ATLANTA — Avian influenza will be the featured topic at the 2024 Latin American Poultry Summit. The theme, “A Look at Avian Influenza to Prevent Its Spread and Recover from the Damages It Caused,” will be explored through a robust program line-up featuring technical experts, key business leaders and university researchers from the Latin American poultry industry.
The Summit is presented by the International Poultry Expo, part of the International Production & Processing Expo, and the Latin American Poultry Association.
“Avian influenza has spread throughout the Central and South American region, creating additional urgency to protect the respective national industries,” said Paul Hill, West Liberty Foods, and chair of USPOULTRY’s International Committee, which helps organize the Summit. “Technical topics focused on the surveillance, prevention, management and eradication of avian influenza and additional diseases will be addressed at this year’s Summit.”
