AgGateway’s Grain & Feed Council consists of companies in the grain, feed, oilseed and renewable fuel segments of the agricultural industry or in the industries or segments serving these segments in electronic business. The council represents, at a high level, the supply chain from delivery of grain from the producer to the delivery of feed to the producers.
To identify, develop and implement standards and guidelines intended to increase eBusiness efficiencies in the grain, feed and processing industries. The focus is on promoting food chain safety and confidence through review and recommendation of improved business processes, thereby reducing supply chain costs and increasing profitability through electronic business efficiencies in the grain and feed processing industries from producer to processor.
The council has two working groups, a Grain Working Group and a Feed Working Group, to look at pain points within the specific sectors. Each working group meets at least twice a year, and more often depending on the amount of work to be done. At least once a year these working groups consider the progress that has been made toward the council’s mission and their plans (setting goals) for the next year to help progress the mission.
Our top activity is tracking commodity movement for field-to-process through the CART project (see below). We also work with resources like the American Feed Industry Association (AFIA) to pass on information on government regulations to our membership. The council has members involved in the following industry eBusiness projects concerned with the feed and grain industries:
