Applications Of Pig Feed Plant

The RICHI pig feed plant can be used to process pig pellets, pig powdered feed, pig crumbled feed and other types of feed. Different requirements and different pig feed production line schemes can be applied to pig feed mill factories and pig farms of various sizes.

Pig feed is the material basis for the development of pig breeding, and more than 70% of the cost of breeding is the expenditure of pig feed. However, proper processing of pig feed can not only reduce feed waste, but also improve product quality and animal feed utilization rate, thereby reducing breeding costs and obtaining good economic benefits.

complete pig feed plant

Pig feed is usually a feed for pigs that is composed of protein feed, energy feed, roughage, green feed, silage feed, mineral feed and feed additives. Divided into categories: complete feed, concentrated materials and premixed materials. The complete feed is a four-part compound feed consisting of protein feed, energy feed, roughage and additives.

complete pig feed plant

The complete feed on the market is mainly pelletized feed that has been machine-processed and pelletized, some of which are extruded pellets, which can be used directly and can fully meet the nutritional needs of the pigs being fed. At present, the most common pig feed is complete pellet feed. Pig pellet feed is a refined feed made by pulverizing and mixing various feed materials through the combination of high temperature, pressure and moisture.

During the pig feed plant pelleting process, steam not only gelatinizes the starch and improves the digestibility of feed, but high temperature can also disinfect, sterilize and kill insects, reducing the risk of diseases of pigs.

Pelleting can improve the utilization rate of animal feed and reduce the incidence of ketosis, poor appetite and acidosis; pelleting can improve the animal's feed conversion rate and daily weight gain. In addition, compared with powdered feed, pig pellets have better palatability and can avoid nutritional imbalance caused by pigs' picky eating of certain feeds.

Therefore, the application of pellet feed in pig production will have broad prospects.

Working Principle Of pig feed plant


Raw material receiving section

The receiving of raw materials is divided into the receiving of main raw materials and the receiving of side raw materials. The receiving of main raw materials refers to grains, and the receiving of secondary raw materials refers to raw materials other than grains.

The main raw materials required for pig feed production are transported into the factory by automobiles, weighed and inspected by automobiles, cleaned by receiving equipment, magnetically separated, and transported into bulk warehouses for storage.
Pig Feed Pellet Production Line


Raw material cleaning and crushing section

The raw materials that need to be crushed enter the production workshop through the conveying equipment, and the impurities are removed through the preliminary cleaning screen, and the magnetic impurities are removed by the magnetic separator before entering the smashing warehouse.

The raw materials in the powder silo are crushed to the qualified particle size by the pig feed hammer mill crusher and then distributed to the raw material silo for storage by the conveying equipment; the raw materials that do not need to be crushed enter the pig feed plant through the conveying equipment, and the impurities are removed by the primary cleaning screen and the magnetic impurities are removed by the magnetic separator, enter different batching bins for storage.

Ingredients and mixing section

According to the requirements of the pig feed formula, various raw materials participating in the ingredients enter the mixer at one time through the computer-controlled ingredients weighing. Two batching scales, one large and one small, are used in the batching process to ensure the accuracy of the batching and shorten the batching time.

Some feed additives, vitamins and other raw materials with a small amount are manually weighed and then manually put into the mixer. Various raw materials are mixed in the pig feed mixer machine, and various liquid raw materials (oil, methionine) are added during the pig feed plant mixing process.

The mixed finished powder can be granulated according to the needs, or it can be directly packed into the finished product warehouse or loaded into the bulk truck to leave the pig feed plant.


Pelleting section

The pig feed raw materials that need to be granulated are tempered by a conditioner, so that the temperature of the material reaches 80-85 degrees, and the moisture reaches about 17%, and then granules of different diameters are made by a pig feed granulator.

Afterwards, the unqualified materials are re-granulated through classification and screening, and the qualified pellets products enter the finished product warehouse and pack them into the warehouse or enter the bulk warehouse and use the bulk truck to carry them out of the pig feeds plant
pig feed making machine price pig feed machine in kenya

Note that in the pig feed production line pelletizing process, the feed components are extruded out of the ring die of the pig feed pelletizer under pressure. The pig feed plant pelleting process itself can frictionally heat the feed.

Most pig feed companies have steam heating the feed before pelleting, but some pig feed companies do not use steam heating, that is, cold pelleting, and only rely on the pressure of the pig feed pellet mill to make the feed extruded from the ring die. Therefore, the pig feed pellet production line granulation process includes dry granulation or wet granulation process.

Pig feed formula design requirements in pig feed plant


Flexible use of breeding standards according to different breeds and different growth stages of pigs

Different breeds of pigs require different nutrition. Lean pigs and fat pigs have different requirements for protein. Under normal circumstances, lean pigs require more protein, and three-way hybrid lean pigs require more protein than binary hybrid lean pigs.

For example, when piglets grow up to 5-8 weeks, their digestive system matures day by day, pigs weigh nearly 10kg, demand for starch increases, and piglets grow fast. At this time, it is necessary to consider the nutritional needs of the piglets and whether the feed is also considered. It is palatable and easy to digest. For different types of pigs, the breeding standards should be used flexibly.

cost of setting up a pig feed plant


Pay Attention To The Availability Of Pig Feed Raw Materials In pig feed plant

The quality of the pig feed raw materials must be reliable and they must have the nutritional value that meets the requirements. Raw materials are the basis of pig feed, so the choice of raw materials is the most basic and the beginning of making good feed.

In addition, the stability of the pig feed raw materials should be high, which is convenient for subsequent pig feed production. Good raw materials have high utilization rate and good stability, and the products produced not only meet the nutritional needs of pigs, but also meet the requirements of labeled production.


Pay attention to the limit of various ingredients in the pig feed formula

The additives commonly used in pig feed include pine needle powder, glauber's salt, kelp powder, zeolite, orange peel powder and so on. Additives can provide trace elements required by pigs, play a subtle role in regulating the physiological functions of pigs, help pigs grow and develop, promote pigs' appetite, and improve piglet's disease resistance.

For piglets, improving disease resistance is very important. There is a limit on the proportion of various ingredients, especially the amount of minerals and additives must meet the requirements to meet the pig feed line production standards. Pengcheng suckling pig feed can effectively improve the physique of suckling pigs and enhance the immunity of piglets.


Pay attention to the safety of pig feed

Pork is one of the most common foodstuffs in people's lives. The safety of feed is directly related to food safety. Food safety issues have become a hot topic of public concern in recent years. Therefore, the safety of pig feed is not only related to the social benefits of pig feed enterprises, but also whether the product involved is legal will directly affect the long-term development of the pig feed company. From feed ingredients to packaging, pig feed manufacturers need to strictly control.
