Registration is now open for the American Feed Industry Association’s Equipment Manufacturers Conference, being held Nov. 7-9 in San Antonio, Texas. Hosted by AFIA’s Equipment Manufacturers Committee, this annual conference brings together equipment designers, manufacturers and installers and feed production professionals from across the United States.
“For more than 20 years, this event has brought together leaders in feed equipment manufacturing, offering a unique opportunity for networking and education on issues and trends relevant to their segment of the industry,” said Gary Huddleston, AFIA’s director of feed manufacturing and regulatory affairs. “This year, the focus will be on navigating the future and there are a lot of great speakers discussing emerging issues.”
The three-day event kicks off with the annual golf tournament, which raises money for the Institute for Feed Education and Research’s EMC scholarship fund, a program designed to encourage college students to consider careers in the feed or grain sciences. Educational programs at the conference will also include an update on policy issues being discussed in Washington, D.C., presentations on retaining employees, creating the right culture, and internship and apprenticeship programs, a panel discussion on equipment manufacturing challenges and opportunities and more.
