Date Posted: January 16, 2013
Manhattan, KS—Kansas State University Department of Grain Science and Industry is teaming up with the American Feed Industry Association and to host the AFIA-KSU Advanced Feed Manufacturing course.
This partnership has remained strong since KSU and AFIA started hosting feed manufacturing courses in 1976.
Individuals with feed industry experience who understand the basic principles of feed manufacturing are encouraged to attend.
The AFIA-KSU Advanced Feed Manufacturing course is focused on feed safety and will be held February 18-21, 2013 at the International Grains Program Conference Center.
With the constantly changing feed safety regulations, it is important for those involved in the feed industry to stay up to date, says Carlos Campabadal, course manager and IGP program specialist in feed manufacturing and grain storage.
“The Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) has a big impact on the feed industry therefore understanding feed safety will help feed mills better execute the mandates,” Campabadal says.
This course will include formal presentations and hands-on workshops covering topics such as quality control, worker safety, molds and mycotoxins, good manufacturing practices, troubleshooting, and specific equipment operation related to feed safety.
The instructors for this course are a combination of individuals from Kansas State University as well as within the feed industry.
“It is a great opportunity for the feed industry to update and learn new items related to feed manufacturing and focusing on all the trends of producing safe feed,” says Campabadal.
Individuals who want to break down the feed manufacturing process and learn about the updated safety practices should consider registering says Campabadal.
