how to make broiler feed? ——broiler feed mill process

The following takes the most commonly used broiler feed pellet process as an example to briefly describe “how to make chicken feed for broilers”.

how to make broiler feed

01 Receiving of raw materials

  • Receiving of bulk raw materials: If transported by bulk trucks or trains, the raw materials should be weighed by a dump truck and then unloaded to the unloading pit.
  • Receiving of packaging raw materials: divided into two types: manual handling and mechanical receiving.
  • Receiving of liquid raw materials: Bottled and bottled materials can be directly transported into the warehouse manually.

02 Cleaning raw materials

Impurities in feed raw materials not only affect the quality of feed products but are also directly related to broiler feed machines and personal safety. In severe cases, the entire equipment may be damaged and affect the smooth progress of broiler feed production, so they should be removed in time.

The cleaning equipment of the broiler feed mill is mainly screening and magnetic separation equipment. The screening equipment removes large and long impurities such as stones, mud blocks, and sacks in the raw materials, and the magnetic separation equipment mainly removes iron impurities.

03 Crushing raw materials

The process flow of feed crushing is determined according to the required particle size, type of feed and other conditions. According to the number of times of raw material crushing, it can be divided into primary crushing process, circulating crushing process or secondary crushing process.

According to the combination form with the batching process, it can be divided into batching first and then crushing process and first crushing and then batching process.

04 Ingredients process

Currently commonly used technological processes include manual addition of ingredients, volumetric ingredients, ingredients with one warehouse and one scale, ingredients with multiple warehouses and several scales, ingredients with multiple warehouses and one scale, etc.

broiler feed mill process

05 Mixing process

Batch mixing is to mix various mixing components together according to the proportion of the formula, and send them to the “batch mixer” that works periodically for mixing in batches. This mixing method is more convenient to change the broiler chicken feed recipe. There is less mixing between them, and it is a commonly used mixing process at present. The opening and closing operations are relatively frequent, so most of them adopt automatic program control.

The continuous mixing process is to continuously measure various feed components separately and at the same time, and mix them into a stream containing various components in proportion. When this stream enters the continuous mixer, it is continuously mixed to form a uniform stream. Material flow, the advantage of this process is that it can be carried out continuously.

06 Conditioning process

Conditioning and tempering is the most important step in the granulation process. The quality of conditioning directly determines the quality of broiler pellet feed. The purpose of conditioning is to condition the mixed dry powder into powdered feed with a certain moisture and humidity that is conducive to pelleting.

Currently, most broiler feed mills complete the conditioning process by adding steam.

07 Granulation process

The uniformly tempered material first passes through the security magnet to remove impurities, and then is evenly distributed between the pressure mixer and the die.

In this way, the material enters the pelleting area from the compression area of the feed area, and is continuously squeezed out by the pressure roller clamp into the die hole. The feed is divided into columnar shapes, and as the die rotates, it is cut into pellets by a cutter fixed outside the die.

08 Cooling process

During the broiler feed pelleting process, due to the introduction of high-temperature, high-humidity steam and the extrusion of the material, a large amount of heat is generated.

As a result, when the pellet feed just comes out of the broiler chicken feed pellet machine, the moisture content reaches 16%-18% and the temperature reaches as high as 75 ℃ -85 ℃, under these conditions, the pellet feed is easily deformed and broken, and will also cause sticking and mildew during storage.

The moisture must be reduced to less than 14%, and the temperature must be reduced to less than 8 ℃ higher than the air temperature, which requires cooling.

09 Crumbling process

In the production process of the pellet machine, in order to save electricity, increase output, and improve quality, the finished pellets are often first made into small pellets of a certain size, and then crumbled into qualified products by a pellet crumbler according to the particle size for broiler feeding.

10 Screening process

After the pellet feed is crumbled, some powder clumps and other unqualified pellets will be produced. Therefore, the crumbled pellet feed needs to be screened into products with neat pellets and uniform size.

11 Packaging process

The finished product section is the last section of the broiler feed making process, which completes the storage, packaging, and transportation of finished feed. The traditional finished product section consists of a cache warehouse, packaging scales, dust removal air nets, etc., and mainly packages, preserves and sells finished feed in bags.

