IPPE ‘TECHTalks Event’ to present key research

January 24, 2020: Information on key research projects, vital to the progress and benefit of the US Poultry and Egg industry, will emerge from ‘under the microscope’ at the popular TECHTalks Event, scheduled at this year’s International Production & Processing Expo (IPPE), taking place at the end of the month.

The Expo, representing the entire chain of protein production and processing is jointly sponsored by the American Feed Industry Association (AFIA), North American Meat Institute (NAMI) and U.S. Poultry & Egg Association (USPOULTRY). It is in fact a collaboration of three shows – International Feed Expo, International Meat Expo and the International Poultry Expo.

Vital research
On a yearly basis, USPOULTRY and the it’s Foundation funds more than $1 million in vital research projects which benefit the Poultry and Egg industries. This year, no fewer than six expert university researchers will be presenting the detailed findings emerging from recently completed projects.
Topics on the 2020 research projects agenda at the TECHtalks Event, will include peracetic acid-based disinfectants, variant strains of IBV antimicrobial efficacy of organic acid blends, an update on blackhead research, broiler welfare and woody breast detection.

Highlighting
This will be the third year that the IPPE Expo has staged presentations highlighting key completed USPOULTRY research projects. In previous years these presenations have proved to both successful and revealing
Says Dr Denise Heard, director of research for USPOULTRY. “Funding research on this scale is possible due to the continued success of the International Poultry Expo, a key part of IPPE. This will be the third year of the IPPEoffering presentations of recently completed USPOULTRY research projects, and each year it has proved to be a most successful programme.”
The research presentations will be given in the special TECHTalks Theater in C-Hall, Booth C9249, from 9:30 a.m. – 12 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 30. All of the TECHTalk presentations are free to registered IPPE attendees.
