Join AFIA at the Feed Industry Institute
Tuesday, February 4, 2020
The American Feed Industry Association has opened registration for its biennial Feed Industry Institute (FII) that will be held from June 8 - 11 in Milwaukee, USA. The conference brings together individuals in the industry to learn the fundamentals of the animal feed manufacturing process – from the types of ingredients used to the animals served to federal policies that shape the output of the industry.
“The Feed Industry Institute is a great educational forum where people new to the livestock feed or pet food industry can learn more about the business of feed from those who know it best — industry experts,” said Paul Davis, AFIA’s director of quality, animal food safety and education. "Our goal is that attendees not only understand how to manufacture high-quality animal feed, but why doing so is so essential for animal productivity and well-being,” Davis added.
The 2020 FII will include an overview of the U.S. feed industry, animal physiology and nutrition basics, information on the types of ingredients used in animal food and why, the role of medications and other additives, and various processing techniques. It will also look at agriculture’s role in building consumer trust, the role of international trade and provide an overview of state and federal regulations. Check here the agenda.
