Crushing Process

The raw materials are fed into the feed grinder machine and crushed into powdery raw materials, and then distributed to each batching bin through the conveyor. The main equipment is the feed grinder machine. The purpose of crushing is to improve the utilization rate of animal feed, increase the contact area of digestive enzymes to raw materials, and reduce chewing energy consumption during animal feeding. The crushed raw materials are easy to mature in the granulating and tempering stage, and can greatly reduce the power consumption, which can improve the working efficiency of the subsequent process.

crushing system

Mixing process

Evenly mix the raw materials weighed by the batching scale. Its core equipment is the feed mixer machine. The mixing shall be well controlled, and the uniformity shall gradually reach the appropriate uniformity with the increase of mixing time. However, if the mixing time is extended, the raw materials will be stratified. Avoid excessive mixing, and release the product before the proper mixing time is reached, so as to complete mixing during transportation.

Batching And Mixing System

Pelletizing process

The mixed powdered feed is processed into pellet feed. Feed granulation is easy to digest. Granulation can also improve the density of granular materials. The feed density is higher through the extrusion of the feed pellet machine, thus improving the storage capacity of the silo. It can also kill toxins in raw materials through high temperatures so that the feed pellets are safer for animals.

pelletizing process of poultry feed manufacturing plant

Cooling and screening process

In the process of granulation, due to high-temperature and humid steam and the extrusion of materials, a large amount of heat is generated, which makes the moisture content of the feed pellets reach 16%-18% when it just comes out of the feed pellet machine, and the temperature reaches 75-85℃. Under this condition, the feed pellets are easy to be deformed and break, and will also produce adhesion and mildew during storage. The moisture content must be reduced to about 13-15%, and the temperature must be reduced to about room temperature, which requires cooling.

After the powders are pelletized, some unqualified materials such as powder clots will be produced. Therefore, the feed pellets need to be screened into products with neat particles and uniform size.

Cooling And Screening System

The finished product packaging process

This is the process of weighing, bagging, and sealing the finished feed pellets with automatic packaging equipment. Generally, the finished products are delivered in two forms: bulk and bagged. Due to the limitations of transportation equipment, bagged products are mostly used. The automatic packaging system can weigh different specifications of feed according to customer needs.

The Finished Product Packaging Process

FAQ of poultry feed manufacturing plant


Is poultry feed manufacturing profitable?

Due to the large demand for high-quality poultry feed, investing in a poultry feed manufacturing plant has always been a profitable business, which has developed into the international market of many countries from a small scale. The United Kingdom, Brazil, Philippines, Greece, the United States, Thailand, and even South American countries have been large-scale producers of poultry feed for a long time.

poultry feed pellets

This is a business open to business owners, especially those who live near poultry farms or agricultural communities. All you need is full set equipment of poultry feed production line.

Feed pellet processing machinery will have high-temperature sterilization and disinfection during working, so as to ensure the safety of the poultry diet. Therefore, the advantages of investing in a poultry feed production line are obvious.

The purposes of conditioning

Conditioning is a key link in the production of granular materials, and the effect of conditioning directly determines the quality of feed pellets. After the powder is discharged from the feed mixer machine and before entering the pelletizing chamber of the feed pellet machine, the usual way to treat the powder is to inject steam into the conditioner to mix the feed and steam. 

the conditioner

The functions of conditioning are as follows:

  • Make starch gelatinize and improve the digestibility of feed.
  • The conditioned feed has a certain adhesiveness, which is conducive to particle forming.
  • It can soften the feed and play a lubricating role to improve the life of the ring die.
  • Kill bacteria that are dangerous to animals.
  • Improve the moisture content of pellets.

Conditioning can improve the granulation of materials, improve output, save energy consumption of granulation, and improve the service life of the feed pellet making machine.


How to set up a poultry feed factory?

Before starting your poultry feed manufacturing plant, you should make a plan to make it work. A well-thought-out business plan will help you make the right decisions. For example, what is the capacity of your poultry feed production line? How do you plan to purchase raw materials?

01 Find a good place for your poultry feed production line

If you are considering a poultry feed processing business, you need to consider the location of the factory. Choose a good site for poultry feed processing plants. Poultry feed processing plants need to be built in specific locations. It is most prudent to place the poultry feed processing plant where there are many poultry farms because your finished products will have a ready market. Besides, you need to check whether there is a water supply near the poultry farm. You will need to ensure that there is enough space so that you can expand your business.

02 Purchase of poultry feed plant equipment or machinery

If you don’t know where to get poultry feed production machinery, you can do some research online to find the best supplier of poultry feed equipment. This will help you determine which supplier will provide the most favorable price for your poultry feed production line. Once you find the supplier you want to cooperate with, you can ask about the best poultry feed manufacturing plant you need.
