Statewide Small Scale Poultry Workshop Set

By Blair Fannin

BRYAN – A small-scale poultry production workshop, sponsored by the Texas AgriLife Extension Service, is scheduled from 9 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. Aug. 13 at the Brazos Center, 3232 Briarcrest Drive in Bryan.

“This workshop will provide small-scale poultry producers and enthusiasts with the latest information on the production of poultry for meat and eggs,” said Dr. Craig Coufal, AgriLife Extension poultry specialist. “As more individuals are taking part in this aspect of poultry production, this workshop has something for everyone with several informative presentations.”

Topics will include basic husbandry and management, production systems, nutrition, disease prevention and treatment, biosecurity and marketing rules and regulations.

Several speakers from the Texas A&M University Department of Poultry Science, department of entomology and the Texas Veterinary Medical Diagnostic Laboratory will be part of the workshop, Coufal said.

Cost is $75 before Aug. 5 and $100 after. Registration includes materials, breaks and a catered lunch. Registration is limited to the first 100 people, Coufal said.
