The National Institute for Animal Agriculture (NIAA) will be hosting their meeting April 8-11, exploring this year's theme Animal Agriculture; Innovation & Technology; Engaging the Consumers at the Des Moines Marriott Downtown Hotel.
The average consumer is now multiple generations removed from the farm, and modern food production is often misunderstood. One of the greatest challenges facing agriculture is improving the consumer's perception of modern agriculture.
Innovation and technology are constantly developing to help animal agriculture improve animal health, welfare, production sustainability and cost efficiency. Animal agriculture and stewardship go hand in hand, and today's technology innovations are aimed at continuing that partnership.
NIAA will also hold its Annual Business Membership Meeting during the Conference as well as Committee / Council Meetings. NIAA's Technology Showcase will be featured with displays of interest to all participants.
