The International Poultry Expo is the primary source of funding for the U.S. Poultry & Egg Association, the world’s largest and most active poultry organization. It represents the entire industry as an “All Feather” association. Membership includes producers and processors of broilers, turkeys, ducks, eggs, and breeding stock, as well as allied companies. Formed in 1947, the association has affiliations in 27 states and member companies worldwide.

The Wheat Quality Council is an old organization with a new, much-broader focus. Founded in 1938 , it has a long and distinguished history of evaluating wheat for milling and end-use quality. In 1993-1994, the Spring Wheat and Soft Wheat groups were merged under the Council umbrella – a new Wheat Quality Council was born. The Council is now testing the milling and end-use qualities of Hard Winter, Hard Spring , Durum and Soft Wheats – nationwide. The merger has broadened influence, reduced costs, improved communication and encouraged broader industry support. The Wheat Quality Council can impact the future quality of wheat flour and flour based products in this country. Your membership contribution would be a wise investment if the quality of wheat has any influence on your business.
The Illinois Soybean Association is the statewide organization for Illinois soybean farmers.
