The Institute for Feed Education and Research (IFEEDER) released its 2021-22 annual update this week, providing financial and project highlights for the 501(c)(3) public charity.
“It could be argued that the past year was one of the most important for the Institute for Feed Education and Research since its inception,” said Mike Schuster of Laidig Systems, Inc. and IFEEDER Board chair 2022-23. “The vision and commitment of the American Feed Industry Association leadership, along with a strong level of energy generated by IFEEDER’s new executive director, has placed IFEEDER on an exciting path for the future.”
The annual update provides details on several IFEEDER research and education projects, including on the topics of:
- Advancing the feed industry’s sustainability initiatives;
- Improving feed management strategies and animal diets to boost production efficiency and reduce environmental impacts;
- Preparing for a potential African swine fever outbreak; and
- Examining the costs and benefits of sourcing genetically modified-free ingredients.
In addition to those and other project updates, the report highlights IFEEDER’s support of two funds – the Kenny Berg Research and Education Fund and the AFIA Equipment Manufacturers Committee’s Scholarship Fund. The report is available at ifeeder.org/annual-update.
