The MTGA Summer Summit is a fantastic opportunity to learn about trending topics in the industry, network and connect with other members. It's a great way to meet new people from the industry and learn from one another in a fun setting. This is one event you (and your family) don't want to miss!
The Summer Conference is open to all MTGA members, former/retired MTGA members (our “Golden Gobblers”), all turkey farmers who pay checkoff, as well as those who are interested in joining MTGA – along with family members.
