Chicken Feed Making Machine in Kenya
To reduce feed costs, which account for approximately 70% of total poultry production costs, indigenous poultry feed enterprises were created. In Kenya, the emphasis is on encouraging local feed enterprises to use local ingredients in the production of feed for poultry. These enterprises are increasing in number due to the above.
Increased availability of local feed production is the best way to meet the growing demand for poultry feed.
Because of the ease of access to raw materials and farmers’ access, Indigenous Feed Enterprises can be seen as an honest approach. While governments and individuals have used a variety of strategies (e.g., price policies, input subsidies and production credit, and liberalization) to increase the output of these poultry-feed enterprises, their performance in meeting the requirements of the poultry industry is poor. The demand for products from the enterprises is increasing daily, which is quite interesting.
Making Chicken Feed Pellets
The advancement of feed pellets technology has made it more popular to make feed pellets for poultry, broiler, and other animals. This is true for many people, including farmers and new entrepreneurs. Making chicken/broiler feed pellets is a great way to get started.
Lima Machinery is a professional supplier and manufacturer of chicken feed pellets.
What are the benefits of making chicken feed pellets?
There are three kinds of chicken feed available. You can choose from mash, pellet or crumble. Perhaps you are wondering which of the three types of chicken feeds is best for your chickens and poultry?
Mash is more efficient than crumble because it separates grains. This leaves us with pellet food, a chicken feed that provides the right nutrition for broilers and chickens. We have compared pellet feed with mash to see how easy it is to make.
These are the Highlights of Chicken Pellet food that the Mash doesn’t have:
- Pellets reduce the amount of waste produced by chickens’ eating habits, water soiling and chicken feed.
- Pellets reduce the bulkiness of chicken feed by 18%
- Pellet feed is good for chickens because it reduces the risk of salmonella. Pellet feed also prevents mold growth inhibitors.
- It is safe for chickens and easy to make. Pellet food is easier to mix, smaller particle sizes, and more ingredient mixing.
- Pellet food saves 15% on chicken feed
- The vitamins in Pellet food are essential for chickens to have a healthy digestive system.
Chicken Feed Making Machines for Sale
The essential equipment for the production of chicken/poultry feed pellets is the chicken feed pellet making machinery. Also known as poultry feed making equipment. Let’s now look at the popular Chicken Feed Pellet Machines. The small-scale pellet mill is the most affordable and popular of all the types of poultry feed pellet machinery.
The Small Chicken Feed Pellet Mill is a superior choice
Widely used animal feed pellets
You can use a chicken pellet machine to make pellets for cattle, pig, chicken, horse, duck, fish, and rabbit feed.
Different choices available with different capacities and die diameters
There are many sizes available depending on the feed production capacity. They can produce as little as 50kg/hour or as much as 1 tonne/hour. You can also make pelleted feed with different sizes of die.
Different power supplies meet different needs
You can also power it with electricity by using an electric motor or an internal combustion engine that runs on petrol or diesel. A mill powered by electricity is more environmentally friendly and more efficient. However, a petrol-powered unit or a diesel engine may be more convenient for farmers who live far from the grid.
Lower cost than other models in the industry
Lima Machinery’s small poultry/poultry pellet mill is a better choice than the one used in the chicken feed machine industry. It produces a high output and low amount of energy. While other manufacturers can produce between 10 and 15 kg/kw, Lima Machinery’s production rate is usually between 0.05 to 0.06 degrees per kg.
The main machines for making chicken feed pellets
Modern mechanization and intensive poultry farming have made it possible to use a variety of different types of poultry feed making machines to make chicken/broiler food. Making feed pellets for chicken is easy. The equipment required to make feed pellets includes a grinding machine, mixing machine and dryer.
Crushing – Grinding Machine, Hammer Mill
The crushing or grinding of chicken feed ingredients makes it easier for birds to eat and digest faster. This increases their production of eggs for layers or meat for broilers.
Mixing – Mixing Machine
The mixing machine is used for uniform and even mixing of raw materials. You will find different ingredients in poultry feeds, such as wheat bran, corn flour, fish meal (bone meal), soybean meal, and all other ingredients and minerals. Mixing all ingredients together in a uniform and even manner creates poultry meal.
Pelletizing – Pellet Mill Machine
Now the mixture can be fed into a pellet mill feeder. It will then go to a die intruder and roller. The average moisture content for extruded pellets is between 16-17%. The pellet mill machine converts the powdered feeds to pellets. This can further improve feed efficiency in poultry farming, increase production in terms in egg production, or meat production, and reduce the cost of cure.
Cooling Process – Cooler
Cooling the finished pellets is the final step. This will allow them to retain their shelf life and make them similar to outdoor temperatures.
Packaging process – Packer
It is recommended that you equip your packing machine to increase the efficiency of your entire production process, whether you are making poultry feed pellets or setting up a line to produce them.
