15/09/2016: William Hillis inducted into liquid feed hall of fame

The American Feed Industry Association is pleased to announce William Hillis, Ph.D., as its 2016 Liquid Feed Hall of Fame inductee.

Mr Hillis received the highest award offered by the AFIA Liquid Feed Committee and the liquid feed industry today during AFIA's Liquid Feed Symposium luncheon in Memphis, Tennessee.

The Liquid Feed Symposium is the country's largest gathering of liquid supplement leaders in manufacturing, nutrition, quality, sales and marketing.

  
Bill Hillis, the 2016 liquid feed hall of fame recipient,
makes his acceptance speech.

"Bill's been a dedicated member, not just to the liquid feed industry, but to our association, and during an instrumental time of transition," said AFIA President and CEO Joel G. Newman.

"He was a speaker at several Liquid Feed Symposiums while serving on the committee, and oversaw the 16th annual symposium in 1982 when he chaired the Liquid Feed Committee. Bill also presented at AFIA's Feed Industry Institute, an event created to educate new employees within feed, on molasses and liquid feed in 1986," stated Mr Newman.

Mr Hillis is the owner of Trophy Wildlife Supplements, a company that produces dried deer supplement blocks. Prior, he was employed at Four Seasons Marketing, LLC, Pacific Molasses Company/PM Ag and the National Molasses Company.

Mr Hillis is credited with collaborating with the US Food and DrugAdministration in developing standards for clearance of new additives, monensin and bovatec, in liquid feeds.

While at the National Molasses Company, he also helped develop nutrition standards and quality control programs.

During that period of employment (1972-77), the National Molasses Company grew to be the largest liquid feed manufacturer of its time.
