The American Feed Industry Association (AFIA), in coordination with Feedstuffs, has opened the application phase for its Commercial Dry Feed Facility of the Year (FFY) program. The program is open to all AFIA member commercial dry facilities. 

“We are excited to have the opportunity to recognize the commercial dry facilities that go above and beyond in keeping their operations running safely and efficiently,” said Gary Huddleston, the AFIA’s director of feed manufacturing and regulatory affairs. “The commercial dry category has always had a large participation and we are looking forward to a large participation again this year.” 

The AFIA has been recognizing excellent feed manufacturing facilities since 1985. In 2016, the AFIA created four distinct manufacturing categories to be more inclusive of our industry facilities. In 2021, the FFY program separated each category into its own individual program: liquid feed, commercial dry, premix and ingredient, and integrator, with each category having its own facility of the year award. 

The application phase for the Commercial Dry Feed Facility of the Year is now open and submissions, with the $100 application fee, are due by Sept. 16. The winning facility will be recognized at the AFIA’s Feed Education Program at the International Production & Processing Expo, taking place Jan. 26, 2022, in Atlanta, Ga. The winning plant manager will receive overnight accommodations and a free registration to the expo.
