Rich Mountain Conservation District Hosts Annual Poultry Registration Meeting

The Rich Mountain Conservation District held the Annual Poultry Registration Meeting Thursday,  February 7 at 6:00 p.m. in the Extension Service Education Center. The main topic this year was diseases in poultry.

 

There were three guest speakers. Dr. Dustan Clark, an Extension Poultry Health Veterinarian and Associate Center Director for Extension from the University of Arkansas. Dr. Clark presented information on diseases such as “Kinky Back” and Dermatitis issues in poultry houses.

 

Haylie Dobbs, the local NRCS Soil Conservationist, spoke about various NRCS Conservation program opportunities for poultry growers in the area.

 

Josh Yates, a Polk County Extension Agent, updated the attendees on Polk County Extension Service Activities such as upcoming Master Gardener events and more. The poultry growers had the opportunity to register their farms, enjoy a chili dinner, and ask questions about new information that was presented. We want to thank all the local sponsors that helped make this meeting possible.
