Animal agriculture leaders are prepared to meet the needs of a changing world where transparency and earning consumer trust is an ongoing priority

Kansas City, Mo. (February 9, 2022) — The National Institute for Animal Agriculture (NIAA) has opened registration for the 2022 Annual Conference in Kansas City, Missouri from April 20-22. Join fellow animal agriculture leaders at the opening reception for a chef-guided meal that explores the effects genetics, feed ingredients, production practices, and more have on the farm-to-table eating experience. Space is limited to the first 50 registrants.   

Whether it’s securing protein for all, sustainably producing protein, or innovatively meeting the needs of many, there is never a shortage of critical topics to address. The 2022 NIAA Annual Conference, Producing Protein for a Food Insecure & Uncertain World – Leading Food Security, Sustainable Production, and Innovation, will convene leaders in animal agriculture as we explore, discuss, and develop solutions to industry challenges.

Transparency is increasingly important while earning and maintaining consumer trust is an ongoing priority,” said Chelsea Good, Livestock Marketing Association, NIAA board member, and Annual Conference planning committee member.
