Sparboe attends the national NPIP conference in New Orleans

NPIP (National Poultry Improvement Plan) was established in the early 1930′s and is a group representing cooperating State agencies and poultry industry members. NPIP serves as an essential function by acting as a liaison between the poultry industry and the Department in matters pertaining to poultry health.

The 2012 conference was held on September 25-27 in New Orleans, LA and our Director of Production and Production Compliance Specialist were in attendance. Sparboe Farms was a delegate for Minnesota and voted on a number of recommendations to improve the NPIP program.

Topics for discussion included:
1. Salmonella testing
2. Technical Committee report
3. Avian influenza
4. USDA regulatory review
