Feed Legislative and Regulatory Affairs Committee

This committee addresses federal, state and international legislative and regulatory issues affecting feed and feed ingredient manufacturers and integrators, including animal feed safety and world animal health codes.  It inter­acts extensively with the Food and Drug Administration, the Association of American Feed Control Officials and state feed regulatory agencies on feed safety, model feed laws, labeling, ingredient definitions and other issues.

Feed Manufacturing and Technology Committee

This committee addresses operations issues and technological developments important to the manufacturing operations of commercial feed mills, feed ingredient firms, and livestock and poultry integrators.  Among other things, it evaluates the latest developments in product safety, quality, production and manufacturing technology; interacts with universities; and provides education and communication on feed operations issues.  It provides input on updates to the NGFA’s first-of-its-kind Model Feed Quality Assurance Program; develops the NGFA’s approach to new quality systems (such as hazard analysis and critical control point, ISO 9000 and global quality assurance systems); and promotes methods to improve plant operation efficiencies and control costs.

Biofuels Committee

This committee identifies trends and addresses issues in the biofuels industry significant to NGFA-member companies, including those related to the production and use of biofuel co-products used as feed ingredients.  It also keeps abreast of the needs of NGFA-member companies involved in biofuels production as they relate to the grain, feed and grain processing industry.  The committee refers issues and recommendations important to the biofuels sector concerning such matters as grain availability, co-product utilization, transportation/logistics, and safety, health and environmental compliance to the appropriate NGFA committees for review and action.  And it develops plans for attracting additional biofuels companies into the NGFA membership.
