A one-week Practical Short Course on Feeds & Pet Food Extrusion will be presented January 19-24, 2014, at Texas A&M University by staff, industry representatives and consultants.
The program will cover information on designing new feed mills and selecting conveying, drying, grinding, conditioning and feed mixing equipment. Current practices for production of petfoods and preparing full-fat soy meal; recycling fisheries' by-products, raw animal products and secondary resources; extrusion of floating, sinking and high-fat feeds; spraying and coating fats, digests and preservatives; use of encapsulated ingredients and preparation of premixes; and least-cost formulation are reviewed. Practical demonstration of petfood, vacuum coating and more are demonstrated on four major types of extruders (dry, interrupted flights, single and twin screw), using various shaping dies.
