Dr. Shai Barbut

Only two months ago, Marel Stork's Poultry ShowHow in Copenhagen hosted an interesting lecture by Dr. Barbut, a global authority in the poultry industry. Now, during the IPPE in Atlanta, Shai Barbut is inducted in the Poultry Hall of Fame by the American Poultry Historical Society.

Only people who meet the qualification 'having rendered a lifetime of outstanding service to the poultry industry' are eligible to enter the Poultry Hall of Fame. Every three years a selected group of 4 or 5 persons is inducted. Their portraits, and those of previous honorees, are displayed in the Poultry Hall of Fame in the US Department of Agriculture’s National Library at Beltsville, Maryland.

Besides Shai Barbut, the three other inductees in the Class of 2016 are Glenn W. Froning, Andrew R. Rhorer and Yvonne Vizzier Thaxton.  All four of them were inaugurated at a ceremony during the IPPE on January 27th.
