Evolving consumer preferences - and an increasing interest in the farm-to-fork origins of animal protein production - have trickled down to influence how animal feed is formulated and produced. The Feed Strategy Conference, co-located with IPPE 2019, aims to assist in providing animal feed stakeholders the tools they need to maintain productivity and profitability in a changing production landscape.

The half-day event will examine the role feed plays in building consumer confidence now and into the future. From traceability to successful antibiotic-free production, if you're working in poultry or feed production, you will not want to miss this forum for knowledge exchange.
