The American Feed Industry Association recently submitted comments regarding the Livestock Environmental Assessment Performance draft guidelines.

Specifically, the comments submitted to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations were regarding the animal feed supply chain. AFIA notes the group was pleased the guidelines seemed well constructed, including their breadth and depth. AFIA officials say the report, developed for a more harmonized approach to Life Cycle Assessments in the animal feed industry, takes into account the various production sectors involved. AFIA senior vice president of legislative and regulatory affairs, Richard Sellers, stated “We worked with our membership to review and draft comments because we want to make this document applicable to North American agriculture.”
