Tauer Named SAA Executive Director
Indiana Ag Connection - 08/10/2017

The Soy Aquaculture Alliance (SAA) Board of Directors has named Andy Tauer as the executive director. Tauer assumed the role of interim executive director in May.

"As chairman of the Soy Aquaculture Alliance, I am pleased to announce Andy Tauer has been chosen as the executive director to lead SAA into the future challenge of increasing the world's seafood supply through utilization of soy protein as a sustainable feed source," said Bill Bayliss, president of SAA.

While serving as director of livestock and aquaculture for Indiana Soybean Alliance and Indiana Corn Marketing Council, Tauer has worked with industry partners to grow value-added soybean demand through increased livestock and aquaculture in the state of Indiana. He also has overseen checkoff-funded research on improving soybean meal nutrition qualities for livestock and aquaculture. Tauer has been actively involved in promotion of meat, poultry/eggs and exports for Indiana corn and soybean farmers.

While serving as interim executive director of SAA, Tauer has been working to grow the membership base of SAA as well as forge relationships with industry leaders.

"I am looking forward to continue working with the industry to increase the demand for U.S. Soy Protein in the aquaculture industry," Tauer explained.

In conjunction with his responsibilities as the lead for SAA, Tauer will continue serving the Indiana Soybean Alliance and Corn Marketing Council by dedicating part of his time to the role of Livestock Director.

Comprised of both Qualified State Soybean Boards (QSSBs) as well as industry partners, SAA is working to make US soybeans the most widely trusted and commonly used aquafeed ingredient. The Soy Aquaculture Alliance relies on strategic guidance from board members, who represent both the U.S. soybean farmers and the aquaculture industry.
