About Midwest Poultry Federation

The Midwest Poultry Federation (MPF) was founded in 1971 and held its first convention in Minneapolis in 1972. MPF’s primary purpose is to host an annual regional convention emphasizing on-farm poultry production. The convention’s goal is to offer cutting-edge information to attendees through a balanced offering of exhibits and educational workshops.

Did you know? All revenue (after expenses are paid) generated by the MPF Convention is donated to various poultry organizations for research and educational activities as well as back to MPF’s member organizations listed here.
