Nebraska Poultry Industries Convention

2014 Nebraska Poultry Industries Convention
February 19-20, 2014
Norfolk, Nebraska

What is the NPI Convention?

The Nebraska Poultry Industries convention includes two days of educational programs, spouse program, optional luncheons and banquets, entertainment, raffle prizes, and a great time for all! The home-style turkey dinner served the first evening, finished off by quality entertainment, is always a big hit. The raffle prize drawing the second evening is becoming a popular tradition

Approximately 250 producers, processors, allied representatives, spouses, and other interested persons attend annually. Time is specifically allotted for making business contacts. Our format of not having exhibits allows commercial firm sales representatives more time to mingle and make contact with other attendees. Attendance at educational sessions is encouraged. The educational committee has made every attempt to address current issues of interest and keep the educational programs practical for maximum benefit to producers.

Nebraska boasts, in fact, many historic landmarks such as forts, pristine state parks and cultural attractions such as the Great Platte River Road Archway Museum which is built over Interstate 80.

If you’re interested in marveling architecture and enjoying history tours, don’t mist visiting the Nebraska State Capitol. The Capitol boasts stunningly beautiful architecture, as well as free guided tours that include a visit to the top-floor observation deck.

Ashland

Located between the cities of Lincoln and Omaha, the town of Ashland is another place you'd want to add to the list of interesting places to visit in Nebraska because of the Strategic Air and Space Museum. If you’ve been to other aviation museums such as the Tulsa Air & Space Museum in Oklahoma, you’d love the look and feel of the Strategic Air and Space Museum in Ashland.

The monuments are the Scotts Bluff National Monument, a geological marker that helped pioneers follow routes to the West; the Agate Fossil Beds National Monument, which features the preserved bones of prehistoric mammals; and the Homestead National Monument of America that celebrates one of the most ambitious efforts to settle the Midwest, the Homestead Act.
