What to Expect?

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 MTGA Summer Summit provides several educational sessions for members to attend.

Who should Attend?

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.

We encourage you to bring the whole family. The Summit is the perfect combination of education and fun for all ages!
