TUCKER, GA. – In addition to the three-day expo, which offers tens of thousands of attendees the opportunity to peruse the latest technologies and services from meat and poultry industry suppliers, the 2023 International Production & Processing Expo (IPPE), held in Atlanta Jan. 24-26, also provides abundant educational sessions. Part of the programming at the annual event will include opportunities to learn about new research findings from projects financed by the US Poultry & Egg Association (USPOULTRY) and the USPOULTRY foundation. Research presentations addressing topics that include Campylobacter, Woody Breast, Reovirus and Blackhead Disease will be made in the TECHTalks Theater in the Georgia World Congress Center (B-Hall, Booth B8675) from 9:30 a.m. to noon on Jan. 26. 

“This will be the sixth year IPPE will offer presentations of recently completed USPOULTRY research projects, and each year it has proved to be a successful program,” said Denise Heard, DVM, vice president of research for USPOULTRY.  “On a yearly basis, USPOULTRY and the USPOULTRY Foundation fund more than $1 million in research projects benefitting the poultry and egg industry. Funding research on this scale is possible due to the continued success of the International Poultry Expo, part of IPPE, as well as the success of the programs it offers.”

In total, more than 70 TECHTalk presentations focusing on an array of industry technology and trends will be made at the TECHTalk Theater Booths in both the B Hall and C Hall from Jan. 24 to Jan. 26. Each of the free presentations will last 20 minutes, addressing topics ranging from animal welfare to feed production to food safety and sustainability.
