Feed Manufacturing and Technology Committee

Committee Chairman: Matt Frederking, Vice President Regulatory Affairs & Quality Assurance, Mid American Pet Food, Mt. Pleasant, TX
NGFA Staff Liaisons: Dave Fairfield and Jim Seibert

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.
