The IGP Institute hosts Zinpro employees from China in feed manufacturing course

The focus of the Kansas State University IGP Institute is to serve as the global grain education center. Along with teaching courses focused on flour milling, feed manufacturing and risk management, the faculty are also able to customise a course topic to meet a specific client’s needs.

That was the case with the recent feed manufacturing training held August 29–September 1, 2017 for Zinpro clients from China.

Six participants, including one host from Zinpro, attended the course and were able to discuss a variety of topics including:

- ingredient quality and the importance of a quality control program
- batching and mixing; particle size reduction
 - the effects of feed processing on monogastric nutrition
- steam basics, conditioning and pelleting
- pellet cooling and crumbling and post-process liquid applications
- feed safety
- grain and feed ingredient storage
- molds and mycotoxins
- performance indicators in feed manufacturing

“The Zinpro China Feed Manufacturing course was a tailored training focused on the technical needs expressed by Zinpro China,” says Carlos Campabadal, IGP Institute feed manufacturing and grain quality specialist.

“At IGP, we provide technical trainings based on our clients’ requests. We are looking forward to continue providing technical assistance to Zinpro and its clients.”

Participants also engaged in a feed mill workshop and tours to Mid-Kansas Coop elevator in Manhattan, Kansas; Lance Rezac’s farm near Onaga, Kansas; and Midwest Ag Service in Seneca, Kansas.

Along with customised trainings, the IGP Institute offers courses in the areas of flour milling and grain processing, feed manufacturing and grain quality management, and grain marketing and risk management.
