22/05/2017: Executive milling course coming this summer

The IGP Institute teams up with Buhler, Inc. to offer milling course in Spanish

The milling industry is constantly improving and integrating modern technologies with people who are passionate for developing the best products domestically and globally.

Kansas State University’s IGP Institute, in conjunction with Buhler, Inc., will host its Buhler–KSU Spanish Executive Milling course August 28 – September 1, 2017 at the IGP Institute Conference Centre in Manhattan, Kansas. 


 
Participants engage in hands-on learning at Kansas State University’s
Hal Ross Flour Mill.
The course is designed as an introduction to flour milling and flour quality, grain cleaning and functionality. Jason Watt, Buhler instructor of milling, explains that the course is an asset for those wanting to broaden their knowledge of the flour milling industry.

“It is a great course for new managers, sales personnel or customer service representatives as well as anyone wanting to learn the basics of milling. This course will give them an understanding of the flour milling process and allow them to be more successful in the industry,” says Mr Watt.

Course topics for this training include raw materials, cleaning systems, milling systems, finished product handling and storage, performance evaluation in a flour mill and factors that influence an investment decision and basics in aspiration.

This course will also include hands-on exercises demonstrating the influences of wheat characteristics on yield and mill performance, special systems for mycotoxin reduction and top quality flour production, machine and flow sheet technology, system design and various tempering philosophies, among other topics.

Participants do not need any past milling experience to take the course. The course is designed for mill owners, directors and managers. Former course participant, Eugenio de la Mora, enjoyed the many aspects of the course.

“As a planning director, people report to me for financing, plant design and food technology. The theory used in this course was complete and helpful. The IGP Institute has left a tremendous impression with the knowledgeable people and outstanding facilities,” Mr Mora says.

This is just one example of the trainings offered through IGP Institute. In addition to grain processing and flour milling, IGP offers courses in the areas of grain marketing and risk management, and feed manufacturing and grain quality management.
