe Hess, Auburn University Poultry Science.
