Which came first… A great show or a great group of volunteers. Perhaps it’s the latter. The NEPC boasts of a great group of friends and helpers. It requires considerable labor to bring about this happy event. Our volunteers have just completed staffing 17 days at the Big E Fair. These guys worked a staggering 221 hours to present the Congress show to you. With out their help at the Fair we would be unable to land such a nice building for our show. I would like to send out a big Thank You to all who helped !
The Northeastern Poultry Congress is pleased to announce that we will be hosting the 2015 ABA National

We understand that the Regency Hotel is calling possible exhibitors soliciting business. We also understand that the Regency is telling people that our previous exhibitor list was sold to a marketing company to exploit our show attendees.
At no time has the exhibitor list ever been sold to a marketing company by any officer of the Congress or will it ever be offered.
The exhibitor list is for our entrant's and for our attendees only.
Where people stay is their prerogative, but we feel the Regency is being under handed and is being dishonest in how they have gone about trying to get this business.
The Northeastern Poultry Congress would like to thank all of our Members and Volunteers, The APA, The Judges, The Exhibitors, The Vendors, The Big E (Donna Woolam in particular) and all the Visitors who attended.
Thanks to everyone who stopped us to give words of appreciation throughout the weekend.
Your kindness and encouragement means so much to us!!!!!!!!!!!
This APA National Show was by far our heaviest attended.
Our Sales area was mobbed throughout the entire day on Saturday, and birds were flying out the doors.
We had a wide variety of Vendors, Breed Club Tables, and Raffles: all were busy all day long.
Junior Showmanship had the largest classes ever.
And most important the quality of birds this year was phenomenol
Reserve Super Grand Champion - Blue Muscovery Hen by Danny Padgett
We are looking for a missing Bantam Old English Silver Duckwing Hen with a green band on its leg.
If anyone went home with an extra bird by accident and hasn't figured out what to do, (it wouldn't be the first time that's happened) or if you know anything, please email me.
The owner just really wants the bird back and is willing to pay return shipping. So double check your coops guys, and fingers crossed we can find the bird.
Our Junior Poultry Show and Junior Showmanship programs have been growing by leaps and bounds over the past few years.
It is time for the Juniors to have a voice on our website.
I am looking for some Junior correspondants to contribute pictures of champion row, showmanship, and candid fun shots throughout the weekend. You will need to be able to email me jpegs with captions identifying the birds or kids.
I am also looking for articles or essays on your experiences throughout the weekend. These will need to be emailed as word documents.
All submissions need to be received within 2 weeks of shows end.
Help from parents or 4-H leaders is fine, or do it on your own.
