New Research Project Evaluates Salmonella Risk in Animal Feed Production
The Institute for Feed Education & Research (IFEEDER), along with several partners–including the American Feed Industry Association (AFIA), National Pork Board, National Renderers Association, Poultry Protein and Fat Council, U.S. Poultry and Egg Association, and U.S. Soybean Board–has launched a new research project with the University of Arkansas to analyze whether animal feed contains any of the serotypes from the bacteria Salmonella that could pose a health threat to livestock.
