USPOULTRY Financial Management Seminar


Though today’s economy is thriving, several economic drivers, including tax laws, technology, labour, consumer behaviour and legislative change, have a huge impact on poultry and egg companies’ financial management. USPOULTRY’s 2018 Financial Management Seminar will review these economic drivers and provide valuable information to help increase your company’s bottom line.
The Seminar is scheduled for June 25 – 27, at the Hilton Sandestin Beach Golf Resort and Spa in Destin, Fla.
