Register for Course on Fundamentals of Feed Manufacturing

1 September 2014, at 8:06am

US - Registration is now open for 'AFIA-500: Fundamentals of Feed Manufacturing'. The distance education programme is sponsored by the American Feed Industry Association (AFIA) and Kansas State University, and is ideal for individuals at all levels interested in gaining a better understanding of the feed manufacturing process.

"The course is taught solely through an e-learning platform. It is self-paced and will last five weeks running from 12 October to 15 November," said Keith Epperson, AFIA vice president of manufacturing and training.

"Even though participants don't have to travel to and from the classroom they will still have the benefit of actively engaging in online discussions about the course materials."

AFIA-500 was developed by the feed technology group in KSU's Department of Grain Science and Industry. Topics include the process flow from particle size reduction to batching and mixing, conditioning and pelleting, boilers, post-pellet systems, packaging, load-out and maintenance.

The course will be taught by Dr Charles Stark of KSU's Department of Grain Science and Industry.

Fifty participants will be accepted into the programme.
