The Quality of Animals Feed Pellets

The Quality of Animals Feed Pellets
The fist and core market for pellets is the feed industry. Feed pellets are produced for fish, poultry and birds. The positive effects of pelleting are well documented: higher feed density, no feed ingredient separation, better bacteriological quality, easier ingestion, improved growth and FCR. The two main physical indicators of pellet quality are:
hardness - measured by pellet resistance to breaking when submitted to external pressure
durability - measured by the level of "fines" produced during transportation from the feed factory to the farm, and distribution in the feeding system at farm

feed pellets 

Broiler reaction to the above two quality criteria is not easy to assess. In many experiments where better results are obtained with pelleted feed, precise mash characteristics were not given. Indeed, pellets always produce better results when compared to the same fine mash , even more the energy level is low. This confirms that the major effect of pelleting lies in improvement of ingestion. Pelleted feeds provide an easy-to-ingest, concentrated nutrient source that have been through a heating cycle and will therefore have a significantly reduced bacterial count.The heat of processing also assists with digestibility by pre-gelatinising starches and activating in-feed enzymes. However, these may vary according to the quality of the raw materials, and that of the grinding and pelleting processes.Pellet quality is, however, subject to many factors, including ration formulation, grist size and stream quality. Good quality pellets have several benefits: reduced waste, less segregation in the feed, improved palatability and shorter eating periods. Also animal performance and feed efficiency can benefit from pelleting the feed. But it is not always easy to make a good quality pellet. Additionally, it is extremely difficult to optimise all these points, and therefore there is a strong recommendation for feed millers to use a top quality pellet binder. Many pellet binders require high volume additions and lead to nutrient dilution of the feed resulting in the need to reformulate with more expensive nutrients, low inclusion binders are therefore seen to be preferable. Research has shown that animals fed with good-quality pellets have better growth performance and feed conversion than those fed with mash, reground pellets, or pellets with more fines.
Allance Pellet Mill is specilized to provides various feed pellet machines. For larger farms we have our ring die pellet plants, these can achieve a maximum output of 20t/h of feed pellets. For chickens , you could produce growers or layers pellets. Multi-layers can be mounted to produce certain high-grade feedstuff pellets.
