Who are we?

The Alabama Feed and Grain Association is a non-profit trade association representing every segment of the feed and grain industries in Alabama.  AFGA was organized in 1983 when members of the Alabama Feed Association and Alabama Grain Dealers Association voted unanimously to merge their organizations to form the Alabama Feed and Grain Association.  The Additional strength gained by this merger enabled this Association to be an effective “spokesperson” for the Alabama Feed and Grain Industry.

A major commitment of the Alabama Feed and Grain Association is to stimulate increased production of feed and grain in Alabama.  This commitment includes working with scientist at Auburn University to develop and implement a complete new grain production program that will benefit all segments of Alabama’s agriculture.

Other Association activities include serving as the industry watchdog for any state or federal legislation affecting the feed and grain industries, source of information for industry on industry matters, annual convention, web site for current events, and AF&GA scholarships provided to young people entering the field of agriculture are evidence of dedication to the growth, development, and improvement of the feed and grain industry.  The Alabama Feed and Grain Association seeks to ensure the most favorable business conditions for its membership by uniting the strength of individual members.
