The 2018 AFGA Nutrition Seminar was recently held on April 4th and 5th in Huntsville, Alabama. Just over two hundred people were in attendance this year to hear a great lineup of speakers at the Westin Huntsville at Bridge Street Town Centre. The Technical Symposium on the morning of Wednesday, April 4, was sponsored by Diamond V, and the AFGA seminar program followed on Wednesday afternoon and Thursday morning. The meeting featured a variety of well-known speakers and industry experts discussing feed-related challenges and opportunities for the poultry industry. The event concluded with a golf scramble at the Robert Trent Jones golf trail on the afternoon of April 5th, with first place accolades going to the foursome of Bobby Crowe, Mark Bellamy, Shane Guy and Wes Sullivan.
Both attendance and financial support for the AFGA Nutrition Seminar have steadily increased since its commencement in 2012, allowing the AFGA to increase scholarship contributions to $35,000 in 2018. These scholarship opportunities are available to any deserving student in the field of agriculture. Scholarship applications are available online by clicking here, and are due by May 31 each year. Scholarship winners are typically notified by early July.
The 2019 AF&GA Nutrition Seminar is tentatively planned for April 17-18, 2019, again at the Westin Huntsville. Plan early and save the dates on your calendar. Those interested in sponsoring future technical symposiums or other sponsorship opportunities can contact Mrs. Edna Waller for more details at firstname.lastname@example.org .
