MPA Appreciates the Following Companies' Support After COVID Cancels 2020 Convention

The MPA's 2020 Convention was cancelled due to the COVID-19 outbreak but the member companies shown on the link below have made donations to MPA even though there will be no convention to sponsor. The association makes about one-third of its annual revenue after paying the costs of the Convention.

We appreciate these donors for their support of the Association's mission of representing all of Mississippi's poultry industry and wanted everyone to know.

2020 Convention Sponsors

Poultry is Mississippi's largest agricultural industry and the Mississippi Poultry Association represents all aspects of the industry.

With $3 billion paid to growers and direct employment of 28,500 people, the industry has a total impact on Mississippi's economy of $20 billion, according to the National Chicken Council and the U.S. Poultry and Egg Association. That same report estimates the industry pays $1.5 billion in federal, state and local taxes.

In addition to the 1,700 family-run poultry farms around the state, Mississippi has 50 processing plants, hatcheries, feed mills and egg farms. These businesses interact with banks, real estate firms, insurance agencies, farm supply stores, grain farmers, plant and poultry house equipment manufacturers who are allied members of the association.

MPA was formed in 1937 to promote the health of the state's poultry flock. Mississippi produces about 750 million birds per year. The poultry industry in Mississippi has grown to be the fifth largest in the nation and exports about 20 percent of its production to more than 70 countries around the globe.

The association offers educational seminars for its members and seeks to educate the public and government officials about the value of the industry to Mississippi. Even as the Mississippi Poultry industry has grown to have a global impact, our concerns remain, bird health, producing a healthful product and ensuring a vibrant industry.

For more information about the industry or the association, please look around our website.
