compliance difficult,
resource intensive.
and the preventive controls associated with it represented the biggest changes. While the rule required
specific measures to prevent, say Salmonella, many
feed manufacturers were in good shape to comply with
these rules, particularly large companies that had one
or more employees dedicated to feed safety.
Many companies were able to repackage existing
teams or initiatives to achieve FSMA compliance,
Davis says. In some cases, feed companies needed to
write down and formalize existing procedures. Many,
at the very least, found they needed to elevate controls
for specific risks such as Salmonella where previously
individual risks were treated with broader initiatives.
"Maybe they had their own plan or followed
some other system, but to comply, you had to convert
some of that over to meet the requirements with the
language," Davis says. "I think that affected more
facilities than anything else."

FSMA prompts closures, consolidation
While Davis says he's not aware of any feed mill
closures attributed to FSMA, he also acknowledges

that most of AFIA's members represent large mills and
manufacturers. Representatives at the other end of the
industry tell a different story.
"I'm aware of a number of companies that, because
of the FSMA requirements and probably other factors,
have chosen to close facilities or consolidate into fewer
facilities as a means to hopefully be able to comply
because there is a cost involved," Fairfield says.
At facilities that did not already have a feed safety
plan of some kind on hand - mostly smaller mills,
Fairfield says - the hazard and prevention provisions of
FSMA taxed company resources. Consolidation eliminated the need to develop plans for multiple facilities in
some cases and it also addressed a manpower problem.
"To have someone who is qualified to identify hazards
and implement controls," Fairfield says, presented a
significant challenge, "particularly for smaller feed mills
that don't have the background to do that type of thing."
Smaller companies also often lacked the financial ability
to hire the expertise necessary to fill the gap.
Even those who could bring in a consultant, Fairfield
says, still faced a staffing problem. "These are new
