Welcome Dr.Stark

Dr. Charles Stark has accepted the new Jim and Carol Brown Associate Professor in Feed Technology position. He will be joining us in early August 2013. Between now and then he has agreed to work with us closely on the transition from the two old feed mills to the new O.H. Kruse Feed Technology Innovation Center.

Dr. Stark is a K-State alumnus with degrees in animal sciences (B.S.) and grain science (M.S., Ph.D.). Before joining NC State in 2006, he spent 12 years in the feed industry with responsibilities in feed manufacturing, quality assurance, and plant operations. He will have a joint faculty appointment in the departments of Grain Science & Industry (75%) and Animal Sciences & Industry (25%).

Kansas State University was well represented at the International Processing and Production Expo (IPPE) in Atlanta, GA. A total of 13 seniors and juniors took part in the College Student Career Program, which included on-site interviews and a Keynote Address by Donnie Smith, CEO of Tyson Foods. Chris Berg, junior in Feed Science and Management, describFeed 2ed IPPE as a valuable experience, "We learn a lot of valuable things in the classroom, but IPPE helped me understand things from the industry perspective. Plus, I met a lot of influential people and secured an internship with Cobb."

Also in attendance were six faculty members, four staff, and one graduate student. One special part of this year's IPPE trade show was that much of the equipment on display were the actual pieces donated for use in the  O.H. Kruse Feed Technology Innovation Center. K-State honored those manufacturers with plaques and signage recognizing the donations on display. Ericka Manring, junior in Feed Science and Management, shared, "It was cool to see the actual equipment that we will be using next fall on display. The companies are clearly proud of their involvement at K-State and it was neat to visit with them about their donation." Students participating in IPPE included: Cameron Adcox, Chris Berg, Grace Bokelman, Kyle Deutscher, Wesley Hutson, Matt LaRue, Ericka Manring, Sarah Mathe, Shauna Muehlbach, Cole Rickabaugh, Jesse Roush, Rosanna Spencer, and Caleb Wurth.
