500 kg/h poultry feed production Introduction


Chicken feed pellets are one of the most preferred and efficient chicken feeds. Making chicken feed pellet, you might need barley, wheat, corn, peas and such raw materials, the chicken feed formula and the machinery are required. Good pellets mean better chicken and hence better performance.

Our designed pelleting process are: grinding→mixing→conveying→pelleting→packing, here is the detail information following:

  • Raw materials:

Raw materials: When it comes to chickens, it is important about the raw materials contains high protein and calcium to keep the chicken in tip-top shape, and allow them to produce nutrient filled fresh eggs. The idea of making your own chicken feed is more and more popular among farms. And by making feed yourself and save a lot of cost, it matters what kind of materials you choose and in what proportions should it be mixed? There are some main materials that you can use like corn, alfalfa, field peas, wheat, barley and etc, there materials are high protein materials; there are things you can add in the materials like lime, oyster shell, salt, crab meal, fish meal and such materials to provide calcium source vitamins and other elements. Also to save your cost, you can adjust the raw materials type yourself, normally use the available materials during the harvest season.

  • Production process:

Grinding: once you have your raw materials for making chicken feed, you might need grinding them all to powders, especially like grass, if it is long, it must be cut first, this process will make sure the materials are more easier to be mixed formed pellet. The ground materials helps the digestion of the chicken and greatly helps the healthy growth of the chicken, so that grinding process is a very important process in the feed production line. The grinding fineness requirements are: small chicken-less than 1 mm, middle chicken-2 mm, large chicken-2~2.5 mm.

Mixing: after grinding the raw materials, and confirmed the proportions on each materials, you need to mix the premix accordingly, the feed mixing machine is the “heart” of the entire feed production line, the capacity of the mixer determines the feed production line’s capacity. Using the mixing machine can mix the premix materials evenly and make the final product better quality.

Pelleting: the flat die pellet machine make use of the interaction of pressing force and friction force between the press roller and the press die to make the material into granules shape. During the production process, the starch in the feed can be ripened and make the feed more aromatic. The particle formation process can degenerate the resistance factors in grains and beans, reduce the adverse effects on digestion.Also the production process can kill various parasite eggs and other pathogenic microorganisms and reduce various parasitic diseases and digestive system diseases. By using the feed pellet machine, it is more easier to feed the poultry, comparing to powder feed, the pellet feeds’ utilization rate is higher and you can reduce a lot of waste of the feed.

Cooling & packing: if you need to sell the feed pellet to farmers or retail stores, you need to pack the feed pellets in bags, we will provide the correspondingly packing machine for you and to make the production line more automatic, we will deploy the cooling machine for you to make it more quick to cool the pellet and convenient to be packed.
