How To Make Cattle Feed Best 2 Cattle Feed Ingredient Formula

about how to make cattle feed pellets

Dairy cows are bred to be able to produce large quantities of milk, which is the raw material for making dairy products. This means that feeds high in calcium, phosphorus, protein and energy both help to produce high-quality milk and keep the cows healthy. However, traditional feed has been unable to meet the feed requirements. As a healthier and more nutritious feed material, pellet feed has gradually replaced traditional pasture. It can be rationed through a scientific cattle feed formulation that best suits the needs of dairy cows during milk production.

Using pellet feed, dairy farmers can optimize dairy production to maintain the level of profitability they want!Cattle feed pellets are compound animal feeds made from a variety of raw materials, specially formulated to suit various types of cattle. For manufacturers, how to make cattle feed pellets depends on the cattle feed ingredients raw materials available. To make cattle feed pellets more nutritious, micronutrients such as vitamins, cobalt, manganese, selenium, and iodine can be added in cattle feed formulation. The process of how to make cattle feed pellets is described below.

How To Make Your Own Cattle Feed

what Equipment needed for making your own cattle feed

Machinery and equipment of how to make cattle feed pellets required in the cattle feed production line are as following.
1.Tank( or other containers ) for raw and auxiliary materials storage
2. Feed hammer mill(feed pellet grinder) for grinding the raw materials to feed powder.

3. Feed pellet blender( feed pellet mixing machine) used to mixing powdered materials to improve the uniformity of the ingredients.
4. Feed pellet mill(feed pelletizer) is the main equipment for making the cattle feed pellets. For cattle feed mill, we supply flat die feed pellet mill design better for home use and ring die feed pellet mill design for cattle feed factory. If you plan to buy a cattle feed pellet mill, you can tell us your capacity requirement, then our salesman will give you a good recommendation.

6. Feed pellet cooler is used to cool the hot and moisture feed pellets(if your production capacity per day is not so much, you will not need this pellet cooler, just dry the pellets in the sun is OK.)
7. Feed pellets screening and grading machine is used to remove the fines and grade the pellets, which is the preparation for packaging.

8. Feed pellet weighing and packaging machine is used to weigh and pack the pellets in the uniformity(If making cattle feed pellets for your own farm, you can choose to store the pellets in a dry container instead of buying a packing machine, while for an automatic feed pellet plant, the weight and packing machine is necessary.)
9. Other auxiliary machines( conveyor, lifter, etc. Usually used in an automatic cattle feed pellet line)

5 general process of how to make cattle feed pellets

Crushing Process:

The first step in how to make cattle feed pellets is to crush the raw material. This stage is designed to grind the material into fine particles so that it is easy to mix. This step happens in the coarse crusher. There is a hammer mill responsible for breaking down the raw material into finer particles. Once all the materials are ground into finer particles, you can move them to the next step to make cattle feed pellets.

Mixing Process:

The use of a cattle feed mixing can fully mix various cattle feed ingredients to ensure that each bite of the finished cattle feed pellets is nutritionally balanced. if you dont want to make your own cattle feed pellet, after crushing raw materials, you can use the mixing machine mixing your own cattle feed.

Pelletizing Process:

Feed pellet machine is the main equipment of complete animal feed production line. Compared with flat die feed pelletizers, ring die feed production equipment has a larger capacity.

Cooling Process:

The fourth step in how to make cattle feed pellets is drying the pellets. The granulation step produces granules with a moisture content of approximately 17%. This requires you to dry the pellets to the desired 11-12% moisture content before they leave the manufacturing plant.

Packing Process:

After cooling, the pellets will be bagged or stored according to your needs and requirements. The packaging process is handled efficiently by our semi-automatic packaging machines. The finished feed is weighed by a computer and then pneumatically unloaded into bags. The weighed bags will travel down the conveyor belt and the machine can be used to sew the top of the bag where the dry feed can be stored.
