The University of Northern Iowa’s Center for Energy and Environmental Education is educating farmers in order to encourage the use of local, antibiotic-free chickens and eggs.

Tomorrow at 2pm, farmers will meet on UNI’s campus to hear from Tony Halsted – the owner of Hoover’s Hatchery. Halsted will discuss the opportunity and benefits of buying and raising chickens that are locally bred and antibiotic-free.

This meeting is open to the public.
