The American Feed Industry Association along with the Department of Grain Science and Industry at Kansas State University have again partnered to offer another HACCP Feed Manufacturing Short Course, “Establishing a HACCP Program for the Feed Industry.” The course will be held Oct. 14-17 in Manhattan, Kansas.
The short course focuses on the development of a Hazard Analysis Critical Control Points (HACCP) plan for all sectors of the feed industry, including feed mill managers, quality assurance personnel and ingredient suppliers. View the program brochure.
K-State, in partnership with the American Feed Industry Association and the National Grain and Feed Association, has held Feed Manufacturing Short Courses since 1976. These courses are taught by a unique blend of individuals from K-State and within the feed and allied industries and provide in-depth training on all aspects associated with feed manufacturing.
The registration fee of $525 covers course materials and select meals. Online registration is available at www.afia.org under “Upcoming Events.” Due to limited space, early registration is recommended as the HACCP short courses often sell out.
For questions, please contact K-State’s Carlos Campabadal at (785) 532-3187 or Keith Epperson, AFIA vice president of manufacturing and training, at (703) 558-3568.
