The NFU is running its annual Poultry Research Seminar as a series of shorter virtual meetings this year.
Across three sessions, the NFU's poultry team will bring you research and innovation from the industry covering the poultry meat and egg sectors. The sessions are designed to help bridge the gap between academic research and on-farm practices.
The seminars will be taking place on 15, 17 and 19 March 2021 between 3pm and 4.30pm, and will cover on-farm and university-based research looking particularly at the latest innovations, animal welfare and feed.

NFU poultry board chairman Thomas Wornham (pictured above) said:
“The third NFU Poultry Research Seminar builds upon previous events, to act as a conduit between academia and industry, introducing new and innovative research and ideas that may be unheard of or something you could see benefiting your business.
"Our industry continues to evolve as businesses invest in new facilities and infrastructure. This series of seminars aims to enable poultry businesses to keep pace with new and upcoming trends, practices and even some blue sky thinking for the vision of the future.”
