WITH just under four weeks until Poultry.Network Live takes place at Harper Adams, we’re once again looking forward to welcoming a broad cross-section of the poultry sector for a day of insights, learning and conversation. 

Here’s 12 reasons why you should book a place…

1: A learning environment: Utilising Harper Adams Regional Food Academy and modern Weston Lecture theatre for our conference and exhibition provides a light, airy space which is comfortable and conducive to business and learning. 

2: Early September is ‘back to school’ time for many, and Poultry Network Live is an opportunity to reconnect with colleagues, customers and peers across the poultry sector in an informal but professional setting after the summer break. 

3: A top-quality conference and speaker programme: This year’s theme is: Building sector resilience in the face of external headwinds. 

4: Our keynote session this year features Graham Atkinson, Agriculture Director, Noble Foods, Justin Coleman, Agriculture Director, Moy Park and Professor David Hughes, an internationally renowned expert on global food and drink industry issues. 

5: Learn about the latest issues affecting the broader poultry sector from the British Poultry Council and the British Egg Industry Council.

6: Our panel after lunch will look at health trends, feed pricing and ways to tackle issues on-farm.  

7: Hear the latest on avian influenza with Gordon Hickman, Head of Exotic Disease and Surveillance Policy, APHA, who will give an overview ahead of the higher-risk autumn season. 

8: Arm yourself with the latest biosecurity learnings from the epidemiology report covering outbreaks over last winter with Livetec’s Julian Sparrey. 

9: Boehringer Ingelheim’s Dr Mike Clarke will give a pharmaceutical company’s perspective on the avian influenza ‘vaccination conundrum’. 

10. Catch up with existing suppliers or find new ways to farm better at our exhibition. We have a broad range of businesses exhibiting, offering solutions to poultry production’s biggest challenges. 

11. A great networking opportunity: Delegates come from every sector of poultry production, from farm managers to owner-operators, retailers to the allied trade – be part of this drive for profitability and excellence.

12: Lunch is covered, thanks to leading poultry building specialists, Morspan. And our tea and coffee sponsors, JF Mckenna and PD Hook, will ensure you do not go thirsty either. Want to take notes? ValCo will be providing a pad to do so.
