ADSA works through coalitions and with strategic partners to advance our policy goals. In addition to FASS, the following are key partners in this effort.
The AFRI Coalition is a coalition of scientific societies and science advocacy organizations who support full appropriation of the Agriculture and Food Research Initiative (AFRI) competitive grants program at $700 million per year.
The Animal Agriculture Coalition (AAC) represents the major national livestock and poultry producer and allied industry organizations in the U.S. It is our mission to represent the best interests of all animal agriculture.
CAST is a nonprofit 501 (c)(3) organization composed of scientific societies and many individual, student, company, nonprofit, and associate society members. CAST's Board is composed of representatives of the scientific societies, commercial companies, and nonprofit or trade organizations, and an executive committee. The primary work of CAST is the publication of task force reports, commentary papers, special publications, and issue papers written by scientists from many disciplines.
The Coalition on Funding Agricultural Research Missions (CoFARM) is a broadly based coalition united by a commitment to advance and sustain investment in our nation's fundamental and applied agricultural research. CoFARM was formed in 1990 because the benefits of food and agricultural research were undervalued. Since then, public investment in agricultural research has become stagnant and may be inadequate to meet the challenges of the next century.
National C-FAR is a nonprofit, nonpartisan, consensus-based and customer-led coalition that brings food, agriculture, nutrition, conservation and natural resource stakeholders together with the food and agriculture research community, serving as a forum and a unified voice in support of sustaining and increasing public investment at the national level in food and agricultural research, extension and education
Dairy Management Inc.™ (DMI) is the domestic and international planning and management organization that builds demand for dairy products on behalf of America’s nearly 56,000 dairy producers.
