I'm looking for 10t/h and 20t/h cattle feed making plants, please give me quotation of the cattle feed pellet machine , we want to use it for making livestock feed. This is a customer in Zimbabwe who wants to know about cattle feed pellet machines, the output is relatively large. First of all, we must understand why we use cattle feed. Using the feed pellets produced by the cattle feed machine can reduce the waste of cattle feed, Reduce the auto rating of feed,Decrease the time of feed intake and energy expenditure,Kill harmful organisms and Enhance the palatability of feed.

Benefits of Using Feed Pellets

  • Nutritionally balanced rations for your livestock.
  • No hay dust to deal with.
  • No waste and a 10% percent saving over hay bales scattered and not consumed.
  • Easier to ship, store and handle than hay.
  • Easier to more accurately gauge the amount of feed necessary for your cattle and horses than traditional hay and grain feeding procedure.
  • Nutritionally optimized for your animals’ dietary needs.

Factors affecting pellet quality

1.Feed formulation

Some feed ingredients have good impact on pellet quality, while others could adverse the quality. Unfortunately, corn-soy diets are not the ideal diets that could achieve the desired pellet quality. Dietary inclusion of wheat grain or wheat by products (wheat midds, wheat gluten) can increase pellet durability, because of the high protein (gluten) and hemi-cellulose content of wheat in comparison to corn or corn co-products. Similarly inclusion of oat as a partial substitute of corn can increase pellet quality. We can rank feed grains according to their positive impacts on pellet quality from best to worst as followings: oat, wheat, barley, corn, sorghum.

2.Feed ingredients particle size

Although doubted by some researchers, it is accepted that decreasing ingredient’s particle size has a good influence on pellet quality. However, over grinding is not recommended to avoid power wastage, reduced production rate and suboptimal gizzard development. On the other hand, coarse grinding eases pellet break down and decreases starch gelatinization (high degree of gelatinization is required to produce good pellets).

3.Steam conditioning

When mash feed passes through the conditioner, it will expose to high pressure steam. This steam provides the heat and moisture required for starch gelatinization, particles adhesion, feed semi-digestion, and feed pathogens damage. The steam temperature and the time that mash feed is stayed in the conditioner have major influence on the durability of the produced pellets. Conditioning the feed at a temperature of 80° C is sufficient to produce good quality pellets. The minimum time that feed should stay in the conditioning tube to produce durable pellets is 30 seconds. Long time conditioners, in which the feed can stay in the conditioner for about 3-4 minutes, can be used to improve pellet stickiness.

4.Die/roll specifications

Pellets are produced via roll pressing of the hot mash against metal die. Thicker dies (long die channels) have a positive impact on pellet durability due to increasing the friction time between feed particles and die wall with subsequent more starch gelatinization. Most of starch gelatinization occurs when feed passes through the dies. Similar result can be obtained via using small hole dies. This means that dies of 60 mm thickness are better than those of 50 or 40 mm thickness, and that dies with holes of 3 mm diameter are better than those with holes of 5 mm diameter. However, using thicker or small holes dies have negative impact on pellet throughput. Additionally, increasing the distance between roll and die from 0.1 to 2 mm resulted in an increase in the pellet durability.


After leaving pellet mill, the temperature of the pellets is ranged from 70-90? C and the moisture is ranged from 15-17%. Proper cooling (via using stream air cooling machine) is required to lower pellet temperature to about 8? C above the ambient temperature, and moisture % to be 12%. The cooling machine can be of either horizontal or vertical types. Quick cooling leads to removal of more moisture and heat from the surface of the pellets than their core, and the resultant pellets will be brittle. On the other hand, prolonged cooling produces very dry pellets that can be exposed to abrasion and can be of low palatability.

How To Choose 10 T/h And 20 T/h Cattle Feed Pellet Machine

1. Look at the brand

Without knowing the cattle feed pellet machine, choosing a big brand is guaranteed.

2. Look at the quality

The quality of the pellet machine is related to the performance of the pellets and the length of the service life.

3. Look at the manufacturer

When screening reliable cattle feed pellet machine manufacturers, it is necessary to visit their factory workshops.

4. Look at the after-sales

The use of any equipment will cause problems, and it is necessary to choose a manufacturer with after-sales guarantee.
