Busy day "on the Hill"

ASAS hosted a Snack & Fact briefing yesterday in Washington D.C. Guest speakers Dr. John Vicini and Dr. Kevin Folta discussed “GMO Crops in Animal Nutrition” with an audience of congressional staffers.

Our guest speakers accompanied Dr. Casey Bradley and Dr. Penny Riggs, ASAS Public Policy Committee, and Mr. Walt Smith, ASAS D.C. representative, on visits to the congressional offices of Rep. Ted Yoho (FL) and Rep. Steve Womack (AR).

The day also included an afternoon visit at the headquarters of the American Feed Industry Association in Arlington, Va.

ASAS is planning the next Snack & Fact briefing for early December. Watch for details soon!
