Kansas State University International Grains Program announces 2013 schedule

Program will offer flour milling course completely in Spanish

Building on the traditions of providing high technology training opportunities in the areas of feed manufacturing and grain management, grain marketing and risk management, and flour milling and grain processing is something the International Grains Program at Kansas State University is aiming for in 2013, according to organizers.

“We are excited about the course offerings for 2013,” said Mark Fowler, International Grains Program associate director. “We strive to be the pulse of the industry by adapting our programs to meet its changing needs.” The 2013 schedule features the program’s standard courses, and builds on the momentum that was set in 2012, according to Fowler. A growth area has been in the distance learning curriculum. The program offered its first introduction to flour milling distance course in 2011 and offered it again in 2012. For the 2013 distance learning, the program will be offering the first-time introduction to flour milling all in Spanish.
