In its first conference in Kazakhstan, WISHH showcased how U.S. soy is a leader for producers and suppliers for animal proteins.

ASA’s World Initiative for Soy in Human Health program hosted its first animal feed conference in Kazakhstan, which was sponsored by the Illinois Soybean Association. The conference marks an important milestone as WISHH continues its work into a key emerging market for U.S. soy. Held in the capital Astana, the event showcased how U.S. soy is a leader for producers and suppliers for animal proteins.

Multiple feed mills, along with poultry and livestock producers, attended the conference. As the mills produce feed for aquaculture, poultry and other large animals, the program included an overview of U.S. soybean meal and animal production. WISHH Asia Division director Alan F. Poock also led an introduction to WISHH and discussed why producers and suppliers should purchase U.S. soybeans. Presenting virtually, ISA’s Brian Atteberry further delved into production by providing a deep presentation of how soy is produced in his state and across America. Atteberry also serves Illinois as a representative on the WISHH Program Committee. Carlos Campabadal, Ph.D., gave several presentations on soybean processing methods, feed ingredient storage and production quality control.

The introduction to U.S. soy by WISHH for Kazakhstan builds on the strong potential for U.S. soy trade in the country and is an important first steps in solidifying and building relationships with business leaders.
