The Association thereby promotes new ideas and innovative procedures and urges their adoption by member agencies, for uniformity.
Purpose and Function of AAFCO:

The purpose of the corporation shall be to establish and maintain an Association through which officials of any state, dominion, federal or other governmental agency and employees thereof charged with a responsibility in enforcing the laws regulating the production, labeling, distribution, or sale of animal feeds or livestock remedies may unite to explore the problems encountered in administering such laws, to develop just and equitable standards, definitions and policies to be followed in enforcing such laws, to promote uniformity in such laws, regulations and enforcement policies, and to cooperate with members of the industry producing such products in order to promote the effectiveness and usefulness of such products."



It sounds like a feed industry lobbying group. You know, give our legislators and congressmen money so that the feed industry gets tax cuts or credits and no government regulation. (I KNOW, I won't get any more political than that!)
