what is poultry feed production line？
poultry feed production plant is fully complete automatic feed pellet production plant for producing poultry feed pellet like chicken feed pellet, hen feed pellet, broiler feed pellet, duck feed pellet, bird feed pellet etc.the chicken feed manufacturing plant has small scale production capacity and large scale production capacity.
Due to the rapid development of the poultry farm industry in recent years, traditional feed can no longer meet the demand for feed. Farmers started looking for another feed product – pellet feed, which was healthier, more nutritious, easier to digest, easier to store, and easier to transport. The raw materials for making pellet feed can be grass meal, straw meal, vitamins, hay meal, corn meal, etc.
With years of experience in feed processing machinery, we have more than 10 engineers to develop business plans for poultry feed processing line for domestic and foreign customers.
We optimize the performance of our poultry feed processing plant equipment to meet the unique needs of feed processors, and we can produce the tightest distribution of uniform particle size and the least amount of dust.
All equipment is constructed of carbon steel or stainless steel and can be custom configured according to the customer’s material and production goals.

making poultry feed and livestock feed like for chicken feed pellet, duck feed pellet, bird feed pellet etc and other poultry and livestock.
processing life garbage and other green plants into pellets for livestock and poultry feed .
turning straw, grass, hay meal into pellets for poultry feed and heating fuel
processing grain into pellets like corn/maize, soybean, rice, wheat, and no need crushing them before pelleting, put them in the pelleting room of poultry feed making machine, they will become pellets automatically.
poultry feed manufacturing process
The poultry chicken feed production line is a complete set of equipment specially used for making poultry feed pellets. The production capacity of this poultry feed processing plant varies from 1 ton per hour to 10 tons per hour. The poultry feed processing line generally includes the following processes: raw material receiving and cleaning process, crushing process, mixing process, pelletizing process, pellet cooling process, (particle crushing process), screening process and packaging process.
In general, a poultry feed production line process consists of the following steps:
First, the raw materials or feed ingredients required by animals are pulverized into powder by a pulverizer, such as soybean meal, corn, wheat, vegetables and other materials
Then, in the mixing machine, the crushed raw material powders are mixed completely for later pellet production process. In this process, the user can add additive agents like vitamin, powder, bone and other necessary trace element
Next, the mixed raw materials enter the poultry feed pelletizer through the conveyor. Under high temperature and pressure inside the machine, the loose material is pressed into solid particles of high density, uniform size and shape.
The finished pellet feed is then cooled and screened in a pellet cooler and screener for later packaging and storage.
Finally, by cooling and sifting, the pellets can be stored in bags. The bagged granules are ready to be sold on the market.
poultry feed production process for small capacity
Crushing Process: Hammer Mill Crusher
hammer mill feed crusher is suitable to grind raw materials into powder with optimal size for best pelletizing effect.
Mixing Process: Feed Mixer
The crushed materials are lifted to the high-level silo, and then the materials from different silos are put into the mixer for mixing.
Pelletizing Process: Flat Die Pellet Mill
The mixed material needs to be lifted again and sent to the feed granulator for granulation. The productionj process is the core step of the granulator, so any abnormal situation must be monitored and dealt with in a timely manner.
Cooling Process: Cooling Machine
During the manufacturing process, a lot of heat is generated due to the introduction of high temperature and high humidity steam. The material has just been discharged from the granulator, the water content is 16%-18%, and the temperature is as high as 75℃-85℃. It is easy to deform and break, and it will also cause adhesion and mildew during storage. Must be reduced to below 14% and temperature reduced to 8°C below temperature.
Packing Process: Packaging machine
The final step in the pellet feed production process is packaging. After screening, qualified products are packaged for easy packing and transportation.
poultry feed production process for large capacity
Before making chicken feed pellets, the raw materials should be pulverized. chicken feed crusher can crush raw ingredients to the required particle size. Chicken feed should not be too fine, because chickens like to eat pelleted feed or crushed grain feed, which can be used in combination with thickness. Rice and broken rice can be directly added to the mixer in pellet form. The crushing fineness of wheat and barley should be below 2.5 mm. Corn, Brown rice and bean cakes should be processed into powder.
Mixing is considered as one of the essential operations in poultry feed processing line, and the poultry feed mixer is the main machine in the chicken feed production line. It uses a blender to mix the ground ingredients. Our mixers are divided into three types: single shaft mixers, twin shaft paddle mixers and ribbon mixers. Both can be equipped with an atomizing spray system to add the required liquid to improve the quality of chicken feed pellets.
The mixed powder feed is processed into pellet feed. Feed pellets are easy to digest. During the manufacturing process, the granulated raw material must be stirred with an appropriate amount of water at a high temperature for a period of time. The granulated raw material is ripened, softened and bonded, and the mechanical energy generated during granulation can increase the raw material. Damage levels are easier to digest. If the feed is easier to digest, the poultry can absorb its nutrients more quickly and the “meat ratio” will be lower. It tastes good and tastes good. The granules have a nice fragrance. The manufacturing process can also spray other materials on the surface of the granules.
In the production process of pellet feed, in order to save electricity, improve productivity and improve quality, the material is often made into pellets of a certain size, and then crushed into qualified products according to the size of the feed pellets.
After the pellet feed is processed by the crushing process, some unqualified materials, such as powder, will be produced. Therefore, the crushed pellet feed needs to be sieved into a product with neat particles and uniform size.
During the pelleting process, when the pellet feed comes out of the feed pellet machine, the water content reaches 16%-18%, and the temperature is as high as 75°C-85°C. It can also cause sticking and mildew during storage. Moisture must be reduced to below 14%, temperature must be below 8°C above air temperature, and cooling is required.
The process of weighing, bagging and slitting finished products through automatic packaging equipment. Generally finished products are shipped in bulk and bags. Due to the limitations of transportation equipment and large-scale feeding, bagging is often used.
