The secret to reducing the cost of small poultry feed mills
With the attention and implementation of fine management in small poultry feed mills, the competition of cost control capabilities in the feed production and manufacturing process has gradually highlighted its importance.Poultry feed production and processing costs are the production costs of poultry feed mills for producing products or providing labor services, including direct material costs and manufacturing costs.Direct material costs include raw material expenditures, transportation costs, packaging material costs, etc. Manufacturing expenses refer to the various expenses incurred by the feed factory for organizing and managing production.
Feed Production and Processing Costs
|Direct material cost||Raw material expenditure||Transportation costs||Woven bag||Label||Sewing thread|
|Manufacturing costs||Workshop staff salary||Depreciation||Environmental protection expenditure||Power costs (electricity, coal, diesel)||Maintenance fees and others|
The potential tapping of the small poultry feed mill to reduce consumption is to carry out scientific and reasonable cost control for the poultry feed manufacturing process, in order to achieve the purpose of reducing the cost of the processing process and creating benefits for the enterprise.Below we will discuss the main parts of the production and processing costs of small poultry feed factories, hoping to give you some effective ways to reduce costs,and if you find any problems in the production and processing of small poultry feed, please feel free to contact us, we will give you timely guidance!
Reduce Power Consumption in Small Poultry Feed Mills
Electricity costs account for the largest proportion of power costs in small poultry feed plants, and crushing is one of the processes with the highest power consumption. The power consumption of the grinder accounts for about 40% of the total power consumption of the feed factory. The level of crushing efficiency directly affects the cost of power consumption. The electrical and mechanical consumption of the pellet machine accounts for about 30% of the total power consumption of the feed mill. There are three key operating parameters for the pellet machine operation: steam supply, feeding speed, ring die and pressure roller gap. If these three parameters are improperly adjusted, it is easy to block the machine, thereby reducing the production capacity of the granulator and increasing the power consumption per ton of the granulator.
Poultry Feed Pellet Equipment
Main Methods to Reduce Power Consumption in Small Poultry Feed Plants
- The production process is well prepared.
Ensure that the poultry production process is fully prepared, the connection arrangement is tight, the production preparation time and the idling of equipment are reduced, and the waste of manpower, electricity, fuel, and time costs are avoided.
- Organize production by using tiered electricity prices to reduce the cost of electricity for production.
The electricity price of small-scale poultry feed mills during the peak period of electricity consumption is generally about three times that of the low electricity consumption period. Since the electricity bill is in the low period at night, it is necessary to arrange the production of pellets in the evening shift as much as possible, and to reduce the phenomenon of blocking of the pellet machine in the evening shift.
Turn the crusher, granulator and other equipment to full load operation
In the production of poultry feed, the central control and pelletizers are worried about equipment jams and other problems, so the current of the grinder and pelletizer is controlled at 60%-70% of the rated current, or even lower, which makes most feed mills There are under-load and idling phenomena in equipment such as grinders and granulators, so power consumption will increase.
Control the Loss of Raw Materials in Small Poultry Feed Mill
Various Raw Materials for Feed Pellet
The reasons for the loss of raw materials in the poultry feed processing process include: dust loss (unloading, crushing and dust removal, cooling and dust removal, equipment and conveying pipelines are not tightly sealed, resulting in material leakage); moisture loss (unloading, storage, crushing, cooling); Measurement error loss (raw material weighing, batching scale, packaging scale, etc.); deterioration and other losses (raw material or finished material deterioration, raw material impurity content, material scale not cleaned up in time, bag broken, rodent damage, theft, etc.).
Small poultry feed mills need to strictly implement the weighing system and inventory system of raw materials and finished materials.
Small poultry feed mills need to pay great attention to the loss of dust form.
Small poultry feed mills should pay close attention to the water content in the finished feed. Too high water content will cause the feed to be easy to mold, and too low water content will increase the loss of the feed factory.

Use Energy-saving And Efficient Poultry Feed Equipment
With the development of the feed industry, in recent years, the progress of my country’s feed processing equipment upgrading has been accelerated, and the degree of specialization of feed processing equipment has continued to increase. Business are increasingly pursuing the improvement of production efficiency and the reduction of production costs.
ABC Machinery has launched a new type of energy-saving and efficient specialized poultry feed processing equipment, which can achieve the stability of feed processing quality and has a significant effect on increasing the added value of feed.
Hot Sale Poultry Feed Machine By ABC Machinery
Small-scale poultry feed mills should actively adopt processing equipment that can save energy and reduce consumption and have low operating costs, which can not only save labor costs, but also save time, space, safety and other production costs. If you want to buy suitable poultry feed processing equipment or want to establish your own small poultry feed factory, please contact us, we will provide you with a turnkey solution and the most cost-effective quotation.
The cost control of the feed processing process is a systematic project that requires all staff to participate in the control. It is impossible to complete it by a single person or team. A complete cost control system must be established. It is inevitable to invest or build a small poultry feed factory to consider the cost issue. If you have any questions about cost control, please contact us and we will give you professional guidance！
