Photo Report: European Poultry Conference 2014 ends

In the city of Stavanger, Norway, the XIVth European Poultry Conference was held this past week. Around 1,000 delegates from all-over the world participated to the very well organised and successful event.

The European Poultry Conference (EPC) is organised under the responsibility of the European Federation of the Worlds' Poultry Science Association (WPSA) and is held every four years in a European city. This year it was Stavanger, Norway.

Although it is a European conference, EPC attracts delegates from all continents. Also this time there was a wide interest for the many topics covered, ranging from genetics to nutrition. And from housing to health care.

Take a look at the photo impression, reviewing the atmosphere of EPC 2014.
