The International Grains Program at Kansas State University will hold an extrusion processing short course from Aug. 9-12, at the IGP Conference Center.
The course is geared toward technical and managerial personnel in the petfood, feed and ingredient industries. It covers principles of extrusion processing, from raw material selection and equipment to post-processing operations and control systems.
A number of course lectures will be reinforced by hands-on participation at the Kansas State Extrusion Lab and a trip to Wenger Manufacturing in Sabetha, Kansas, USA. An addition to the 2011 course is a session on the science and practice of sensory evaluation and consumer acceptance studies for new products, which allows participants to create and taste the food they make. Participants will also learn the business aspects of extrusion processing and setting up an extrusion-based business, including capital decision making and strategic planning with real-world case studies.
The early bird registration deadline for the extrusion processing course in June 17. To register, visit Kansas State University's IGP website.
