The CPA’s Mike Pennington-Martel presented on raising backyard poultry at the following two events!

The Connecticut Poultry Assocation and American Egg Board being represented on Nov 15 2019 at Foxwoods.  SNACT held their 70th Industry Food and Trade Show!  There were over 240 registered attendees.  That represented about 90 districts plus 5 charters and over 64% of Connecticut’s school enrollment!

Our booth was the first one as attendees entered the show.  We gave out 150 “goodie bags” that contained lots of great literature, along with some fun items like a measuring spoon, hot/cold pack, and jar opener!  All the items in the picture below were given out in the bags.

Sept 21 – 22 2019 – The CPA was located in the Connecticut Building for The Big E!

By far the most popular items were the dinner egg recipe cards, here is a sample of what was given out:

March 20 2019 – The CPA’s table at the 2019 AG Day at the State Capitol!

March 2 2019 – Mike Pennington-Martel presents an educational seminar on raising backyard poultry.  This was his first one since taking over as Secretary when Dr. Darre retired.  Ellington Agway was a great host and we had 30+ people show up even with some snow falling.  You can find a copy of the presentation by clicking HERE.
