Livestock feed pellets have become increasingly popular in New Zealand, driven by the growing demand for high-quality feed for various livestock, including cattle, sheep, and poultry. Making cattle feed pellets in New Zealand is a meticulous process that involves the use of specialized equipment and high-quality ingredients to ensure the nutritional needs of the animals are met, which includes the following key steps:

  • Formulating Cattle Feed Recipes:

The raw materials & formulation used in the production of livestock feed pellets in New Zealand are carefully selected to ensure they meet the nutritional requirements of the animals. Common ingredients include grains, protein sources (such as soybean meal), vitamins, and minerals.

Common Cattle Feed Pellets Formula
Ingredient   Proportion     Purpose
Corn   45% - 55%  Provide energy
Soybean meal  20% - 30% Provide protein
Silage 10% - 20% Provide roughage
Minerals and vitamins  1% - 2%  Maintain health 
Salt  0.5% - 1%  Maintain water balance and nerve function

This is a basic example of a cattle feed formula. Actual formulas may vary depending on the breed of cow, stage of growth, and production goals.

  • Grinding and Mixing Process:

After careful selection, the raw materials are ground into a fine powder using specialized cattle feed grinders. Subsequently, the ground ingredients are thoroughly mixed to achieve a homogeneous distribution of essential nutrients, enhancing the overall nutritional value of the feed.

  • Feed Pelletizing Process: Nutrient-Rich Pellet Creation

 The blended ingredients are then fed into flat-die feed pellet mills, where they are compressed under high pressure into small, cylindrical pellets. This process not only ensures uniform pellet size but also improves the feed's digestibility and palatability, promoting optimal health and milk production in cow.(Latest News: 2-3 TPH Chicken Feed Pellet Mill Built in New Zealand >>)

  • Cooling and Drying Process: Quality Preservation

Following the pelletizing process, the freshly formed pellets are hot and moist. To enhance their shelf life and preserve their quality, the pellets undergo cooling and drying using advanced pellet coolers and dryers. This critical step reduces moisture content, preventing spoilage, and maintaining the feed's nutritional integrity.

  • Screening and Packaging Process: Quality Assurance

Once cooled and dried, the pellets are meticulously screened to remove any fines or dust particles, ensuring a high-quality end beef or dairy product. Finally, the pellets are carefully packaged in bags or bulk containers, ready for distribution to livestock farms across New Zealand, providing a consistent and reliable source of nutritious feed for livestock.

New Zealand Animal Feed Pellet Processing Market for Cattle Sheep Poultry

New Zealand boasts abundant high-quality agricultural raw materials, such as premium grains, pastures, and top-notch protein sources, providing a solid foundation for producing high-quality livestock feed. Additionally, its agriculture is primarily dominated by the livestock sector, particularly renowned for dairy products and wool. Consequently, the livestock feed pellet market is primarily influenced by sectors like dairy cattle and sheep farming.

Emerging Cattle Feed Pellets Investment Potential New Zealand

The cattle feed pellet market in New Zealand is witnessing steady growth, propelled by the increasing demand for high-quality feed products. This growth is further fueled by farmers' growing recognition of the advantages of using pellets over traditional feed forms like mash or crumbles.

  •    A key trend in this market is the adoption of specialized feed pellets customized to meet the specific nutritional requirements of cattle. There is a rising demand for pellets enriched with higher protein content for poultry feed and those fortified with essential vitamins and minerals for cows.

  •    Another emerging trend is the utilization of alternative ingredients, including locally sourced grains and by-products from the food industry. This practice aims to reduce production costs and enhance the sustainability of feed production.

Starting Your Own Cattle Feed Pellet Making Business

Additionally, investing in the right equipment such as pellet mills, grinders, mixers, and coolers is essential.
