Profitable Poultry 6-week Online Course

September 2, 2014

Many small farms integrate a poultry enterprise--and many new farmers get started with poultry--because chickens, eggs, turkeys, and ducks are popular with customers, low-investment, quick-turnaround enterprises. But there's a lot to know, from getting breed selection right, to maintaining flock health, understanding marketing regulations, and optimizing feed rations. Profit margins can be slim, and making good decisions about these things means the difference between profit and loss!

BF 130: Poultry Production - Profiting from Layers, Broilers, Turkeys, and Ducks is a 6-week online course that will help you improve your existing poultry operation or set up a new poultry enterprise. The course consists of weekly real-time webinars followed by homework, readings, and discussions on your own time in an online setting.

The course runs Wed. Oct 15 - Nov. 19, 2014, with webinars Wed. evenings from6:30-8pm EST. The cost is $200, but multiple people from the same farm may participate without paying extra. See the course description page for more on the course learning objectives, instructors, and outline.
