The 2020 International Production & Processing Expo (IPPE) will offer a new research methods workshop, titled Feed Formulation Tools and Techniques. The workshop, scheduled for 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. on Thursday, Jan. 30, 2020, will provide students and researchers with hands-on experience for using basic tools and techniques needed to properly balance poultry and pig diets. The two-day workshop is a collaboration between the U.S. Poultry & Egg Association (USPOULTRY) and the University of New England.

Based on the book “Nutrition Experiments in Pigs and Poultry” by Michael R. Bedford, Mingan Choct and Helen Masey O’Neill, attendees will leave this workshop with workbooks needed to perform least-cost feed formulations and a complete understanding of how to use them. The tools provided will equip attendees to model both linear and stochastic models, taking ingredient variation into account. The only requirements for attendance are a laptop with Microsoft Excel that is able to run solver, and a basic understanding of ingredient composition and nutritional requirements. The cost of registration for the program is $75.

The 2020 IPPE will be held Jan. 28-30 and is a collaboration of three trade shows – the International Feed Expo, International Poultry Expo and International Meat Expo – representing the entire chain of protein production and processing. The event is sponsored by USPOULTRY, the American Feed Industry Association and the North American Meat Institute.
