How To Start Feed Mill Business?

If you want to build an animal feed mill, you must consider the following at the initial stage:

How To Start Feed Mill Business

  • Investigate the marketing channels and determine the type of feed to be produced. Including feed quality and output requirements, and determining the formula for feed processing.
  • Correct site selection, environmental protection evaluation, planning approval, application for production license and business license.
  • Determine the feed processing technology and select related equipment. Determine the feed mill factory's processing scale, production technology and equipment, equipment performance and quality, equipment cleaning and maintenance, production cost and use cost, common parts, construction space of the project, environmental protection and fire protection and other local feed mill regulations.
  • Selection of plant structure. Full concrete structure, semi-steel structure, all steel structure, etc.
  • Feed mill layout design. Factors to consider: logistics distance, safety regulations, avoiding mutual interference, factory center of gravity, visual effects. The feed mill layout varies according to the nature, scale and technological process of the feed mill. The factory area generally includes the main workshop, silo, boiler room, office building, accommodation building, weighing room, feed mill restaurant, feed mill cafe, roads, guard room, etc. Usually buildings should account for 30-35% of the total area of the factory area; The roads in the plant area account for 13% of the total area; the green area is not less than 10-15% of the total area of the feed mill plant.

Complete Feed Mill Process

If you want to build a feed mill factory, the feed manufacturing process and feed mill equipment will always be the core content. Please note that each of our feed mills is customized, because the customer's plant, local height limit, customer's raw materials, feed formula, etc. are different, so if you need to build a feed mill factory, please contact us directly for details.

Complete Feed Mill Process

Complete feed milling process flow

  • Receiving, cleaning and conveying of raw materials
  • Crushing of raw materials
  • Ingredients and mixing of raw materials
  • Feed pelleting
  • Pellet cooling
  • Pellet screening
  • Finished product packaging and storage

If you are processing powder feed or premix, then pelleting and subsequent production processes are not required, and you can enter the packaging section after mixing.

Complete feed milling process flow

  1. Receipt of raw materials in feed mill
    ①Receipt of bulk raw materials: when transported by bulk cars or trains, the raw materials will be unloaded to the unloading pit after being weighed by a floor scale.
    ②Receipt of packaging materials: divided into two types: manual handling and mechanical reception.
    ③Receipt of liquid raw materials: bottled and poked can be directly transported and stored manually.
  2. Cleaning of raw materials in feed mill
    Remove impurities (mud, stones, hemp rope, iron nails, iron nuggets, etc.) in the raw materials to ensure the quality of feed products and ensure that the subsequent equipment of the process is free from failure or damage.
  3. Crushing of feed ingredients in feed mill
    The purpose of crushing is to increase the specific surface area of the feed, increase the utilization rate of the animal's feed, reduce the energy consumption of the animal's chewing during the feeding process, and help increase the feed reward. The crushed raw materials are easy to mature in the pelleting and conditioning stage, which improves the quality of subsequent processes and improves work efficiency. The technological process of feed crushing is determined according to the required particle size, feed variety and other conditions.

    Crushing of feed ingredients in feed mill
  4. Feed ingredients in feed mill
    The process of feeding and weighing materials is based on the requirements of the preset feed formula and adopts a specific ingredient metering system to measure different feed ingredients. The formulated materials are sent to the mixing equipment for mixing and mixing to produce a compound feed whose nutritional content and mixing uniformity meet the product standards. The feed ingredient metering system refers to a circulatory system centered on the ingredient scale, including ingredient bins, feeders, unloading mechanisms, etc., to realize the supply, weighing and discharge of materials.
  5. Mixing of feed in feed mill
    In feed mill production, the working condition of the main mixer not only determines the quality of the product, but also plays a decisive role in the production capacity of the production line. Therefore, it is known as the "heart" of the feed factory. The mixing process refers to the process method and process of weighing the ingredients in the feed formula and then entering the mixer for uniform mixing processing.
    The requirements for the mixing section are short mixing period, high mixing quality, fast discharging, low residual rate, good airtightness, and no spilled dust. The production capacity of the mixer determines the production scale of the feed factory, so the capacity of the mixer is selected according to the feed mill production scale.
  6. Pelleting of feed in feed mill
    The purpose of pelleting is to make finely divided, dust-prone, poorly palatable and difficult-to-ship feed into pellets using the heat, moisture and pressure during the pelleting process. Compared with powdered feed, pelleted feed can improve feed digestibility and reduce animal picky eating, avoid automatic grading of feed ingredients, reduce environmental pollution, kill salmonella in animal feed, and make storage and transportation more economical. After granulation, the bulk density of the powder will generally increase by 40% to 100%.

