The American Feed Industry Association (AFIA) will host its annual Feed Production Education Program on Feb. 1, as part of the International Production & Processing Expo (IPPE) in Atlanta. The free program is ideal for feed facility managers, operations personnel and mill personnel.

The half-day session will educate participants about expanding regulatory requirements and updates on changes from federal agencies, including the Department of Labor and the Food and Drug Administration. Other topics include: FSMA Readiness: What the Industry Looks Like a Year Post Rulings, Separation of Fines and Nutrients during Bulk Transport, and Advances in Pelleting Technology. The Feed Facility of the Year award winner will also be announced. For the complete agenda, click here.

“With ever-expanding regulatory requirements, this program will equip those working in feed manufacturing with up-to-date information, enabling them to comply with those requirements,” said Gary Huddleston, AFIA’s manager of feed manufacturing safety and environmental affairs. “Experts on pellet quality and product segregation—two major concerns for facility managers—will discuss findings of recent research on these topics,” he added. 

IPPE, the world's largest annual poultry, feed and meat industry trade show, will be held Jan. 31-Feb. 2. The expo is sponsored by AFIA, the North American Meat Institute and U.S. Poultry & Egg Association.
