Poultry quilt auction

The Poultry Science Association Annual Meeting, Saturday July 16 through Tuesday, July 19, will include a silent auction to benefit the PSA Foundation during the Awards Reception. Be sure to bring your poultry "stuff" to the meeting to raise funds for the Foundation in a fun way. Austin and Susan Cantor, University of Kentucky, are again generously donating a handcrafted quilt to the PSA Foundation. The quilt features covers from nine volumes of The Journal of Applied Poultry Research, shown here. Last year, a total of $1,300 was raised through raffle ticket sales during the week of the Annual Meeting.

For the past few years, Susan Cantor (with a little help from husband Austin) has created a quilt with a poultry theme for the Poultry Science Association raffle at the annual meeting. This year the theme will be developed using men's ties with poultry motifs.

She is looking for men's ties she can cut up and use for the quilt.

If you have poultry-related ties please send them to Austin Cantor at:
