London Poultry Show sets records

The London Poultry Show set a couple of records this year, including 170 exhibitors and attendance of 3,951 people.

It’s Canada’s largest poultry-industry show and at 57 years, one of the longest-running trade shows.

“The first day had a great turnout  of 2,485 people,” said Keith Robbins, who recently moved over from the Ontario Pork marketing board to be executive directors of the Poultry Industry Council.

“Great weather, a late start to the season to get on the land and an excellent opportunity to see new equipment and talk with industry representatives all led to a very successful show,” Robbins said. 

The show is organized by the Poultry Industry Council in partnership with the Western District and Farm Credit Canada.
