IFEEDER Works to Expand Feed Industry Reach

The Institute for Feed Education and Research also installed new board leadership


The Institute for Feed Education and Research (IFEEDER) held its annual Board of Trustees meeting this week to discuss broadening awareness of the value of its research and education initiatives on behalf of the animal food industry, as well as install new board leadership and trustees.

“As IFEEDER advances sustainability efforts to directly benefit the animal feed and pet food industry, it also serves the important purpose of being a trusted resource among stakeholders up and down the food supply chain who are making decisions that will impact the future of food production,” said Lara Moody, executive director for IFEEDER.
