The Poultry Industry Council has rejected the idea of merging its annual show with the Canadian Poultry XPO planned for Stratford late next year.

The Canadian Poultry Council and the Western Fair District recently invited the XPO organizers to a meeting and “after reviewing the presentation by XPO organizers, (the Poultry Industry Council) has decided not to participate or collaborate with the show that’s planned for Stratford in late 2020, and will have no official affiliation with the event,” the council said in a news release.

The Canadian Poultry XPO is being launched by the organizers of the Canadian Dairy XPO at Stratford, Jordon and Donna Underhill.
