Feed 2021: Present and Future Challenges

Feed2021 is the seventh in a series of conferences initiated by the European Union’s leading reference laboratories and research institutions in animal feed.

Originally planned to be held in June 2020, the challenging situation of the COVID-19 outbreak required a postponement of the conference.

In 2021, the FEED Conference will take place anyway. And if you cannot come to us, FEED2021 will come to you!

The conference will be held virtually, so wherever you are, join us and register!

We are looking forward to welcoming as many of you as possible at the 7th International FEED Conference, taking place from June 23rd to June 24th, 2021!

As seen in 2020 the availability of sufficient and safe feedingstuff is still a key challenge in modern agriculture. While the topic of undesirable substances in feed remains a major issue, the globalisation of the feed business has further reinforced the need for efficient tools for traceability of feed ingredients. Moreover, the constantly increasing demand for food from animal origin, along with limited resources triggers the need for evaluating new sources of feed ingredients such as insects and efficient feed production. Additionally, the impact of climate change on feed production should be also taken into account. Keeping the feed safe and sustainable therefore requires a multidisciplinary approach, bringing together allstakeholders, including the industry.

The Organization Committee of this International Feed Conference tried to cover the current interesting areas for animal feed, which will be presented within the following five sessions:

  • Feed Safety
  • Feed Fraud and Feed Authenticity
  • Natural Toxins and Impact of Climate Change
  • Sustainability and Circular Economy in the Area of Feed
  • Impact of Feed on Animal Health and Welfare

The final draft of the program is now available, please see the  „Scientific program“

In today’s world, sharing of scientific knowledge, research findings, laboratory methods and strategies within the scientific community has become a necessity. The aim of this conference is to bring scientists, researchers, laboratory personnel, policy-makers from governmental and non-governmental organizations and people from industry on a single platform where they can share their knowledge, scientific experiences and experiments on subjects crucial to animal feed. With the participation of international experts, we hope that productive discussions will stimulate new creative ideas to translate new discoveries into better practice and application.
