The American Feed Industry Association held its annual Purchasing and Ingredient Suppliers Conference (PISC) this week in Fort Worth, Texas. The three-day educational and networking program boasted record 702 attendees, breaking last year’s record of 652 attendees, proving that it is becoming the “can’t miss” event for hundreds of feed ingredient buyers and sellers across the animal food industry.
The American Feed Industry Association congratulates Gregg Doud on his confirmation as chief agricultural negotiator in the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative (USTR). The Senate confirmed Doud yesterday following a lengthy hold placed on his nomination, and with myriad trade issues affecting the animal food manufacturing industry, AFIA believes he is the right person for the job.
On Friday, Lee Hall, the American Feed Industry Association’s board chairman and vice president of Hallway Feeds, penned an op-ed for Agri-Pulse that calls on the administration to “stop jousting with two of our most valuable trading partners” and move forward with the renegotiation of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA).
