Raw materials : Cereal,corn,wheat,grass,stalk, straw,alfalfa, oil seed meal/cake, fish meal, etc.
Poultry feed production plant has very mature technology to make various poultry feed and aquatic feed such as cattle, chickens, sheep, rabbits, ducks, pigs, pigeons, fishes and shrimp etc. The whole production line can be control by the automatic PLC control system,which generally consisted of hammer mill, dryer, mixer, feed pellet mill, cooler, packing machine, etc.
Poultry farmer like the convenient,nutritious animals feeds produced at by animal feed production line. The pelleting process has been designed with the health of animals in mind, improving palatability and decreased feed wastage,as well as providing convenience to horse and cattle owners. The pellet process begins in the field, where sun cured alfalfa hay is harvested and baled at its peak nutritional stage. Most materials like alfalfa, grass, corn stalk,molasses, corn,grain nutritional supplements make up the the ingredients for all pellet ,formulations and are used in varying proportions depending on the type of pellets produced.After careful harvesting and preparation of the ingredients, the crushed raw materials enter the pellet machine and discharged as pellets which are then cooled before packaging.The packed pellet will be ready for market selling.
Steps of Poultry Feed Production Plant
Step 1: Grinding
If your materials content grass or straw which with long fibre,the first step is to crush the raw materials.This stage is mainly to grind materials into fine powder so as it becomes easy while mixing them.They undergo a grinding process with the help of feed crusher machine powered by large motors. The crushed materials then moves up a conveyor to reach its storage location in mixer machine.
Step 2: Mixing
Second step of is raw materials mixing. Mixing is one of the important operations in feed pellet processing.Lack of proper mixing may lead to reduced diet uniformity, affecting the feed pellet quality.The mixer churns the various components into a homogeneous mixture. Afterward, you can add the minerals compounds that you need for your animals,which can improve the feed pellet quality.
Step 3: Pelleting
The third step is raw materials pelleting..The materials after mixing need to be sent to the feed pellet machine for pelleting. The pellet process is the core step of whole production line, so it is necessary to monitor and timely deal with any abnormal conditions.
There are two common kind of feed pellet machine: flat die feed pellet mill and ring die feed pellet mill. If your demand is small capacity, you can choose the flat die feed pellet mill. If you want to produce feed pellets in commercial production, the ring die feed pellet mill is the ideal choice.
Step 4: Cooling
The produced pellets that have a moisture content of about 17%.
Those hot pellets are conveyed through a cooler which reduces their moisture content and hardens the pellets. These are critical factors that prevent spoilage and breakage after packaging. The screen shaker will removes powder or broken pellet before the pellets are stored in preparation for either bulk sales or packaging.
Step 5: Packaging
Packing is the last stage of small poultry feed production plant.In order to make the finished granules easy to store, transport and catch the customer’s eyes, they should be properly packaged. It will be done by a weighing and packing machine.The finished granules can be automatically packaged, weighed, conveyed and sealed, saving manpower and time and meeting the needs of large-scale production.
Zeno has the world’s advanced cattle and other ruminant animal feed processing technology, The equipment will be provided according to the ruminant digestive physiology unique characteristics and nutritional requirements of cattle and pig feed, poultry feed and feed is very different modulation in the feed formulation process. We can provide suitable processing technology and equipment according to customers’ tailored demand.
A successful small scale or large scale livestock and poultry feed production plant will solely depend on the availability and amount of quality feed available to the animals. This can be achieved through the design and performance of whole production line. Many farms realize high profits at the end of a business year and income is assured all year round by using feed pellet machine.It is definitely valuable to buy a small cattle feed pellet mill plant for a trial test, Do not hesitate !
