Youth Poultry 101
There are currently no events scheduled for this course.
Penn State poultry faculty and other experts present advanced poultry topics and practical hands-on learning experiences. DUE TO BIO-SECURITY, ALL ATTENDEES MUST BE AWAY FROM ANY POULTRY FOR AT LEAST 48 HOURS PRIOR TO ATTENDING THIS EVENT.
2017 Date will be Saturday April 29th. Program and registration are attached below.
This is not an adult Small Flock Program; it is intended for youth and leaders working with youth programs. It is designed as a next step for the older more advanced youth, and this is the reason that no youth under 12 years of age will be accepted. We have asked the presenters to include advanced topics in their presentations and plan to allow hands-on learning as much as possible.
Sessions will be conducted by Penn State poultry faculty and other experts. The program covers the following areas:
- Disease concerns
- Preparing poultry for shows
- Selecting production hens and oral reasons
