Manufacturing Technology of Chicken Feed Pellets in Small Poultry Feed Processing Plant

How to make chicken feed for broilers? This problem usually comes from small poultry feed mills or investors who want to start a feed processing business. The production process of broiler pellet feed is mainly a physical change. Without changing the nutrients contained in the raw materials, the poultry feed raw materials and additives are mixed together, and then processed into pellets by a feed pellet machine. Because the quality of chicken feed pellets directly affects the feeding status of animals, and ultimately affects the quality of the product and the interests of farmers, the production of high-quality chicken feed pellets is very important for farmers.(Related post: 2~4TPH Cattle & Chicken Feed Processing Plant Completed Successfully In Uzbekistan>>)

How to Make High-quality Chicken Feed Pellets?

  • Material selection process

Before processing the feed pellets, it is necessary to select chicken feed ingredients and appropriate chicken feed additives to provide the chickens with different nutrients. In addition, the ratio of each raw material must be strictly controlled, because this will directly affect the durability of the poultry feed pellets for chickens.

  • Crushing process

The raw materials are then sent to the crushing system of a small poultry feed factory for chicken pellets. According to the consumption of broilers, the raw materials of the chicken feed are first subjected to the chicken feed grinding system, which crushes the chicken pellet raw materials to become suitable chicken feed pellets. This helps chickens and poultry animals achieve greater nutrition, thereby making them healthier.

  • Mixing process

This process usually occurs after the chicken feed is crushed, and the raw materials and nutrients are mixed together through the mixer equipment. It can be widely used in the mixing of powder, pellets, and block materials in the feed, food, chemical and other industries.

  • Pelletizing process

After the feed is configured, the feed is sent to the final process, which is called the pellet or chicken ball manufacturing process. In the process of chicken feed pelletizing, the preparation of raw materials and the control of the physical state are the key to the quality of chicken feed pellets. Heating, water addition time, water addition and evaporation are all important factors for pelletizing. The die hole diameter and die thickness of the ring die chicken feed pellet machine also affect the pellet quality, relative hardness and output.

What Are the Influencing Factors of the Size of Broiler Feed Pellets?

The size of chicken feed pellets in poultry production is often overlooked. Feed manufacturers often cannot guarantee the uniform size of feed pellets during the production process. Feed pellets are not uniform in size, some are very fine, and some are very rough. Different grinding and crushing methods will lead to different distribution of feed pellets. Even when the overall nutrition of the feed is similar, different pellet sizes will affect the digestion and absorption of feed and poultry production performance. Therefore, feed manufacturers should always evaluate the size and distribution of feed pellets to minimize influencing factors.

The Effect of Feed Pellets Size on the Digestive System of Broilers

The development of the digestive system is affected by the size of the feed pellets. The feed of larger pellets for poultry can promote the development of the musculature and increase the length of the intestine. Larger pellets of feed stay in the musculature for a long time, and the feed is ground into small pellets before being released into the small intestine, thereby increasing the digestion and absorption of nutrients. Researchers believe that feeding large pellets of feed can promote the secretion of digestive enzymes in the small intestine and facilitate the digestion and absorption of nutrients.

When feeding fine-grained feed (powder), the feed does not need to be ground and quickly enters the glandular stomach through the musculature, resulting in the muscular stomach becoming smaller, the glandular stomach enlarged, and the length of the intestines reduced. Therefore, it is not recommended to use too fine feed.
