Poultry Fair seminar: feed prices and cages
An innovative programme of forums
and workshops is on the agenda to offer to lively debates, valuable information
and free advice to poultry producers at this year's British Pig and Poultry
According to event manager Alice
Bell, a major focus of this year's event, which will be held 13-14 May in Stoneleigh
Park, Warwickshire, will be feed, which will bring together all members of the
supply chain to discuss how to minimise the risk of feed prices.
"Managing the risk related to
feed prices is of major importance to producers and it is essential that the UK
poultry meat and egg industries can address the reality of rising world food
prices and the potential role of GMOs," added Alan Murphy, managing director of
Fair sponsor ABN.
A new purpose-built theatre
seating over 75 people will host the forums where several issues will be
explored, including Integrated Pollution Prevention and Control solutions and
ways to satisfy changing consumer trends and demands.
The workshops, which will cater
for smaller audiences of around 25, will focus on practical advice on planning
permission, farm health planning and new opportunities in the poultry
With the conventional cage ban
soon to affect all caged birds, a dedicated workshop will look at the
performance and management of enriched cages.
