RICHI 8-10 tons aqua Fish Feed Mill solution

Cattle Premix feed production line

Cattle premix feed production line is used to process cattle premix feed. The cattle premix is composed of a carrier that mixes one or more different trace raw materials, such as vitamins, minerals, trace elements or drugs, and they do not contain protein feed. The amount of premix used in feed is usually 1% or less.

How is cattle feed made?  cattle feed production process

The cattle feed production process technology can be briefly summarized as: raw material reception and cleaning → crushing → batching → mixing → forming → measurement and packaging and other main processes.

(If it is a cattle feed production line for processing grass-containing feed, depending on the different storage conditions of the grass, it is necessary to add equipment such as bale breakers, hay cutters, and grass grinders to the process. Eventually, the grass raw materials will appear in the form of grass powder in the mixing section. )

cattle feed production process

01 Raw material receiving

Receiving raw materials is the first process to ensure the quality of feed products. The settings of receiving equipment and processes must ensure the safe storage of raw materials. During the receiving process, raw material cleaning equipment must be reasonably combined.

02 Raw material cleaning

Impurities mixed in cattle feed ingredients, if not cleaned in advance, will affect product quality and even affect animal growth, damage equipment during processing, and affect production. Generally, the cleaning of animal-derived feed, minerals, trace elements and other raw materials is mostly completed in raw material processing plants.

Cereal raw materials and their processing by-products must be cleaned of ropes, cloths, plastic films, sand, metal and other debris. The usual method of cleaning raw materials is to first screen and then magnetically separate, supplemented by suction and dust removal facilities.

03 Crushing process

The crushing process is one of the main processes in the cattle feed production line. The quality of crushing directly affects the quality, output, power consumption and other comprehensive costs of feed production, and also affects the intrinsic quality and feeding effect of the feed. For crushing particle size control, just select the corresponding screen hole for the hammer crusher.

04 Dosing system

Ingredients are the core part of the feed processing technology, and the correct implementation of the formula is guaranteed by the ingredients process. The changes in the batching system are mainly to adapt to the increase in added varieties, the reduction in the amount added, and the improvement of weighing accuracy.

At the same time, the weighing cycle should be shortened and the production volume per unit time should be increased.

How is 1-2t/h cattle feed made
How is 2-4t/h cattle feed made
How is 20t/h cattle feed made

05 Mixing system

Mixing is an important link to ensure feed quality and improve feed returns. The key to the mixing process is how to ensure uniform mixing. There are three main aspects to consider: mixing time, mixer door and preventing grading after mixing. The mixing time is generally designed to match the batching time of the scale and the mixing time recommended by the mixer manufacturer.

06 Pelleting & Cooling Process

The granulation process includes: granulation and cooling. After the mixed materials are conditioned from the pelleting bin, they are sent to the compression chamber of the cattle feed pellet machine and compressed into pellet feed.

The newly made pellets are still in a state of high humidity and temperature and need to be cooled in a cooling equipment. After cooling in the cooling tower, it is screened by screening equipment to obtain standard pellets. We can also provide cattle feed extruder to process extruded cattle feed pellets.

07 Screening & packaging section

The feed is weighed from the finished product warehouse through a packaging scale, put into packaging bags, and then the packer inserts the label and seals it, and then is transported to the warehouse by a transport truck for stacking.

The above process is based on the processing of complete compound cattle feed as an example. If you want to process other types of cattle feed, contact us to customize your cattle livestock feed production line plan!

How to choose a suitable cattle feed production line?

In the agricultural field, the choice of animal feed production line is an important decision, which directly affects the growth effect and breeding efficiency of animals. Especially for cattle husbandry, the quality of feed is directly related to the growth rate and meat quality of the animals. So, how to choose a suitable cattle feed production line?

  1. Clarify the classification of cattle feed production lines.
    Generally speaking, powder feed production lines are suitable for producing feeds with lower protein content, while pellet feed production lines are suitable for producing feeds with higher protein content. Therefore, when selecting a feed production line, it needs to be determined according to the type of feed produced.
  2. Consider the production capacity of the cattle feed production line.
    Production capacity refers to the amount of feed the production line can produce every day.
    When selecting a feed production line, we need to determine the production capacity of the production line based on the scale of investment, the scale of the cattle feed factory, the size and demand of the breeding farm. If the investment is large or the scale of the farm is large and the demand is large, then you need to choose a large-capacity feed production line.
  3. Consider the price of a cattle feed production line.
    Price is an important factor affecting breeding costs. When choosing a feed production line, you need to choose a reasonably priced production line based on your own economic conditions.
    At the same time, it is also important to note that although lower-priced production lines may save some costs on initial investment, in long-term operation, the overall operating costs may increase due to the costs of maintenance and replacement of parts.
  4. Consider the stability and reliability of the cattle feed production line.
    Stability and reliability are important factors to ensure the normal operation of the feed production line. When choosing a feed production line, you need to choose a production line with good stability and low failure rate. At the same time, we also need to regularly maintain and inspect the production line to ensure its stable operation.

In general, choosing a suitable cattle feed production line requires comprehensive consideration of many factors. We need to make a selection based on the type of feed produced, the size and needs of the farm, our own economic conditions, and the stability and reliability of the equipment.

Why invest in cattle feed production business?

The cattle feed market size is expected to grow from USD 84.5 billion in 2023 to USD 100.36 billion in 2028, at a CAGR of 3.50% during the forecast period (2023-2028).

Globally, the beef cattle market is expected to witness growth over the forecast period owing to factors such as increasing demand for quality beef and high growth in beef consumption in Western countries such as the United States, United Kingdom, and Asia. China is the largest consumer and producer of beef, and the number of beef cattle is also growing.

Why invest in cattle feed production business

In 2021, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) predicts that by 2050, demand for cattle products will increase by 1.7% year-on-year, with dairy demand expected to increase by 55% and beef demand by 70%.

Growing demand for milk and dairy products in developing countries will drive the global market over the forecast period.

Europe and North America currently account for a significant share of dairy and meat consumption, while the Asia-Pacific and Latin America regions are expected to grow rapidly. Increased demand for dairy products and beef has led to increased industrialization of the cattle industry.

This means increased herd size, increased use of compound feeds and better scientific management of cattle. This phenomenon contributes to the growth of the cattle feed market.

It is foreseeable that the market size of the cattle feed industry will expand year by year. With the growth of population and improvement of living standards, people’s demand for beef is also increasing. And these demands will eventually promote the explosion of the cattle feed production industry!