    Pelleting of feed in feed mill
  7. Feed cooling in feed mill
    In the feed mill pelleting process, the high temperature and high humidity steam is introduced and the material is squeezed to generate a lot of heat, so that when the pellet feed comes out of the feed pelletizer machine, the water content reaches 16%-18%, and the temperature is as high as 75℃-85℃, under this condition, pellet feed is easy to deform and break, and it will also cause adhesion and mildew during storage. The moisture must be reduced to below 14%, and the temperature should be lower than 8 ℃ higher than air temperature. This requires feed cooling process.
  8. Screening of feed in feed mill
    After the pellet feed is processed by the crumbling process, a part of powder clots and other unqualified materials will be produced. Therefore, the crumbled pellet feed needs to be sieved into products with neat pellets and uniform sizes. (In the pellet feed production process, in order to save power, increase output, and improve quality, materials are often first made into pellets of a certain size, and then crushed into qualified products according to the pellet size of livestock and poultry feeding. This crumbling section needs to be configured according to customer needs.
  9. Packing of finished product in feed mill
    Put into the packing scale from the finished product warehouse and pack after weighing. During this process, the packing should be calibrated until it meets the standard of packing weight. If you want to build a feed factory to provide feed for your farm, not for commercial use, then there is no need to set up a packing section.

How to run a feed mill efficiently?

The production management of the feed mill factory is the management of the four core contents of feed factory safety, product quality, production efficiency, and manufacturing cost. Among them, the improvement of production efficiency is the most important item for production management personnel. A significant increase in water retention rate has been found in feed mills. Quality improvement and efficiency improvement can save costs, reduce carbon emissions and increase production efficiency. This article focuses on some enlightenments for feed processing and hygiene.

40 tons per hour livestock and poultry feed pellet production line

Animal feed producers, whether poultry, dairy, aqua or even swine operate in highly competitive environments. Efficiency savings across the supply chain can yield great results from a relatively low investment. One area often ripe for improvement is in feed mills, where adjusting operations, settings or processes can yield huge savings. By finding ways to get more from existing equipment, improving staff knowledge and minimising wastage, feed mills can often gain efficiencies and save cost.

Here, RICHI will give you 5 key areas feed manufacturers should look at to ensure their feed mills are working profitably, productively and sustainably.

How to run a feed mill efficiently

(1)Optimizing the feed mill production processes

There are often gains to be made by improving batching processes–whether that's weighing out raw materials, or timings of wet and dry mix applications. First look at individual processes within a mill, measure performance and then try to build some efficiencies into that feed mill process. It’s important to periodically look at your batching system, how you weigh out raw materials, and finding gain time between each batch, and timings of wet mix and dry mix applications - there are often ways you can save either time or cost by working more efficiently.

small poultry feed mill

Pelleting, too, can benefit from outside scrutiny. Look at the process and current running parameters, monitoring the steam system and conditioning processes. Each feed formulation requires different tweaking–manipulating settings to get feed to gelatinise effectively before the pelleting process is key to improve efficiencies.

There are often gains to be made by improving feed mill batching processes–whether that's weighing out raw materials, or timings of wet and dry mix applications.

(2)Reducing feed mill energy consumption

Costs are rising, and there is increasing scrutiny on businesses' carbon footprint makes the need to use energy as efficiently as possible–reducing waste is an important part of this drive for efficiency.

