Our board members are the visible embodiment of our commitment to securing the future of animal agriculture. It is through their dedication to the entire animal agriculture community—and the Alliance—that we are able to achieve our goals and gain real progress toward our mission of safeguarding the future of animal agriculture and its value to society by bridging the communication gap between the farm and food communities.
