November 17 & 18th Highlights
Let us begin by thanking all of our speakers, sponsors and attendees for attending our first ever, Virtual Poultry Innovations Conference.
It was a pleasure to host you all in this virtual space and we truly hope that there were some key takeaways for you to consider in your business for the coming year.
As we said, the future starts with good ideas, and one of the things I was reminded of was that we have excellent support from our Minister of Agriculture Lisa Thompson and our Senator Rob Black.
Throughout the two days, we heard from Lisa Keefe who laid the groundwork for understanding alternative proteins and what the market competition will look like moving forward. Dr. Temple Grandin shared her passion for animal welfare and highlighted that welfare truly is foundational to how we do business.
Dr. Van Erp showed us the value of information, dashboards and their use in precision farming which is improving day by day for poultry. Robert Nijkamp gave us a virtual tour of his innovative barn and shows the value in partnering with researchers to explore new ways of doing things.
Our break-out groups provided discussion forums and new innovations that will improve environmental impacts, animal husbandry and health, innovations in housing and more.
Conferences such as this wouldn’t be possible without the support of our sponsors, industry and participants. Thanks for joining us and see you all again soon!
