Kim Koch, feed scientist for the Northern Crops Institute and adjunct faculty member of animal sciences, visited three companies in Morocco Oct. 6-15. While there, he provided onsite technical assistance in feed manufacturing to a layer operation north of Marrakech, a feed company near El Jadida and a dairy operation near Larache.
Koch assisted the layer operation with the installation, start-up and operation of a new roller-grinder for particle size reduction of whole corn used in its rations. The feed company and dairy both are installing flaking rollers to process tempered corn.
