European Layer Training Initiative

A XX day tour of laying hen farms in four European Countries: the Netherlands, Belgium, Sweden and Switzerland.

The goal of the program was for North American poultry specialists, farmers, industry experts to learn about European approaches to farming in non-cage systems

This was a formative experience for me.  I got to know an incredible group of people over the course of the trip, and learned as much from them as the farms (and farmers) we visited.
