Nineteen feed manufacturers from Southeast Asia attended Northern Crop Institute’s Feed Manufacturing Technology course held Nov. 5-9.
The course was co-sponsored by Minnesota Soybean Research and Promotion Council, North Dakota Soybean Council and South Dakota Soybean Research and Promotion Council, in conjunction with American Soybean Association International Marketing.
The course provided the latest technical information, with the goal of better understanding of today’s feed manufacturing industry and the role of soy. Technology training focused on the size reduction, mixing and pelleting operations. The design, working principles and operation of hammer mills, roller-grinders, mixers and pellet presses also were explained.
John Crabtree, Northern Crops Institute assistant director, coordinated the course.
