Cattle Feed Pellet Machine Solves the Problem of Cattle Feeding in Winter

Beef cattle enter the winter, and the breeding method should be gradually changed from grazing to house feeding. At this time, coarse fodder storage is required. Forage, corn, rice straw and silage, yellow storage, micro-storage and ammoniation can be combined to produce coarse fodder. If there are cattle feed pellets in the cattle farms with conditions, a kind of feed pellets pressed by a feed pellet machine will have good palatability, comprehensive nutrition and no waste. And it is convenient for transportation and storage. 

The cattle feed pellet machine can produce within 40 tons/hour. It can press a variety of raw materials into pellets, such as straw, corn, soybeans, grass, hay, alfalfa, sugar beet and other crops. It can also add vitamins, minerals, and chemicals. Preservatives and other necessary trace ingredients. Granular feed can be digested well and improve cattle performance.

How to make cattle feed pellets?

The major operations involved in the production of cattle feed pellets are: raw materials preparation, primary crushing, molasses mixing, fine crushing, pellet making and packaging(optional).

1.Raw and auxiliary materials are first charged into silos and tanks where they are made ready for further processing. They are then processed by primary crusher. Crushed materials are further separated by means of a sieve, and then stored in the assorting tanks according to the kind of raw materials.

2.The raw materials are then mixed by means of a feed mixer. In this process, fatty ingredients are added to the materials in order to raise the nutritional value of the feed. The feed obtained from the mixer is blended with molasses.

3.Assorted animal feed that is crushed into fine particles is further formed into pellets by a cattle feed pellet mill.

What if you can’t produce cattle feed pellets or don’t want to buy pellets?

1. Reserve roughage

Beef cattle enter the winter, and the breeding method should be gradually changed from grazing to house feeding. At this time, coarse fodder storage is required. Forage, corn, rice straw and silage, yellow storage, micro-storage and ammoniation can be combined to produce coarse fodder.

Prepare concentrate feed

While storing the roughage, the concentrate must be stored, including energy feed and protein feed. Energy feed is mainly corn, and protein feed can replace soybean meal with relatively low-priced rapeseed cake and cotton meal. In addition, some feed additives, such as licking bricks, must be reserved to supplement the lack of feed nutrients, improve the palatability and feed utilization rate of feed, enhance disease resistance of beef cattle, promote normal development and accelerate growth.

Control feed acidity

The pH value of fermented feed such as silage and yellow silage is generally around 5.0. Acetic acid and lactic acid are also produced during the fermentation process, which will make the acidity of the silage too high. Silage with high acidity not only reduces the palatability, but is also corrosive and irritating to the teeth and gastrointestinal tract of livestock, which is not good for eating. Adding a little urea in an appropriate amount can solve the problem of high acidity in the silage and increase the protein content.

The acidity of distiller’s grains and pomace fermentation products is also relatively high. If these feeds are used to fatten beef cattle for a long time, it will have an impact on the physical fitness of the cattle. Cattle will only show bad symptoms such as scorching and tight skin, and the fattening effect is not ideal. At the same time, it has a great impact on beef quality. In this case, a certain amount of baking soda can be added to the concentrate.

Fill up the column in time

In winter, due to the restriction of forage and feed, the calves born in that year need to be processed. At this time, both in terms of price and quality, it is more appropriate to buy calves in the fattening farm.

Pay attention to ventilation

Beef cattle must pay attention to the ventilation of the barn during the fattening process. The 0-4 level of beef cattle does not affect the growth and development rate, but at present many cattle farms pay too much attention to the insulation of the cattle house, which makes the cattle house appear high humidity. When the humidity exceeds 70%, the growth and development speed of the cattle will decrease. Ventilation facilities need to be taken into consideration when housing.

In addition, ensure that the cattle have sufficient light. Illumination can be achieved through the construction of the cowshed, and the cows can be taken out of the cowshed for natural light in sunny weather. In addition, in winter, cattle enter full-feed feeding, and the density of the cattle herd increases, and the risk of disease transmission will increase. Ventilation can reduce the incidence of cattle disease to a certain extent.
