Patrick Vanden Avenne, new president of the European Compound Feed Manufacturers’ Federation (FEFAC), said the European livestock and feed sector needs to produce more and better with less to compete. He presented a plan to strengthen the industry through 2013 to group’s delegates in Hamburg, Germany recently.

Vanden Avenne stated, “We will pursue the development of pre competitive R&D projects leading to the adoption of new feed technology and feed formulation strategies seeking to further improve feed efficiency.”


He also stressed the need to strengthen the competitiveness of EU livestock production.
