Ag Feed

When it comes to animal nutrition, feed particle size is a crucial factor to consider for optimal animal nutrition. The size of feed, whether it’s a coarse particle size or fine particle size, can play a significant role in the nutrient digestibility and absorption rates within the animal’s digestive tract. Consequently, using a roller mill for animal feed can produce the right-sized particles for improving feed intake, feed efficiency, and animal performance.

Better Quality Control Through Regular Testing

Measuring, recording, and analyzing particle size data has become increasingly vital for farms and agri-business operations. By doing this, businesses can determine the optimal feed structure for specific species, such as chicken feed or pig feed, and adjust their feed processing accordingly. This produces animal feed with  consistent particle sizes for better nutrient absorption and utilization.

Better Savings in Particle Size Reduction

One way to save on costs is by ensuring a consistent animal feed grind.

Having unfluctuating particle size allows for more precise feeding, which reduces waste and increases feed efficiency.

However, there are two other major issues affecting animal feed production that the ParticlePro™ can  solve.

Skilled Labor Shortage

As feed production processes become more advanced, technical skills are increasingly crucial to maintaining quality standards. Unfortunately, a growing number of feed producers are facing a skilled labor shortage.

Finding skilled grinder technicians who can consistently check the quality of the grind is becoming more challenging, making it harder to keep production lines running smoothly and efficiently.

By including ParticlePro™ in your animal feed processing, you can benefit from precise measuring and analysis without the cost of employing a full-time expert.

Rising Input Costs

Raw material costs have been risingCorn is being dried in the sun in recent years, with various factors contributing to the upward trend. For animal feed producers, raw materials make up a significant percentage of total production costs.

With the cost of feed material such as corn, soybeans, and wheat experiencing continuous increases, it becomes crucial to look for ways to reduce waste.

By optimizing their processing   techniques and machines, farmers can help minimize losses and achieve better cost savings.
