Poultry production workshop set Oct. 4

Delaware Cooperative Extension will offer a fall poultry production program from 1 to 3 p.m., Wednesday, Oct. 4, at the Carvel Research and Education Center near Georgetown. The program will focus on fundamentals of ventilation, poultry house controller basics, and facts and figures poultry growers should know.

Presenters will be Sydney Riggi, UD nutrient management extension agent and Georgie Cartanza, UD state poultry extension agent.

"We will review the advances in ventilation and control technology that our local growers will find useful and which will help increase the efficiency of their family farm operation," said Riggi.

Nutrient management credits are available. The address is 16483 County Seat Highway, Georgetown.

This session is free, but preregistration is requested. To register, contact Terra Eby at or 302-730-4000, or go to