Look at the moisture within conditioned feed, and based on the levels of conditioning and gelatinisation; we can then introduce methods to improve energy consumption. In terms of waste, we look at how much product has been returned to pre-processing bins and try to reduce the amounts returned for reprocessing. It's based on mechanical know-how and steam know-how.

(3)Securing feed hygiene for feed mill

The livestock industry has had to deal with several recent epidemics and biosecurity continues to be a focus of processors and consumers alike, and with good reason. Anti-microbial resistance, African Swine Fever and Avian Influenza are yet to be overcome–despite best efforts.

In a feed mill setting, you would begin by looking at the CFU levels of stored raw materials and then measuring the finished product, and again three-to-seven days later. Look at measures of how to improve the sanitisation of the entire mill process and transport to ensure feed is free of any nasties. Another part of this work is validating products which are used by feed mills to improve hygiene, such as those designed to reduce CFU levels and to ensure salmonella free feed, proving their efficacy through these trials.

(4)Feed mill moisture management

A usual range for moisture loss in the feed process is between 1-1.5%, and animal feed mills should be challenging and reviewing their losses from season to season. This is a topic always under scrutiny. Find ways to reduce the amount of moisture loss within the feed processes by adjusting setting–each mill is unique, and we would have to survey it first to find ways of improving moisture management.

In addition to reducing moisture loss through adjusting machinery, it is also possible to add moisture management products, or use an in-line sensor to monitor levels. Ensuring those products are working efficiently is crucial for ongoing testing and refining.

The cooling process is another aspect where you can lose moisture–so it's essential to review this process, as well.

(5)Feed mill personnel training

An essential part of an efficient mill is having confident, well-trained staff. Quite often, A lot of people come into the industry and might not understand how systems work. We often find knowledge has been handed down and thinned in the process, and there’s a lot of historical settings that might not match current best practice, machinery or formulations. Part of what we do is offer hands-on training on the mill floor to give people the confidence to make decisions with equipment.

Although training in a classroom environment does add value, I believe that mill personnel gain unsurpassed benefits from practising rather than reading. No matter what you do to your process, or what feed mill equipment you use, it is important to challenge your processes to extract optimum feed mill plant performance thus achieving tangible savings for the business and its supply chain.

What small poultry feed mill machinery are needed in 1t/h small feed mill?

How to set up a 2-3t/h feed mill for dog food?

(Take the project design we have done as an example)The characteristics of dog feed are fine crushing (60-80 mesh required), high maturation and conditioning requirements, high oil content (using a combination of mixer + extruder + powder spraying and spraying), and the finished particle diameter range Wide (pellet diameter is about 0.6-20mm). The pet feed mill is designed to produce 2-3T/H per hour.

It adopts the ingredients first and then the crushing process, that is, the first batching, the first pre-mixing and crushing, the second fine crushing, the second mixing, puffing, drying, powder spraying, and cooling, packaging of finished products. The total power of the equipment is approximately: 505KW; the construction area of the production area is approximately 19×12×19m (height); it is equipped with a 1.5T boiler. The whole line has compact design, reasonable structure, meets environmental protection requirements, and can be oriented design according to customer requirements.

How to set up a 2-3t/h feed mill for dog food

2-3T/H dog feed mill factory process design:

Due to the high content of fat and oil in the raw materials of dog food, it would be more difficult for the pulverizer to crush a single raw material with high fat if the conventional powder-first-preparation process is adopted, so the powder-preparation process is generally adopted.

