Zoetis - NFU Poultry Trainee Award 2020
 
 
The Zoetis-NFU Poultry Trainee Award is intended to promote the role of training in advancing career progression and benefiting both flock performance and animal welfare.

The award is open to all in egg, poultry meat and game sectors who can show how training is benefiting their career and performance on their unit.

The winner receives a £2000 training grant sponsored by Zoetis and an engraved trophy. Normally the finalists are invited to a presentation event where the winner is announced and we hope this will be possible later this year or early in 2021.

The judging panel will review all entries and shortlist three finalists who will be interviewed - in person or remotely – to decide the winner. Further details on this and the presenation will be announced later.

ENTRY CLOSING DATE: Friday 16 October
