The American Feed Industry Association will hold a summer online feed manufacturing course, conducted in partnership with Kansas State University, from August 4 – September 8, 2020. The five-week "AFIA 500: Fundamentals of Feed Manufacturing" distance education program provides an in-depth understanding of the feed manufacturing process, while allowing participants to work at their own pace and engage in online discussions with other students and university instructors.
The course covers a variety of topics, including:
- process flow from particle size reduction.
- batching and mixing.
- conditioning and pelleting.
- post-pellet systems.
- packaging and loadout.
KSU is currently the only U.S. university offering a bachelor of science degree in feed manufacturing and is home to the IGP Institute. For more than 35 years, the IGP Institute has established a worldwide reputation as a center of excellence for international programs related to flour milling and grain processing, feed manufacturing and grain quality management, and grain marketing and risk management focused on corn, grain sorghum, soybeans and wheat. The courses are taught by a diverse blend of individuals from KSU and within the feed and allied industries and provide in-depth training on all aspects related to feed manufacturing.
The deadline to register is Friday, July 24. For more information and registration, visit www.afia.org.
