Competitive Analysis

  • Firstly, the high hardness, surface finish, and internal maturation of pellet feed can improve the digestion and absorption efficiency of nutrition.
  • Secondly, the pellet formation process can make the trypsin resistance factor in cereals and legumes denatured to reduce the adverse effects on digestion, can kill various parasitic matters and other pathogenic microorganisms, and then reduce various worm and digestive system diseases. Then, the moisture content of the pellet feed is the moisture content of the material before pelleting, which is more conducive to storage. 
  • Finally, the pellet feed can avoid the cattle from picking up food and ensure the cattle can take in comprehensive nutrition.

Then what is the appeal of having your own cattle feed pellet mill?

  • Firstly, users can adjust the ratio of ingredients in the feed according to the specific situation, so that the feed can be more in line with the cattle;
  • secondly, manufacturing pellet feed by themselves can reduce the intermediate link and lower the feed cost.
