10/12/2015: Cochran Fellowship Program on Cereals and Feed Management
Participants from Morocco toured the USDA Federal Grain Inspection Service facilities in Kansas City, Missouri
The IGP Institute hosted four participants for the Cochran Program on Cereals and Feed Management for Morocco on November 9-19, 2015. The course covered topics including grain handling technology, post-harvest management of wheat, corn and soybeans, pest control management, moulds and mycotoxins, US grain grading and contract systems for exports.

“The IGP Institute has an international reputation,” says Abderrafi Kchit, course participant.

“Between science, research, extension and the farm activities, I realised that we don’t have this interaction in Morocco and I think we should. This integration is very important.”

Throughout the 10-day course, participants spent their time in the classroom and traveling to several leading agricultural venues in Kansas and Louisiana. The facilities visited included Ron Roth Farm, Manhattan Farmers Coop (MKC), ADM Grain Export Facility, Cargill Westwego Export Facility, USDA Federal Grain Inspection Service and Thionville Laboratories.

Participants also learned about grain management techniques from on-site trainings at the OH Kruse Feed Technology Centre, Hal Ross Flour Mill and BIVAP. The IGP Institute is proud to partner with the USDA Cochran Program on activities that highlight the advantages of US grains.

This is just one example of the customised trainings offered by the IGP Institute. In addition to feed manufacturing and grain quality management, IGP offers courses in the areas of grain processing and flour milling, and grain marketing and risk management.
As part of the field trip to New Orleans, participants in the Cochran Program on Cereals and Feed Management for Morocco toured the ADM Destrehan grain export facility
