Somehow the days seem to be getting busier (and feeling shorter after the recent time change), so this week we’re keeping our update short with holiday reminders and technical resources for poultry producers. We’ve also been seeing a lot of folks continue to be impacted by severe weather so keeping you all in our thoughts. Let us know what you need and thank each and every one of you for all you do for your farms, your families and your communities.
