MANHATTAN, KANSAS, U.S — The IGP Institute will host an in-depth training on feed manufacturing technology and an interactive aspect on modern-feed processing. It will be held June 18-21.

The IGP-KSU feed manufacturing course is targeted toward feed mill owners, managers, supervisors, operators, merchandisers, equipment manufacturers, maintenance personnel and managers of livestock and poultry facilities.

“The IGP Feed Manufacturing course is designed to provide participants with technical information and the latest trends in scientific research that can help them improve their day-by-day operations,” said Carlos Campabadal, the feed manufacturing and grain quality management outreach specialist.

The course will focus on a variety of topics, including grain storage and pest control; particle size reduction, batching and mixing; extrusion drying and cooling; effect of feed processing on animal nutrition; pelleting, cooling and crumbling; feed and ingredient handling; feed plant design; energy conversation in the feed mill; steam generation systems; mold and mycotoxins.

“Our state-of-the-art feed mill helps participants work with the latest technology in feed manufacturing,” Campabadal said.

Along with KSU faculty presentations, this training also includes tours of the O.H. Kruse Feed Technology Innovation Center, the Bioprocessing and Industrial Value Added Products Innovation Center (BIVAP) and the KSU dairy and swine facilities.
