The IGP-KSU Grain Elevators Managers course is beneficial for those who are responsible for supervising grain managers. The focus of this course is based on the science behind the practices used in grain management.
“This course covers the different technical areas that are important to understand for day-to-day activities involving grain handling and storage operations,” said Carlos Campabadal, feed manufacturing and grain quality management curriculum manager at the IGP Institute. “Our focus is on grain elevator managers and other personnel that play a role in this type of operation. The course helps new managers break down and evaluate the practices used by previous supervisors.”
“We had a diverse group allowing us to intermingle and learn about our different markets, which helped us understand different styles of operations,” said Harry Franklin, manager trainee for Bunge. “The course brought out all of our differences so we could learn from them.”Campabadal noted, “In this course, we had a core group of participants from grain elevators and co-ops, but we also had managers of river facilities, feed mills, flour mills and grain merchandisers.”
