Kansas State University's Department of Grain Science and Industry will host a Livestock Feed and Pet Food Safety Research Round Table at the International Grains Program on August 13. The event is geared toward professionals interested in learning about the latest updates in feed safety research and regulations in the livestock feed and petfood industries.
Petfood and livestock feed professionals will be able to review feed safety research, discuss with experts to identify priorities for future feed safety research, view facilities to conduct unique experiments and listen to a keynote speaker describe how multi-party cooperation has resulted in improvements in food safety.
Attendees will play an active role in a strategic planning discussion to help shape the future direction of research in livestock feed and petfood safety at Kansas State University. With the help of the experts in attendance, the department hopes to further its role as an essential player in feed manufacturing research.
