The SFT was founded in 1967 as a regular forum for the forward thinkers in the animal nutrition industry, to identify advances in knowledge and technology and to offer them an opportunity to discuss the importance and implications of these changes.
There are currently about 320 members; membership is on an individual basis, not corporate. One of the ‘rules’ of the society is that blatant advertising or promotion of branded products is not allowed.
