Factors to Choose the Right Feed Pellet Machines
Different Feed Paellets for Cattle and Poultry
To enhance nutrient digestion and absorption in livestock, poultry and fish at different growth stages, crop straw, weeds, and by-products of various workshops are used to increase the content of protein and other nutrients, which are then mixed and compressed into pellets using a pellet feed machine. The resulting nutrition is sufficient for the animals to digest and absorb, leading to accelerated growth rates and reduced feed costs for farmers.
When selecting a pellet feed machine, the raw materials being processed should be considered. For processing concentrate feed, a flat or ring mold pellet feed machine is suitable, while flat mold pellet feed machines are best for processing forage feed or grass combined feed. This is because the flat mold pellet feed machine has a strong anti-overload capability and is made of high-quality alloy steel with good wear resistance, ensuring a longer service life than ordinary materials.
2. Requirements for Pellets
The particle shape of a good feed pellet should be smooth, have moderate hardness, and a damage rate of less than 4%, with the moisture content being less than 10%. The temperature of the pellets during the pressing process should be around 60-80°C to avoid losses in various trace elements added during the granulation process. It is also best to use a dry pellet feed machine, as the pellets produced do not require baking or sun exposure and can be bagged for storage and preservation at room temperature.
3. Different Breeding Sizes and Feed Consumption
Different Scale Feed Pellet Production Line Parts
When selecting a pellet feed machine, different types should be chosen based on the scale of cultivation and feed consumption. For granules made for pigs, fish, and chickens, the flat or ring mold pellet feeding machine can be selected as they have better pressing resistance and require less power. In contrast, flat mold pellet feeders are suitable for processing rabbit, cattle, and sheep feed due to the high proportion of processed grass powder, which can result in high resistance and load.
In summary, choosing the best pellet feed machine requires consideration of the raw materials being processed, the particle shape and moisture content of the feed, and the scale of cultivation and feed consumption. By selecting the appropriate pellet feed machine, farmers can enhance nutrient digestion and absorption in animals, leading to accelerated growth rates and reduced feed costs.
