The IFF are running their ‘Essentials of feed compounding technologies’ course this year, 5-7 September (10am to 3pm). The course will take place at IFF’s Research Institute of Feed Technology in Braunschweig, Germany.
The feed sector plays a key role within the animal sectors, for both animal husbandry and pets. Health, safe and high-quality feed is essential for healthy animals and the production of tasty and safe animal products such as milk, eggs, and meat. The quality of feed is partly safeguarded by good knowledge concerning the whole production process: What is the effect of refining processes on the quality of feed? Process technology is the central topic during this training course where participants will gain insight into the production process of feed manufacturers. Furthermore, attention will be paid to the use of various resources, quality control, energy management and safety assessment.
This course is intended for advisors, technical staff and other interested personal working in the feed industry. It is also recommended to employees of the supplying industry, nutritionists, and policy makers.
• Basic processes in compound feed production: storage, conveying, dosing, milling, grinding, mixing, steam generation and conditioning, Hygienisation, pelleting, cooling, expanding. Extrusion, vacuum coating, sample taking, material properties.
• Lab testing: milling, mixing, pelleting, and pellet quality.
• Operating feed mills: compound feed quality, HACCP, and energy management.
