IFF Practical Course "Essentials of feed compounding technologies"                           

The feed sector plays a key role within the animal sectors, for both animal husbandry and pets. Healthy, 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 know-ledge 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.

Target group:

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:
Milling and grinding
Steam generation and conditioning
Vacuum coating
Sample taking
Material properties

Lab testing:
Pelleting and pellet quality

Operating feed mills:
Compound feed quality and HACCP
Energy management
Explosion protection

Imparted knowledge will be deepened in practical experiments in our technical lab.

Experiences and knowledge will be imparted in updated lectures by the scientific staff of the institute and practice con-sultants. Enhanced practical courses on selected subjects shall illustrate the contents brought forward.
