USPOULTRY Foundation brings leadership candidates to 2023 IPPE


As part of the USPOULTRY Foundation's continued efforts to support the recruitment and training of the brightest students and to promote careers in the poultry and egg industry, the National FFA Officer Candidates were invited to the 2023 International Poultry Expo (IPE), part of the International Production & Processing Expo (IPPE) held in Atlanta, Georgia, the United States.

The opportunity for them to participate was made possible in part by an endowing gift from Tyson Foods.

"Our industry continues to evolve, and young talent brings fresh insights in addition to diverse mindsets," said Chip Miller, senior vice president of live production at Tyson Foods and member of the USPOULTRY board of directors. "We need to continue encouraging their development and growth, while attracting the best young leaders to work in this industry.

"Tyson Foods' culture includes investing in future leaders, and we are pleased to contribute to this effort."

"USPOULTRY has been a supporter of FFA for many years. We are pleased to be able to provide these National Officer Candidates, our potential future leaders, the opportunity to experience the world's largest annual trade show for the poultry and egg, meat and animal food industries," remarked Mike Levengood, USPOULTRY Foundation's chairman.

As college students, the candidates were provided the opportunity to participate in the USPOULTRY Foundation College Student Career Program to interview for internship opportunities with poultry and egg industry member companies and exhibitors.

The students were also able to explore the vast trade show floor to see modern technologies used by the poultry industry.
