Attendees at the International Production & Processing Expo were able to listen to an outlook on farm policy in this new government administration year. I sat down with Joel Newman, President/CEO, American Feed Industry Association, to get some takeaways from his presentation.
Joel says that as he looks at the new administration in Washington there are some opportunities but also some things to put more effort into. The regulations as a result of the Food Safety & Modernization Act as well as efforts to reduce the use of antibiotics in animal production are areas where some fine tuning could be done to make them more effective.
Listen to my interview with Joel to hear more about things like a new farm bill. Are we ready for that yet? Interview with Joel Newman, President/CEO, AFIA
