A Practical Short Course on Feeds and PetFood Extrusion will be presented January 29 through February 3, 2012, at Texas A&M University by staff, petfood industry representatives and consultants.
The program will cover designing new feed mills and selecting conveying, drying, grinding, conditioning and feed mixing equipment. Current practices for petfood production are reviewed, including the topics of preparing full-fat soy meal; recycling fisheries by-products, raw animal products and secondary resources; extrusion of floating, sinking, and high-fat feeds; spraying and coating fats, digests and preservatives; use of encapsulated ingredients and preparation of premixes; and least cost formulation. Practical demonstration of petfood, vacuum coating and others are demonstrated on four major types of extruders (dry, interrupted flights, single and twin screw), using various shaping dies. Reservations are accepted on a first-come basis.
