WOOSTER, OHIO, US — A nine-month certificate in feed mill operations will be offered starting in the fall semester 2024 at the Ohio State Agricultural Technical Institute (ATI) in Wooster, Ohio, US.

Students will take classes in feeding and nutrition of horses, swine, small ruminants, and dairy and beef cattle. They also will study feed mill operations, quality assurance, feed technology, formulation and safety. The feed mill at the College of Food, Agricultural and Environmental Sciences on the Wooster campus will provide hands-on experience.

The certificate can be added on for students enrolled in associate degree programs in animal science or agronomy to enhance their position in the job market after graduation.

“Feed milling is a global industry and critical component to livestock production,” said Kris Boone, assistant dean and director of ATI. “Our feed mill is very productive and employs ATI students. It also provides feed for OSU livestock throughout the state and works with industry in research and development. Now it will serve as a teaching asset as well.”
