4 Million Chickens Build a Feed Pellet Production Line

  • Clicks:

We know that small chicken farms generally buy feed pellets, but the price of feed pellets is relatively high. Therefore, some poultry farms with budgets will purchase feed pellet machines to produce feed.The investment return period of small-volume feed pellet equipment is generally one or two years. For large-scale poultry farms, because of the great demand for feed, they generally invest in chicken feed pellet production line, which can greatly reduce the cost of feeding in the long run. What we are introducing today is a feed pellet production line built for 4 million chickens, producing 12,000 tons of chicken feed pellets a year.

In 2012 the owner of the Swedish chicken farm Rösäng, Ulrik Helgstrand, invested in a feed mill and silo in order to optimize the annual production of feed for approximately 4 million chicken. Mr Helgstrand produces the feed centrally in one location and distributes the feed to three additional chicken farms within 50 km from Rösäng in Sweden. The annual production of finished feed is 12,000 tonnes (2019) which are used exclusively for the feeding of the chickens bred by Rösäng Lantbruk.

The feed plant setup

The plant is made up of several raw materials silos, the content of which is milled in a disc mill, and 16 pre-mixers that feed premix and calcium into two-step horizontal mixers. Liquid fat is added to the feed mix from separate silos with heat coils that keep the fat in a liquid form. After mixing has been completed, the finished feed is pelleted and led to and stored in silos with a capacity of 100 tonnes each and to containers for further distribution.

Why produce own feed?

Mr Helgstrand’s primary reasons for investing in his own feed production is the significant reduction of feed costs and better control of feed quality which can be changed very accurately to benefit the growth of the chicken. Also, he can produce many types of feed at once and change the recipe quickly. Finally, he is able to buy cereals and other raw materials when prices are low, allowing him to cut costs even further. At Rösang they produce six types of feed at once and changes the recipes of feed every fifth day. This would be very difficult to do if he bought feed from an external feed supplier.

Besides the chicken feed, approx. 40 hectares of cloves, Timothy and other grass seeds totalling approx. 16,000 sqm is produced. Timothy is first and foremost grown for seed production.
