The agricultural economy is heavily dependent on feed technology. The Midwest is one of the largest feed production and grain processing regions in the world. Feed manufacturing is also a global business with a growing demand for qualified technical professionals.
Feed technology includes the areas of grain handling and storage, animal nutrition, feed formulation, feed manufacturing, biosecurity, and feed safety and quality. The Feed Technology minor (18 credits) covers the breadth of all these topics so that you can:
- Understand feed formulation, feed mill operations management and their application to feed quality and safety, worker safety and profitability;
- Identify chemical, biological and physical hazards in grain and feed;
- Know practical ways to monitor, manage and mitigate hazards in grain handling and feed manufacturing facilities; and
- Be familiar with the importance, scope and trends of the global animal feed industry.
