Program Resources

Seminars, Conferences & Workshops

The U.S. poultry industry is the most innovative and progressive segment of animal agriculture. Subject to constant change, the industry must stay well-informed to maintain an edge. The USPOULTRY seminar department works to ensure that the poultry industry receives the most up-to-date information about the various topics that impact it.

Teacher Resources

USPOULTRY has created video content such as, Poultry & The Hormone Myth and An Inside Look at Poultry Processing, to provide a clearer understanding of how the industry operates. We also provide third-party resources that teachers and others may find useful in their curriculum or teaching capacities.

Student Outreach

The U.S. Poultry & Egg Association believes that today's youth are tomorrow's leaders. USPOULTRY recognizes their role in the success of the poultry industry and the impact their current experiences will have on their future industry-related decisions. As a result, USPOULTRY sponsors and participates in a number of programs designed to assist students interested in the poultry industry.

Training Resources

USPOULTRY leads the development of employee training programs. These programs are available to USPOULTRY members free-of-charge or for purchase for non-members. Please note that certain programs may be available to USPOULTRY members only. Membership information can be found here.
