“This course is a great example of the commitment of the IGP Institute and USSEC to train U.S. soybean and soybean meal buyers in advanced feed manufacturing topics that helps them improve their process,” said Carlos Campabadal, feed manufacturing and grain quality specialist and course coordinator.
Participants also toured Midwest Ag Services Feed Mill in Seneca, Kansas, U.S., and applied their knowledge in KSU’s O.H. Kruse Feed Technology Center during a workshop that covered particle size determination, mixing uniformity and pellet quality determination.“We’ve learned good practices from the course in feed manufacturing, safety and quality control and how to manage the products in the process,” said Mustafa Ben Rejeb, technical sales manager at Sanders in Tunisia. “These practices now help me understand what we have to do to have the best quality of pellets in the process, which will help me in my job.”
