Registration for the Layer and Turkey/Broiler Health Management Schools opened Jan. 7, 2019, the Poultry Health Management School recently announced.

The week-long event will be held May 13-17, 2019 at Iowa State University in Ames, Iowa. The topic theme this year is nutrition.

New for this year is the addition of a second layer school, which will be dependent on participation interest.


“We are excited to add a second Layer Health Management School this year,” said Steve Olson, executive director for the Poultry Health Management School. “The layer school always fills quickly and offering a second session allows for more people in the layer industry to increase their on-farm knowledge and as well as laboratory diagnostic skills.”

The schedule for the week is:

  • Turkey and Broiler Health Management School: May 13–14 with a welcome reception Sunday evening, May 12.
  • Layer Health Management School #1: May 14–15.
  • Layer Health Management School #2: May 16–17 (tentative).

A joint layer school welcome reception will be offered Wednesday evening, May 15.

Each school is limited to 70 attendees so register immediately to ensure your spot. Only five attendees will be accepted per company to each school. All separate locations count as one total company so please communicate with your other locations before registering attendees.
