The interactive courses, both held in Manhattan, Kan., are taught by a unique blend of instructors who provide in-depth training on all aspects of the industry associated with feed manufacturing and feed safety.
The AFIA-KSU Advanced Feed Manufacturing Short Course will be held Oct. 8 11. The course provides participants with an in-depth understanding of the specifics of feed processing. Emphasizing feed safety, this advanced course targets individuals with feed industry experience that understand the basic principles of feed manufacturing.
