2020 Poultry Research Seminar - Speakers confirmed!


After a successful inaugural seminar in 2019, the 2020 Poultry Research Seminar is set for Tuesday 11 February at NFU HQ, in Stoneleigh Park. 

Each year, there is a plethora of research undertaken that isn't always accessible to farmers to practically implement.

This interactive seminar will be an opportunity for academics and the poultry industry to share ideas and enable farmers to access relevant and up to date research which is being carried out that can contribute positively to on farm productivity and efficiency.

It is also an opportunity for researchers to learn more about the practicalities on-farm and consider potential areas of interest for further research and on-farm projects.
