Jamie Johansen

USPOULTRY_BluePoultry processing plant management plays an important role in today’s fast-paced poultry industry. USPOULTRY’s 2016 Poultry Processor Workshop will provide the latest information on the new technology, management techniques and inspection issues affecting processing operations. This year’s workshop will be held May 11-12, at the Sheraton Atlanta Hotel in Atlanta, Ga.

“As increasing automation and new management techniques occur, the poultry processing plant feels the impact perhaps more than any other operation in the company. Throw in constant changes and modifications in government inspection programs, and managing the plant becomes even more complicated on a daily basis. Make sure you keep up with today’s fast-paced poultry industry by attending this important seminar,” said John Wright, Fieldale Farms, and program committee chairman.

Topics that will be discussed include a Regulatory Update; Parts Intervention Strategies; OSHA Regional Emphasis Program: Overview and Legal Perspective, and An Industry Case Study; Leadership Development and Coaching; Continuous Improvement in the Plant…A Case Study; Sanitation Methods for Listeria Control; Meat Quality/Tenderness; Detection Methods for Salmonella and Campylobacter; Technology Showcase; Carcass Quality Analysis; and Preventative Maintenance 101.
