animal feed pellets are produced for fish, animals and birds. There are many benefits to pellets over loose feed and also to producing feed pellets on a small scale. In pelleted form you can produce a feed which has the exact blend of nutrients, vitamins and minerals required. Also in pellet form the fish, animal or bird will consume the pellet whole with all the ingredients. With loose feed you cannot be sure that all the ingredients have been consumed and ingested. Also if a special medication needs to be administered you can ratio out a specific amount of the special feed pellets and be confident the right amount of medication has been absorbed. Our Animal Feed Pellet Mill can be used to produce pellets for a small farm or be used to produce niche custom feed blends for sale with up to 100 kg/h output.
how to make animal feed pellets
Unless you are feeding very few chickens, making your own feeds requires a feed grinder. You can buy a small feed hammer mill or feed crusher match to your feed pellet mill. For efficiency, you can make a “premix” of the finer, more powdery ingredients, measuring it out in amounts sufficient for 25-lb. batches and storing it until use. When ready to make feed, you grind (coarsely) the corn and peas, dump in the premix, and add the small grains whole. You can mix thoroughly by hand, then feed immediately or store, for a few days only, in a covered bin.
