From hatch to pack, growing with good gut health improves production. Gut health and the gut microbiome influence the life of poultry even before they hatch. The process of competitive exclusion of the negative bacteria empowers optimal health and feed conversion. Much research has gone into investigating the pioneering bacteria and ensuring the colonization of beneficial bacterial community. Join us to hear how the research of gut health is making impacts on your production.  The Tentative Agenda, sponsorship opportunities and the registration link can be found below.

A Note on In-Person Events

Poultry Industry Council is working closely with industry stakeholders such as CFIA, OMAFRA and our Feather Boards to ensure we are operating our in-person events with caution and respect for the evolving HPAI situation in the province. Should the situation change in such a way that an in-person event needs to pivot, we will update  registered attendees, sponsors and our website.

We sincerely thank the industry for supporting us as we continue to work through challenging times.
