Wednesday, June 24, 2020
AFIA canceled the in-person Preventive Controls Qualified Individual training session, set to take place in July, and the Liquid Feed Symposium, scheduled for September. In the meantime, the association is pivoting some programs to virtual events, to hear breaking news information about the industry and engage with some of the industry’s top leaders.
The Purchasing and Ingredient Suppliers Webinar Series will take place for one hour each day the week of July 20. The latest information on the impact that COVID-19 is having on the crop and livestock markets and consumer demand, insights on what’s happening in politics and the latest biosecurity tips to protect from animal diseases will be available on PISC 2.0.
The Feed Industry Institute program provides a great educational forum to learn the basics of animal nutrition and the process for manufacturing feed/pet food and getting it to market. The course begins on August 17 with a live question-and-answer session on September 23.
AFIA/KSU-500 - Fundamentals of Feed Manufacturing – is a six-week course that is offered quarterly and provides participants with an in-depth understanding of feed manufacturing.
