Why was this event moved to virtual?

The American Feed Industry Association has been following the news and messages from local, state and federal authorities regarding travel in light of the coronavirus outbreak. After close consultation with our members and partners, we have regrettably made the decision to cancel the in-person 2020 Feed Industry Institute and pivot it to a virtual format. More details on the new event will be available shortly. Please note that we did not make this decision lightly, but felt it was the right thing to do to protect the health and safety of our attendees and staff. Should you have questions, please contact register@afia.org.