  1. Raw material receiving and cleaning section: In this section, the pellet feeding cleaning and powder feeding cleaning are separated independently, and the dust is removed separately, and the dust removal effect is good.
  2. One batching section: This section adopts 10 batching bins and one batching scale for batching. It is controlled by the batching program independently developed by our company to realize accurate fast and slow feeding, fast batching speed and high precision.
  3. One-time pre-mixing and crushing section: This section uses a ribbon mixer for pre-mixing to improve the uniformity of the materials before crushing; the raw materials of a crusher are removed by a magnetic separator before entering the warehouse to ensure the safe operation of the feed crusher.
  4. Micro-powder section: Because the extruder has relatively high requirements for the fineness of raw materials, generally 60-80 mesh, this section adopts a micro-pulverizer, adopts pneumatic discharge, is equipped with brake dragon, pulse dust collector, and The fineness of crushing can be adjusted.
  5. Secondary mixing section: This section adopts two secondary batching bins, a mixer, and a small material adding port.
  6. Expansion section: This section adopts a twin-screw extruder. Above the extruder is a round silo to be expanded and equipped with a pan feeder to prevent material arching and smooth discharge.
  7. Spraying and packing section: This section adopts customized hybrid powder spraying and spraying equipment, and two weight-reducing silos are set up before entering the equipment to meet the proportion control of batching. Powder spraying and grout spraying solves the requirement that the amount of oil added in the early material should not be too much to meet the requirements of the amount of oil added, and the sprayed feed has good appearance, strong palatability and strong nutrition. Finally, after cooling by a pendulum cooler, it is screened and packed.
  8. Auxiliary section: Dust removal system, dust removal at the packing mouth, improve the working environment of workers; grease addition system, water addition system, improve the palatability of feed.

According to the needs of different customers, the scheme can be optimized for configuration:

  • This plan adopts the process of mixing first and then powder, and the raw material warehouse is also used as ingredients, which simplifies the process and saves costs. The number of silos and buffer hoppers can be adjusted according to customer needs. For example, setting two buffer hoppers for feeding can reduce the waiting time of batching and improve efficiency;
  • The secondary micro pulverization process can select more efficient and finer ultra-fine pulverization equipment according to the customer's specific production materials, but the cost will increase;
  • The configuration of the extruder is a single-layer conditioner + a dual-axis differential conditioner. The single-axis conditioner is used to add more meat slurry and grease to it. If the fat content is not high , Customers can not use single-layer conditioner according to the situation, thereby reducing costs;
  • Finished product packaging equipment can be customized according to the customer's packaging specifications and requirements. Generally, the finished product packaging of pet materials can be divided into small packaging and large packaging, and different packaging equipment will be used.

What's the meaning of organic feed mill?

An organic feed mill is a factory that produces organic feed. So what is organic feed? Organic feed is a feed product that is produced by an organic production system using organic feed materials in accordance with relevant organic feed standards.

animal poultry feed milling machine

Chemically synthesized drugs, growth promoters and other chemically synthesized additives are not allowed in the product, and products obtained by genetic engineering technology, such as genetically modified soybean meal, cottonseed meal, etc., are not allowed to be used in the product. The product quality is tested to meet the requirements of the organic feed standard. It is also certified to allow the use of organic product marks on product packaging.

The requirements for this type of product are higher than that of green feed. Only the feed that meets the above conditions or meets the above requirements can be called organic feed, otherwise it is not organic feed.

How to build on farm feed mill?

With the continuous development of the breeding industry, many professional breeding households and professional villages have appeared in rural areas, which has increased the demand for feed. Many feed mills are farm-based, some just provide feed for their own farms, and some will produce part of it for sale. So here we will talk about how to set up an on farm feed mill.

How to build on farm feed mill

(1) Conduct feasibility analysis

Establishing small farm use feed mill plants in rural areas first requires thorough and detailed investigations, and on this basis, conduct economic analysis and technical demonstrations. Only when the breeding industry needs it, the economic benefits are good, the advanced feed processing and compounding technology is mastered, and the local spirit of "comprehensive planning, overall arrangement, local conditions, and reasonable layout" can be invested and built.

