The University of Maine Cooperative Extension is offering a free webinar from 7–8 p.m. (EST), Tuesday, Dec. 4, on the business side of raising poultry.
The webinar will instruct viewers in the use of a “break-even calculator” spreadsheet for backyard, small scale or midsize poultry enterprises. The spreadsheet will help poultry producers better understand their costs and calculate a reasonable
price for their products. The spreadsheet was developed by Wisconsin Extension educator Adam Hady for meat and egg producers to establish minimum pricing.
To participate in the webinar, viewers should connect to the Web link connect.extension.iastate.edu/poultry on a computer or device a few minutes before 7 p.m. on Dec. 4. For an electronic copy of the break-even calculator for poultry, email UMaine Cooperative Extension educator Richard Brzozowski at email@example.com. For more information or to request a disability accommodation, contact Richard Brzozowski at 207.781.6099.
The webinar is an offshoot of a Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education grant in applied poultry science, coordinated by UMaine Extension.
