1. Updating Our Feed and Pet Food Consumption Data

This year, the Institute for Feed Education and Research (IFEEDER) initiated work on a project to update its pet food and feed ingredient consumption reports. The goal is to provide transparent data, quantifying the numerous ingredients used to feed livestock, poultry, fish and pets in the United States. These reports serve as some of the best reference materials available for those discussing matters impacting the U.S. animal food value chain. IFEEDER is the only public charity investing in this kind of research to inform decisions in the animal food industry.

2. Enhancing Swine Nutrition: Important Considerations for Updating the Nutrient Requirements of Swine Report

Since 1944, the National Research Council, and now the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine (NASEM), has published 11 editions of the Nutrient Requirements of Swine. As the primary reference for developing swine diets, the 12th edition will be a valued resource to feed industry members, their customers, swine nutritionists and researchers. The Institute for Feed Education and Research (IFEEDER), with the National Pork Board, National Corn Growers Association and United Soybean Board, is providing funds and industry feedback to support the revision

3. Feed Innovation Can Lower Environmental Footprints

Feedstuff production on the farm may be a leading source of the environmental footprint for livestock, poultry, horses and pets, but it doesn’t mean it will be the best solution for reducing it. Regenerative agriculture, climate-smart practices and efforts to improve soil health are agricultural practices that receive a lot of attention by stakeholders for reducing t animal feed’s footprint, but I would argue that we must give equal attention to some of the animal food industry innovations in the pipeline that will offer solutions as well.

5. When You Do Good Work, Sometimes You Make Headlines

This week, the Institute for Feed Education and Research (IFEEDER) made headlines for the research work we support at the Clarity and Leadership for Environmental Awareness and Research (CLEAR) Center at the University of California-Davis.  Despite detractors’ efforts to discredit research underway, we are proud of the work we do with public institutions, such as the CLEAR Center. We can’t address food security while reducing our environmental impact independently. We must engage.

6. Industry Stakeholders Convene to Advance Feed Sustainability

The Institute for Feed Education and Research (IFEEDER) and World Wildlife Fund (WWF) hosted industry stakeholders September 28-29 at Chr. Hansen in Milwaukee, Wis., to collaboratively identify ways to achieve greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reduction and other commitments (e.g., water, land use change, biodiversity) important to the animal food industry and its customers through continuous improvements in feed systems.

7. 3 Things to Know About Life Cycle Assessments (LCA) for your Products or Production System

There is a growing interest for animal food companies to better understand the impacts of their operations and supply chains to identify market opportunities and meet expectations of downstream stakeholders. Utilizing life cycle assessment (LCA) tools are a great way to assess the footprint of operations and existing product lines. They can also be used to innovate and seize on growing demand for sustainable products in the marketplace.

8. Livestock Feed is an Undervalued Opportunity for Food Companies to Achieve Sustainability Goals

Most of the environmental impact for animal protein is embedded in the feed that animals eat. By reducing feed impacts, food companies have an opportunity to make significant progress toward climate and sustainability goals.

9. New Report Examines Impact of Increased Use of Non-GM Feed on U.S. Animal Feed Industry

The Institute for Feed Education and Research (IFEEDER) released new research today which shows that if more U.S. food companies are to require feed for their livestock and poultry be free from genetically modified (GM) ingredients, then greenhouse gas emissions on farms could rise, grain elevator and feed mill product handling and production requirements would be greater, and the price of meat, milk and eggs for consumers could increase.
