Nine flock supervisors from Delmarva's five chicken companies received Outstanding Flock Supervisor awards at Delmarva Chicken Association's 57th National Meeting on Poultry Health, Processing, and Live Production. As flock supervisors, these chicken company employees work face-to-face with independent chicken growers as liaisons between the farmer and the chicken company.
The flock supervisors honored were:
"As a grower, I very much appreciate the job of the flock supervisor in working with me," said DCA President Far Nasir. "You are the liaison for the company, helping me to raise the best flock, while also delivering both good and bad news. And the relationships built between grower and supervisor are so important."
"An outstanding flock supervisor makes life on the farm easier for a chicken grower, and offers assurance to a chicken company that standards and practices are being followed," said Holly Porter, DCA's executive director. "These award recipients work hard day in and day out to meet those goals."
