Alfalfa is a good raw material for animal feed, and it is made into silage for animal consumption in many areas. Alfalfa usually has a high feeding value in common hay. Today, I will mainly introduce to you the construction of alfalfa pellet production line by the alfalfa feed pellet factory.


Alfalfa, also called lucerne and called Medicago sativa in binomial nomenclature, is a perennial flowering plant in the legume family Fabaceae. It is cultivated as an important forage crop in many countries around the world. It is used for grazing, hay, and silage, as well as a green manure and cover crop. The name alfalfa is used in North America. The name lucerne is the more commonly used name in the United Kingdom, South Africa, Australia, and New Zealand. Alfalfa is widely grown throughout the world as forage for cattle, and is most often harvested as hay, but can also be made into silage, grazed, or fed as greenchop.


As high quality coarse fodder for calf after weaning, alfalfa has been widely accepted by ranch, however, in the use process we will often find that a large number of alfalfa powder deposition in the bottom of the tank that is not fed, resulting in waste. A lot of grass powder into the calf nose and mouth, which also can make the calves would not feed alfalfa hay. With a alfalfa pellet production line, these problems can be avoided if alfalfa pellets are used instead of alfalfa hay. Alfalfa pellets can provide high quality fiber, rich in mineral content, high protein, and are easy to transport, storage, crushing, can also be widely applied to sows, rabbits, sheep, geese, ducks and other livestock and poultry, they can be use as feed directly or be added to feed formula as feed ingredients.

Steps Of Producing Alfalfa Pellets In Alfalfa Feed Pellet Plant

First step

When you are going to pelletize, the first step is drying alfalfa until the moisture is about 15%. The wetter or dryer material will affect the final quality of alfalfa pellets. You can resort to a drier, so that you can get the ideal moisture quickly. Or you can dry it naturally.

Second step

The second step you have to do is grinding alfalfa. The original form of alfalfa is not appropriate for the alfalfa pellet mill to process directly. When you grind it to small powders, the pelletizing rate and pellets quality will be better.

Need to add that if your target production is feed pellet, in this process, you can add some other nutrients depend on your requirement. Such as the other herbages, sugar and proteins etc..And then mix them up.

Final step

Then the most important step is coming. Put the alfalfa to the feeder of alfalfa pellet mill, they will be compressed to columned holes on the die and discharged from the ring die pellet machine.

Advantages of alfalfa pellets

High quality protein. Worldwide research in animal nutrition proved the high quality of alfalfa protein. Alfalfa’s protein utilization improves quality of milk, meat and eggs. That makes it an efficient forage, reducing the requirement of supplements in animal’s diet, for more economical farming.

High nutrient availability. Natural nutrient complement of the plant is preserved in alfalfa pellets by the processing and storage procedures. Beta carotene is a precursor of Vitamin A, promoting health and good performance. Alfalfa pellets are a natural and recognized source of: Fiber, Vitamin E, Calcium, Sulphur-containing amino acids, Selenium, Potassium.

Fibre source Alfalfa is a superior fibre source due to a lower proportion of cell walls and a higher proportion of digestible carbohydrates and protein. Therefore, alfalfa can be consumed in larger quantities than most forages.

Reduction of Heat Stress. Our Alfalfa pellets bulks is rich in available minerals and vitamins, which are especially necessary in hot or humid climates. The available minerals of alfalfa rapidly replace the ones lost in sweating, reducing heat stress and allowing the animal to ingest same quantities of feed as in cooler climates, with benefits on milk production levels.
