More than 20,500 visitors from 100-plus different countries attended this year’s event supporting the feed, pet food and poultry industries.
The annual trade show and expo, the world's largest event of its kind, housed 895 exhibitors who displayed the latest in products and technologies, while sponsoring associations provided numerous educational programs and international networking opportunities.
"The International Feed Expo is a place for everyone to come together on a global basis and access the latest technology in the marketplace, to receive education on best practices and also share a good networking opportunity with other people in the industry," said Joel Newman, AFIA president & CEO. "With over 20,000 attendees here at the show, it’s the place to be.”

Who gets things done just the way you like them? Who does the best job? Who can you always count on to deliver? In answering these questions, deep down, many of us may feel we do things best, we do it right, and no one else can do it better! While that MAY be true — at least for certain activities and tasks — there is some finite limit on what we can accomplish as individuals.
