AFIA to host trade webcast

The American Feed Industry Association will present a webcast on Nov. 13 from 1-3 p.m. EST entitled "From Your Floor to Their Door – Understanding the Trade Maze."

This educational presentation on exporting procedures will feature Dr. Joyce Bowling, assistant director of the National Center for Import and Export of the Agriculture Department's Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service. Dr. Bowling's team represents the U.S. when negotiating trade requirements with other countries for animal products, such as feeds, feed ingredients and pet food.

Designed to help exporters better understand the process of exporting, the webcast will focus on the responsibility of animal product exporters, explain who to contact within NCIE with questions related to health certificates and facility inspections, and provide receiving-country requirements, including important updates on current trade requirements with Canada, Mexico and China.

Questions may be submitted by the participants before, during or after the webcast. Following the broadcast, each participant will be sent a copy of the webcast in CD format. Registration fees for AFIA members are $275 per person; non-members $550. The deadline for registration is Nov. 11.
