“NIAA provides important leadership to the industry, and its unique venue addresses important issues in a comprehensive, inclusive manner. That’s more important now than ever as animal agriculture has never been more dynamic nor faced with so much potential for change.”
"NIAA fills an important niche as it provides essential information to those within the industry and serves as a forum for the discussion of issues important to the livestock industries. The need for sharing of information and collaboration with the livestock industries in order to address livestock health issues and other challenges cannot be underscored enough.”
"NIAA has less political involvement than any organization you can belong to. We get down to the essential issues and the problems at hand, and I like that."
"Animal agriculture is a multi-disciplinary, complex, global industry. NIAA offers for me both convenient and concise information and an opportunity to help set truly critical priorities for the future of animal agriculture, and therefore hopefully help make a true difference."
"We can’t make long-term research decisions and long-term business decisions without knowing where the industry is heading a year or two years from now. This organization gives us the opportunity to look at that landscape and predict with a bit more clarity where we want to be a year or two from now."
"Being a part of this organization gives us an opportunity to be in a forum of a lot of like-minded organizations. NIAA closes the barrier for groups to work together."
"Members can make a difference by their participation in NIAA because the ability to influence policies and decisions that benefit animal agriculture is tremendous. The more you put into it, the more you get out."
"The opportunity for continuing education through NIAA, I think, is an interesting and exciting concept. In my capacity as association executive, and specifically related in agriculture and the agribusiness field, there aren’t a lot of opportunities for that type of education. So, I am excited that this is a direction NIAA is taking and I hope to take advantage of that."
"If we try to live in our own world and make decisions based on a small amount of input, the decisions may come faster but the quality of output is not as good. I see NIAA as being essentially a forum where different groups involved in livestock production can come together to resolve issues that really take input and discussion from all segments of industry and NIAA is where that happens."
"I think NIAA has begun a new era in agriculture and we have an opportunity to do this together. Building consensus among many groups is going to be a great opportunity for us all."
