Our members in the poultry and egg industry have served as the foundation and governing body of our organization since its inception.
The foresight of the founding fathers of this organization has carried over to today’s generation of poultry executives.
Many of our active members and those that currently serve on our Board of Directors are second, third, and fourth generation Arkansas poultry industry family members.
