THE American Feed Industry Assn. (AFIA), in partnership with the International Grains Program of the Kansas State University (KSU) department of grain science and industry, will host two educational programs in February and April in Manhattan, Kan.
The February course will focus on advanced pelleting, while the April program — which is also sponsored by the National Grain & Feed Assn. — will concentrate on the development of a hazard analysis and critical control points (HACCP) plan for all industry sectors.
The AFIA-KSU Advanced Pelleting Course, Feb. 10-13, will discuss the important concepts necessary for an optimal and efficient pelleting operation system in a feed manufacturing business. The interactive program is ideal for feed mill operators, managers, supervisors, merchandisers, equipment manufacturers, maintenance personnel and managers of livestock, swine and poultry facilities.
The second course, Establishing a HACCP Program for the Feed Industry, will be held April 14-17. The program is designed for all individuals within the industry looking to implement a HACCP plan but particularly pertains to feed mill managers, quality assurance personnel and ingredient suppliers.
