Importance of Pelletizing for Animal Raisers and Farmers

Pelleting is an everyday process in compound animal feed production. The changing of animal feeds into pellets has its advantages about the nutritional value and the final product handling. Every single pellet contains specified nutrients by the nutritionist as it is made by combining the ingredients. In this way, every animal will eat a balanced diet and selective eating behavior will be avoided.

A lot of time is wasted in the production of feed mash due to mill blockage. These problems are significantly reduced due to advanced machinery in pellet production. Transportation of the compounded feed is also improved through pelleting. The pellets are denser hence less in size compared to the feed mash. Therefore more pellets can be transported per unit transit. Another advantage is that pellets have less dust after packaging and therefore cross-contamination is highly reduced during transportation.

There are several factors to consider in the pelleting process from the formula to the controlling limits, rolling gap, and the pellet mill die provisions. The main factor is to govern the best accommodation between the quality of pellets and energy utilization, while producing the intended amount.

Condensation is improved by the addition of steam hence making better the pelleting process. This yields in producing more quality pellets per unit time and use of less energy. More pressure are added to the die by adjusting the roller gap giving a higher quality of the pellets. This will impact negatively on energy utilization because more energy will be used to push the feed via the die. This may be fixed by replacing the present die with a thicker one. The addition of steam has its limitations. Adding excess steam might cause the roller to slide and the results of the roller slide are dire. The workers are always careful because replacing the die is time-consuming and the damaged die cannot function again.

In conclusion, making pellets to feed animal is absolutely helpful both from cost and animal growth. Now, more and more small scale farmer owners have realized this problem, they are trying to seek more suitable animal feed making machine for their own use.
