In 2017, WATT celebrates 100 years serving professionals working in global poultry production and processing, and the animal agriculture industry. To commemorate this significant milestone, there are special activities and events planned throughout the year which will be featured on this website for you to browse and share including unique infographics, slide shows, photo galleries and our not-to-be-missed new content series.

WATT Global Media’s editors are creating a series of original forward-looking industry-focused articles, the “WATT 100: Future of the Poultry Industry” content series that will publish throughout 2017 in WATT Poultry USA, Poultry International, Egg Industry and Industria Avicola. These are planned as in-depth articles focused on exploring developments in key industry sectors that are making an impact on the future of the worldwide poultry industry.

Additionally, in January 2018 the WATT 100-Year Anniversary Compendium issue will be published and distributed at the 2018 IPPE show and through multiple other channels. This special edition will be a keepsake collectible of all “WATT 100: Future of the Poultry Industry” articles together in one book.

Be sure to check out our “100-Year History of WATT Publications” infographic which features original magazine cover images from the beginning of WATT’s publishing days, starting with the very first WATT produced issue of Poultry Tribune in September of 1917. This graphic visually connects the evolution and varied history of some of the industry’s most significant magazines of their time.

Click through the slide shows to view glimpses of agriculture’s rich and colorful past, with scans from the WATT archives of original magazine issues over the years including front covers, classic advertisements and original articles and artwork.