Broiler feed production quality control

During the operation of broiler poultry feed production line, there are some quality control points:

01 Batching system

The procedures that affect the accuracy of ingredients include: loading, adding small ingredients, adding grease, adding liquid, packaging, labeling, etc.

02 Particle quality

The physical quality of pellets is important in optimizing feed intake and growth in modern broiler chickens. If the feed is too small or too large (length and diameter) or too hard, spitting can occur. The general diameter is 3mm, with crushed materials used in the early stage, and the length in the middle and later stages is 4 mm.

Large grain pellets are good for intestinal health but bad for pelleting quality. Pelleting temperatures above 85°C will destroy nutrients. Good pelleting is important for pellet quality but will dissolve non-starch polysaccharides.

03 Quality of small ingredients (premix)

Adequate amounts of vitamins and minerals are critical for broiler chicken growth. The quality of vitamins (activity, stability, expiration date), minerals (activity, contaminants), and organic minerals are best purchased from professional premix manufacturers to ensure that they are added correctly (one batch to One batch, password confirmation).

In some areas, the construction of broiler feed mills requires local government approval. Approval may take several months or longer. To sum up, taking the above factors into consideration, it usually takes 6 months to a year to build a standard size broiler feed mill.


Crushing first and then batching vs. batching first and then crushing, which one is better for broiler feed mill?

Compound broiler feed is a mixture composed of a variety of raw materials (including additives) evenly mixed according to animal feeding standards and the nutritional characteristics of the raw materials.

Internationally, the production technology of broiler feed mill is generally divided into two categories: one is the process of crushing first and then batching; the other is the process of batching first and then crushing.

(1) Crushing first and then batching processing technology

The first crushing and then batching processing technology is to crush the raw materials to be crushed into powder one by one through the crushing equipment, and then enter their respective intermediate batching bins according to the proportion of the feed formula.

After measuring these powdery raw materials one by one, they enter the mixing equipment for mixing. After thorough mixing, the powdered compound feed will be formed. If it needs to be formed, it will enter the granulation system and be processed into granules.

The characteristics of the process are: this process adopts computer-controlled production, and the ingredients, mixing process and pre-mixing process need to be carried out according to the formula and production procedures; it is mostly used for large-scale broiler feed mill production, high proportion requirements and mixing uniformity, and many types of raw materials.

(2) Processing technology of batching first and then crushing

The first mixing and then crushing processing technology first mixes various raw materials (excluding vitamins and trace elements) together according to the ratio of the pet food formula using a metering method, and then crushes them.

The crushed powder enters the mixing equipment for batch processing. Mix continuously, and add diluted vitamins, trace elements and other additives at the beginning of mixing. After mixing evenly, it will be powdered pet food.

If the powdered compound feed needs to be pressed into pellet feed, the powdered feed will be conditioned with steam, heated to soften, and then entered into a broiler pelletizer for granulation, and then cooled and pelletized to become broiler feed.

The characteristics of the process are: the raw material warehouse is also an ingredient warehouse, reducing investment; no more warehouses are needed, and it can adapt to changes in material types; the working condition of the feed crusher will directly affect the work of the entire plant.

Advantages and disadvantages of the two processes

1. Crushing first and then batching process

  • Advantages: When crushing a single type of feed, the crusher can give full play to its crushing efficiency, reduce power consumption, increase output, and reduce production costs according to the physical characteristics of pet food. The screen or air volume of the crusher can also be adjusted according to different particle size requirements. Selection and replacement can achieve the best particle size quality of powdered compound feed.
  • Disadvantages: It requires more batching bins, inlet and outlet control valves, arch breaking and other vibration devices, so the production process is complex and the broiler feed mill construction investment is large; when more than three types of feed need to be crushed, multiple crushers must be used, otherwise will cause the crusher to frequently change varieties, operate frequently, have large load changes, low production efficiency, and high power consumption.

2. First batching and then crushing process

  • Advantages: simple process flow, compact structure, low investment, and energy saving. The raw material warehouse is the batching warehouse, thus eliminating the need for intermediate batching warehouses and intermediate control equipment.
  • Disadvantages: Part of the crushed feed needs to be crushed, resulting in too fine particles, which affects the output of the crusher and wastes electricity.

Generally speaking, both methods are used by broiler feed mill factories, and ultimately it depends on your needs, raw materials, formula, and whether there is a special process. (Find RICHI on YouTube)
