27/07/2018: IGP Institute and RAPCO team up to offer swine nutrition training

With the global consumer demand for pork on the rise, there is a continued need for swine producers to raise efficient pigs that maximise nutritional inputs.

In meeting the goal of increased education for the Latin America swine industry, the US Soybean Export Council joined with the IGP Institute to host the Regional Agriculture Production Course (RAPCO) in Swine Nutrition. This training was held July 17-20, 2018 at Kansas State University.

"The IGP Institute has been conducting RAPCO courses since 2011; however, this is the first time that we offered one on swine nutrition. It was a great success as the participants were pleased with the quality of the lectures and tours," says Carlos Campabadal, IGP Institute feed manufacturing and quality management curriculum manager.