(2) Scientifically determine the scale of plant construction

The scale of production is the basis for the design of the feed processing plant. The scale of production should be determined according to the demand for feed in the supply area. The daily feed demand can generally be calculated based on 0.15 kg per day for laying hens and 1.75 kg per day for pigs. Then, the annual feed demand is calculated based on the total number of livestock and poultry raised in the supply area to determine the construction The production scale of the factory. For example, a single-shift equipment with an annual output of 1,000 tons can raise 20,000 laying hens or 1,500 pigs.

factory price animal feed mill equipment

According to the local power supply situation, it should first be determined whether it is one-shift production or two-shift production. For example, for a compound feed factory with an annual output of 4,000 tons, if it is produced in one shift, only equipment with a productivity of 2 tons/hour is required, and if it is produced in two shifts, only equipment with a productivity of 1 ton/hour is selected. In order to give full play to the production capacity of the equipment. To improve economic efficiency, in the case of guaranteed power, it is generally appropriate to use two-shift production.

In addition, the annual time base of the equipment is currently prevailing: if the equipment productivity is 1 ton/hour, the annual production capacity is 2,000 tons. This is a one-shift production, and the equipment's annual time base is based on 2,000 hours. Therefore, according to the production capacity of the equipment and further considering the development plan of the local aquaculture industry or the current breeding scale, the tonnage of the equipment can be selected according to local conditions, thereby scientifically determining the scale of the on farm feed mill.

(3)Choose the site correctly

The feed mill factory site should follow the principle of “processing nearby” and prioritize construction in towns with sufficient feed resources, developed animal husbandry, convenient transportation, guaranteed electricity, and markets, or villages with a certain scale of professional breeding households. If the feed factory is built near the grain depot, or integrated with the grain depot, the housing facilities and corresponding costs for raw grain storage can be omitted.

Feed mill plants for farm should not be built in toxic, harmful, pathogenic gas or dust-contaminated places, and should not be built near or out of the limelight in livestock and poultry farms, pesticide plants, and sewage treatment plants.

animal feed mill plant manufacturer

(4)Carefully select equipment

Before the establishment of the plant, the corresponding complete set of feed processing equipment should be selected according to the determined production scale. The following issues should be considered when choosing:

①Selection of unit process flow

Whether the process flow selection of the feed mill unit is reasonable or not is closely related to the investment, energy consumption, use and maintenance convenience of equipment and workshops. For small-scale feed processing plants in rural areas, the equipment strives to be simple, which requires reasonable, simple and applicable process selection.

In rural areas, the following three forms are generally appropriate.

  • Continuously measure in proportion-crush-mix.
  • Batch measurement-crushing-mixing.
  • Crushing—measurement in batches—mixing.

②Selection of unit measurement form

There are two types of measurement: volumetric measurement and gravimetric measurement. The advantage of volumetric metering is that it saves labor, but it is not easy to change the formula; the weight metering accuracy is higher, and it is more convenient to change the formula. Therefore, it is more accurate and convenient to measure by manual weighing in general small-scale feed mills for farm.

③Choice of feed mill unit

The unit suitable for rural feed mill plants should have the following characteristics:

  • The formula is easy to change, the proportioning is accurate, the mixing uniformity is good, and the feed particle size is adjustable.
  • The farm feed mill unit has reasonable process flow, simple structure, convenient operation, easy maintenance, compact overall layout and small floor space.
  • Low noise, less dust, and the unit must have a safety control device.
  • Low energy consumption, low price, and easy-to-buy accessories.

 In summary, for farm use feed mill units with the same productivity, technical and economic indicators should be compared in terms of installed capacity, batching measurement method, power consumption, equipment selling price, required plant area, etc., and a comprehensive analysis should be carried out to select them. The required unit. Some feed factory providers will say that to build small feed processing plants in rural areas, a complete set of equipment with a productivity of 400 kg to 1,000 kg/hour should be selected. In fact, the production scale of many of our large farm customers has reached 10t/h. Very impressively speaking, we still recommend a specific analysis of specific situations, and everything is based on actual needs.

How to start a 3 tons per hour poultry feed mill plant?

The 3tph poultry feed pellet production line unit uses manual weighing ingredients. The raw materials need to be pre-weighed, and then fed into the production line from two different feeding ports. The raw materials that need to be crushed are fed from the pellet feeding port to the crusher in batches. The feed crusher uses the primary cleaning screen to feed the feed. The powder to be crushed is pre-weighed and enters the production line from the powder feeding port, and then is mixed by the mixer.

