MANHATTAN, Kan. — Industry professionals that have an extensive milling background are invited to attend the Buhler–KSU Expert Milling course. There will be an English section offered March
2–6, 2020, and a Spanish section offered March 9–13, 2020.
“This course is great for anyone with more than five years of milling experience,” says Jason
Watt, Buhler Instructor of Milling. “The classroom lectures and hands-on activities will help individuals take their milling experience and expertise and fine-tune it.”
Topics to be discussed include, but are not limited to, flow sheet technology, optimum machine adjustment and mill handling, special cleaning systems, tempering of wheat, starch damage
and mill pneumatic systems. Participants will also spend time completing practical exercises in the Hal Ross Flour Mill.
Past course participant, Chris Craft, head miller at Grain Craft in Birmingham, Alabama, describes his experience at the Buhler–KSU Expert Milling course and the valuable knowledge that he
gained throughout the course.
“I wanted to advance my knowledge and try to advance in the field where I can look at more
detailed operations in the industry,” says Craft. “I was able to ask questions about my own mill and
setup and get some insight from the instructors, and they really gave me some ideas and direction to
make improvements when I go back.”
In addition to flour milling and grain processing, the IGP Institute offers courses in the areas
of feed manufacturing and grain quality management, and grain marketing and risk management. To
