HARRINGTON, Del. — The University of Maryland Extension has created a one-day workshop for new and existing poultry farmers on Delmarva focusing on poultry farm management, scheduled to take place June 3 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Harrington Moose Lodge in Harrington, Del. With today’s environment, it is important to learn about the many aspects of poultry farm management.
The topics that will be addressed are farm management, site management and maintenance, best management practices, mortality, manure handling, litter management, windbreaks/vegetative environmental buffers, financial/recordkeeping, nutrient management, inspections and emergency preparedness. We will also share all the information in a memory stick to take back to the farm for future reference. Certificate of completion will be awarded to each participant.
