The American Feed Industry Association (AFIA) and Feedstuffs granted the 2017 Feed Facility of the Year (FFOY) award in four categories, each award going to one company in the ides of January. ADM Animal Nutrition of Cordele, Ga. is selected as the winner of the commercial dry livestock feed plant category; Sanderson Farms of Collins, Miss., as the winner of the integrator category; Westway Feed Products of Dimmit as the winner of the liquid feed plant category for the second consecutive year; and Animix LLC of Juneau, Wis., as the winner of the premix manufacturing plant category. And at the end of the month during AFIA’s Feed Production Education Program, which will be held as part of IPPE, the Sanderson Farms of Collins, Miss. was selected to be the overall FFOY winner. Formerly the Feed Mill of the Year award, AFIA and Feedstuffs modified the program in 2016, and it is now recognized as a benchmarking program for the animal food industry. Representing each of the several types of feed manufacturing facilities within AFIA’s membership, the improved format compares and recognizes top-performing facilities in four categories: commercial dry livestock, integrator, liquid feed and premix. From those, the FFOY award is selected. “Each of these facilities has shown it is deserving of being at the top of its respective category in the 2017 Feed Facility of the Year program,” said Gary Huddleston, AFIA’s director of feed manufacturing and regulatory affairs. “After months of reviewing applications and touring facilities to determine these winners, AFIA is thrilled to announce them.”
