About IPE

The International Poultry Expo is the primary source of funding for the U.S. Poultry & Egg Association, the world’s largest and most active poultry organization. It represents the entire industry as an “All Feather” association. Membership includes producers and processors of broilers, turkeys, ducks, eggs, and breeding stock, as well as allied companies. Formed in 1947, the association has affiliations in 27 states and member companies worldwide. This nonprofit organization represents its poultry and egg members through research, education, communications and technical services.

Funds earned at the International Poultry Expo are funneled directly back into the industry in the form of research grants, educational programs, communications, and technical assistance.
