AFIA, KSU to host two education programs

One to focus on advanced pelleting, the other on HACCP planning

The American Feed Industry Association (AFIA) in partnership with the International Grains Program of the Department of Grain Science and Industry at Kansas State University (KSU) will host two education programs in February and April in Manhattan, Kan. The February course will focus on advanced pelleting while the April program will concentrate on the development of a Hazard Analysis Critical Control Points (HACCP) plan for all industry sectors. 

The AFIA-KSU Advanced Pelleting Course, February 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.
