What is hemp pellet?

hemp pellet

Hemp pellets are feed products made by mixing the grass powder raw materials crushed to a certain particle size with water vapor and then pressing them through a hemp pellet machine.

According to the different processing raw materials, hemp feed pellets can be divided into two types:

  • One is to press hemp powder into granules to facilitate storage and transportation of pure grass granules;
  • The second is to use hemp meal as the basic material, add concentrate or other auxiliary materials according to the different characteristics and feeding standards of herbivores, configure it into a complete compound or nearly complete compound feed, and then press it into grass pellets through a hemp pellet machine, which is called complete compound hemp feed pellets or mixed hemp pellets.

Among them, the processing of mixed hemp pellets can be formulated according to the nutritional requirements of different livestock and poultry. It has the characteristics of complete nutrition, reasonable price and suitable for long-term storage, and has become a new growth point in the field of pellet feed.

How does a hemp pellet mill work?

How does a hemp pellet mill work

In the hemp pellet feed industry, the process of polymerizing powdered raw materials or mixtures through hydrothermal quenching and mechanical compression through die holes is called hemp granulation.

The working principle of hemm pellet mill:

Hemp meal is stirred and extruded during the pelletizing process. Under normal circumstances, the temperature of the hemp pellets just coming out of the sieve reaches about 80°C.

When cooling from high temperature to room temperature, the moisture content generally decreases by 3%-5%. Therefore, the moisture content of the cooled hemp pellets does not exceed 11%-13%. Because the moisture content is very low, it is suitable for long-term storage without mold and deterioration.

In addition to compressing hemp pellet feed, the RICHI hemp pelleting machine can also process hemp fuel pellets. Because it adopts the principle of roller granulation, this pellet mill equipment can continuously produce hemp granules and has high production efficiency.

hemp Pellets vs hemp, Why process hemp pellets?

Compared with hemp, hemp pellet feed processed by a hemp pellet mill has the following advantages and main functions in agricultural and animal husbandry production:

It is conducive to the comprehensive development and utilization of hemp resources in rural pastoral areas.

The local unconventional forage resources, agricultural and sideline products, etc. that have not been fully and effectively developed and utilized are crushed and mixed with high-quality forage powder in proportion to process into mixed grass hemp pellets, which can turn low-quality roughage into something that ruminant livestock like to eat. Hemp can expand the source of forage.

 It is helpful to regulate the nutritional content of hemp pellet feed.

Mixed hemp pellets can meet the nutritional needs of ruminant livestock such as cattle and sheep at different growth and development stages and different production performance requirements.

It is conducive to maintaining a relatively stable environment in the rumen, effectively preventing disorders of the digestive system of ruminants, and improving fermentation, digestion, and growth in the rumen.

Absorption and metabolism proceed normally, reducing the occurrence of diseases such as abomasal displacement, ketonemia, milk fever, acidosis, anorexia and nutritional stress.

hemp Pellets vs hemp

It is helpful to improve the hemp feed intake of livestock and the digestibility of forage.

During the hemp pellet mill pressing process of mixed grass hemp pellets, due to the combined effects of moisture, temperature and pressure, the starch contained in the feed is gelatinized and the activity of enzymes is enhanced, significantly improving the palatability and digestibility of the feed.

The formation process of hemp pellets can kill parasite eggs and other pathogenic microorganisms, reduce their adverse effects on digestion, and increase feed intake of ruminants, thereby increasing feed digestibility by 10% to 20%.

 Helps maintain the physical strength of livestock and reduce physical energy consumption of livestock.

Feeding livestock with mixed hemp pellets can shorten the feeding time (to 1/3 of powder) and reduce the physical energy consumption of livestock.

It has been measured that the time for cattle to eat ordinary hemp is 60 to 90 minutes each time, while the time to eat mixed pellet feed is 45 to 60 minutes each time, and the feeding time can be shortened by about 30% to 50%.

It is conducive to improving the production environment and increasing production efficiency.

The feed components of mixed hemp pellets will not be classified during storage, transportation and feeding. The nutritional ingredients can maintain their uniformity and stability, making it easy to control the feeding amount, and are not easy to dust, reducing environmental pollution and natural losses, and reducing feeding and wastage of forage during storage and transportation.

Conducive to the effective storage, transportation and safe production of hemp.

  • The volume of mixed hemp pellet feed is smaller than that of bulk feed, which saves warehouse space during storage, is easy to package, transport and mechanize feeding, and saves costs;
  • Under the pressure of the hemp pellet mill, the feed density increases (more than 5 times that of bulk hemp) and maintains a certain hardness, reducing the air contact surface of the hemp pellets. Some additives can also be added during the pelleting process. It can be safely stored for a long time and is conducive to large-scale and standardized production;
  • It is not easy to be adulterated during the sales and circulation process, which is helpful to ensure the quality and safety of feed.
Pelletized hemp hay

Start your hemp pellets production business

With the development of economy and foreign trade, hay and grass products have gradually been commercialized. In the production process of hemp pellets, the processing cost of grass pellets increases and the technical requirements are higher.

However, many studies have found that high-quality grass pellet feed can significantly improve livestock production performance, and the economic benefits brought by this are enough to offset the cost of pelleting.

This is also the reason why more and more people are setting up hemp pellet production line, alfalfa pellet production line, timothy pellet plant, hay pellet production line, and other grass pellet production lines. Everyone has done feasibility analysis. If it is not profitable, no one will invest in this field.

In addition, grass pellets have always been one of the important materials for the grass industry to export and earn foreign exchange. Therefore, the processing of grass pellets has broad development prospects.
