Mr Strathman has focused much of his energy modeling and optimising critical factory performance functions and advancing extruded food and feed processing technology during his 25-year career. He developed an industry-first digital factory in a collaborative effort, leading critical functions that delivered world-class manufacturing performances within five petfood production facilities.
Topic 2: Optimising the Feed Manufacturing Process
by Dr Charles Stark. The Jim & Carol Brown Professor in Feed Technology, Kansas State University, USA
Dr Charles Stark is the Jim and Carol Brown Professor in Feed Technology at Kansas State University. Dr Stark received his degrees in animal sciences (BS) and grain science (MS PhDat Kansas State University.
Before joining K-State he was an assistant professor in the Prestage Department of Poultry Science at North Carolina State University for seven years. Dr Stark also spent 12 years in the animal feed industry with responsibilities in feed manufacturing, quality assurance and plant operations. Over the course of his career he has published 45 journal articles, seven extension bulletins, four book chapters and 102 abstracts.
