ARLINGTON, Va. — The American Feed Industry Association (AFIA) on Feb. 3 opened registration for its biennial Feed Industry Institute (FII), set to take place June 8 to 11 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

Professionals in the animal food industries are invited to attend to learn more about processing fundamentals, from ingredients to federal policies.

“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, Ph.D., AFIA’s director of quality, animal food safety and education. "Our goal is that attendees not only understand how to manufacture high-quality animal food, but why doing so is so essential for animal productivity and well-being.”

FII 2020 will include discussions about the overall US feed industry, animal physiology and fundamentals of nutrition, ingredient best practices, additives and medications, processing techniques, consumer trends and communication, trade, and federal and state regulations impacting the industry.

The event will also feature opportunities to network, including a reception Monday, June 8, and a Milwaukee Brewer’s baseball game outing on Wednesday, June 10. The four-day educational program will end with a brief “graduation” ceremony and recap of key discussions and lessons learned throughout the week.