The mixed material can directly enter the finished product warehouse as a powder product, or enter the granulation section for granulation cooling processing , And finally use manual weighing and packing. The total equipment power of the unit is about 131KW; the size of the unit is about 12×6×11m; it needs to be equipped with a 0.3T boiler.

How to control commercial feed mill production?

About commercial feed mill quality assurance program or commercial feed mill quality control, this is a very broad question, because there are too many details to say. Today, RICHI is here to discuss several common quality control in the feed mill production process which links with you.

commercial feed mill production

(1) Control of crushing particle size

The key to this technology is to pulverize various feed materials to the most suitable particle size for animal use, so that the compound feed product can obtain the best feeding efficiency and economic benefits. To achieve this goal, it is necessary to in-depth study and grasp the best utilization of different animal feed materials for different particle sizes. For aquatic feed, micro-pulverization and ultra-fine pulverization technology must be used.

(2) Control of the accuracy of ingredients

Using error-free computer batching control technology, the batching amount of each batching component can be accurately controlled in each batching. Micro additives can be pre-mixed and pre-mixed and use high-precision micro-dosing system.

(3) Feed mill mixing uniformity control

This includes the mixing uniformity control technology of compound feed, concentrated feed, additive pre-mixed feed, and liquid feed. Choosing the proper mixer and proper mixing time and method is the key to ensuring the mixing quality.

(4) Feed mill granulation quality control

In this respect, the first thing is to control the quality of the feed, that is, to control the temperature, time, water addition and starch gelatinization degree of the tempering, so that the tempered state is most suitable for pelleting; the second is to control the powdering of hard pellets. Rate, cooling temperature and moisture, uniformity, consistency, and water resistance of particles.

To achieve these requirements, a reasonable steam supply and control system and conditioning, granulation, cooling, and screening equipment must be equipped, and the control parameters must be scientifically adjusted according to the different requirements of the product.

(5)Feed mill conditioning quality control

The quality control of extruded pellet feed or expanded feed is first to control the quality of the feed, that is, control the tempering temperature, time, water addition and starch gelatinization degree, so that the tempered state is most suitable for extrusion Puffing or expansion; secondly, it is necessary to control the maturation, density, powdering rate, cooling temperature and moisture, uniformity, consistency and water resistance of the extruded pellet feed.

To achieve these requirements, a reasonable steam supply and control system, conditioning, extrusion, expansion, drying, cooling, and screening equipment must be equipped, and the control parameters must be scientifically adjusted according to the different requirements of the product to obtain the product that customers are satisfied with.

(6) Quality control of liquid addition

With the continuous development of feed mill technology, many additives will be added to powder, granular and extruded feed in liquid form, and the activity of these additives will be retained to the greatest extent to reduce feed costs. One is to realize the precise control of the amount of liquid added, the other is to realize the uniform distribution or coating of the liquid in the feed, and the third is to ensure the stability and validity period of the liquid additive after spraying. This requires the use of high-performance atmospheric liquid spraying equipment, vacuum spraying equipment and control technology.

(7) Control of feed cross-contamination

The main places where feed cross-contamination occurs are: leakage and mixing during storage; cross-contamination between different products caused by residues in transportation equipment; cross-contamination caused by residues in silos and buffer hoppers ; Cross-contamination caused by residues in processing equipment; cross-contamination caused by harmful microorganisms, insects, etc.

Therefore, it is necessary to adopt residue-free transportation equipment, silos, commercial feed mill equipment, correct cleaning, sorting, washing and other technologies and independent production lines to meet the ever-increasing feed safety and sanitation requirements.

 (8) Quality control of clean and sanitary feed

The control technology in this area includes cross-contamination control technology, as well as the necessary heat treatment and sterilization technology for feed. Heat treatment includes high-temperature cooking, extrusion, high-pressure treatment, ultraviolet radiation and other process technologies. These technologies can usually be used in combination with ordinary processing technologies, or they can be implemented separately.
