  • Pretreatment - Crushing & Mixing: Small Feed Crushing and  Small Feed Mixer are generally used.
  • Processing - Pelletizing: The pre-treated materials are loaded into the animal feed pellet machine for pelletizing process. For the pelletizing process, choosing a reliable Feed Pellet Mill Manufacturers is of great importance.
  • Postprocessing - Cooling & Packaging: The pellet feed produced by pellet mill machine has a higher temperature, which requires cooling. Generally, the counter-current cooler should be installed under the granulator to save the transportation equipment of feed. The cooled feed pellet can be directly bagged for storage or fed to poultry and livestock. (Related Equipment: Pellet Cooler >>)

  • Pretreatment - Modulation & Steaming & Mixing

The pretreatment process is mainly the process of modulating the prepared powder material. In this process, the material is firstly modulated by the modulator, and then the original material is softened by the steam supply system (mainly including the steam boiler, pipes and their accessories). In order to increase the palatability of the feed, in this process can also be added to the appropriate oil additives (general molasses additives). The added materials are then mixed evenly to prepare for the next step of pelletizing. (Related Equipment: Small Feed Mixer >>)

  • Feed Pellets Making Process: Ring die type feed pellet machines are generally used in large scale feed plant.
  • Pellets Cooling & Bagging Process

Advantages of Pelleted Feed for Animals

Making Pelleted Feed for Cattle & Livestock Animals
  •   Feed Pellets Improve Nutrient Utilization

In the granulation process, water, temperature and pressure is combined to improve the nutrient utilization. The pelletizing process destroys the plant's cell wall, thereby increasing the digestibility of the feed. In the process of granulation, carbohydrate will undergo partial cracking, which will cause starch gelatinization so as to improve the utilization rate of feed energy. Pelletizing can destroy some toxic and harmful factors in the feed and improve the effectiveness of nutrients in the feed.

  •   Avoids Animal Being Picky about Food

Feeding the animals (livestock, poultry) with feed pellets can avoid the animal selecting the gains or food. The feed pellets contains a variety of nutrients, which ensures daily supply of feed at full price.

  •   Reduces Nutrient Consumption of Animal Feeding Activities

The feeding speed of livestock and poultry to pelleted feed is often higher than that of powder feed, and the feeding time is only one third of that of powder feed.

  •   Convenient Feeding and Reduction of Waste

The feeding of pelleted feed is convenient and saves labors, can can reduce the feed waste in the animal feeding. Due to the unreasonable feeding trough, there often has waste, the pelleted feed can reduce 8~10% of feed waste.

  •   Better for Transportation and Economic

Animal feed pellet is generally in small size. The volume of common pellet feed will reduce about 1/2-2/3 of the power feed of the same weight and the bulk density increased by 40%-100%. In addition, pelleted feed is easy to store, pack and transport. Pelleted feed will save the bin capacity and will not produce automatic classification. And it also plays an important role in maintaining the uniformity of trace components in the feed. It is also not easy to damp, than the same weight of powder volume reduced by 1/2-2/3, bulk density increased by 40%-100%, easy to store, pack and transport.At the same time can save bin capacity, will not produce automatic classification, especially to maintain the uniformity of trace components in the feed has an important role. It is also not easy to damp, Not easy to damp, so it will helpful for the mechanized feeding.

  •   Improving Environmental Hygiene

Pelleted feed is not easy to fly and reduces natural loss, which can improve environmental hygiene.
