Pellet feed vs. powder feed in cattle and sheep feed production line

  • Clicks:

We know that pellet feed and powder are processed by feed equipment. The powder is crushed by the feed hammer mill, and the pellet is crushed by the pellet machine.

What are the benefits of cattle and sheep eating pellet compared to powder?

1. The maturity of pellet feed is better. During the pelleting process, the starch is gelatinized, which is conducive to animal digestion and absorption;

2. Pellet feed is subjected to high-temperature quenching and tempering of steam, and harmful microorganisms and bacteria in the material are killed, which can effectively prevent animal pests and diseases;

3. Effectively reduce feed waste. There is a problem of dust in the feeding process of powder, which results in waste of feed. Pellet feed can effectively solve the problem of dust waste of powder.
