ABC Machinery - Feed Mill Manufacturer and Supplier

During the growing days, chickens require proper nutrition and that’s the reason there should be a proper chicken feed plans for them. Now talking about the chicken feed consumption, it differs in the egg-producing chickens and meat producing chickens. The feed should contain a properly balanced nutritional ratio that will prevent slow growth and leg problems in the chicken. The poultry feed production team needs to analyze the requirements of the chicken to prepare a proper feed for them.

Broiler Chicken Feed Manufacturing Process and machinery

Making a good chicken feed from scratch is never an easy task. Though a proper feed is prepared from 85-90 percent of cereal grains, it cannot be completely made of grains. The feed must include soybean meal, salt and concentrated vitamins and minerals as well. The different nutritional needs and the levels of growth have a direct effect on the chicken feed production. With the increase in demand of the poultry product consumption, chicken feed production too has become a very profitable business or project to invest in.

Broiler feed production

There are a lot of factors on which the broiler (meat chicken) feed depends. One of the most important one of it is selecting the breed. Whether you are doing it on a small-scale or large-scale. The feed consumption rate and growth rate of the chicken depends on: the breed, your management system and the weather conditions. The most flexible feed schedule is that of a broiler. You will see a steady reduction in the protein levels towards the various stages: from the chicken starters to growers and then the chicken finisher.

Have a look at the Nutritional requirements of a Growing Broiler diet:

Nutritional Specification For Broiler (Grower)
Crude Protein 13Mj/Kg
Metabolisable energy 20.5%
Digestible Lysine 1.1%
Total sulphur amino acids (digestible) 0.7%
Phosphorous (available) 0.4%
Calcium 0.9%
Sodium 0.2%
Chloride 0.2%

Requirement of any of the above nutrient is relative to the other nutrients there are few factors that need to be considered before expressing the need of a certain nutrient. Quantity of one nutrient depends on the quantity of the other. For example, the percentage of calcium, phosphorus and sodium are interdependent. 

  • Proteins

In the dietary requirements of chicken soyabean meal, canola meal and meat and bone meal constitute of the protein majorly. The daily crude protein intake is always kept least in the feed, for it provides an adequate amount of essential amino acids in the chicken diet.

  • Amino Acids

The growth rate of the chicken depends on the percentage of Amino acid in the chicken feed. An adequate amount of amino acid is required to ensure rapid growth of the chicken and for a successful, meat chicken feed program.

  • Minerals

The quantity of minerals in the feed not only depends on the requirement, but it majorly depends on the bioavailability of the mineral sources. For different sources the concentration of minerals differs. For example, there is a difference in the bioavailability of zinc in zinc sulphate and zinc oxide.

  • Vitamins

It is said that the vitamin requirements of chicken reduces with the growing age. Though there’s no concrete argument to prove it. Vegetable oils or animal fats are the optional ingredients to be included in the diet to provide additional energy.

Have a look at the ideal composition of a Typical Broiler Feed:

Composition of a Typical Broiler Feed %
Wheat 45.0
Sorghum 25.0
Soyabean Meal 12.0
Canola Meal 8.0
Meat & Bone Meal 7.0
Tallow 2.0
Lysine 0.3
Methionine 0.2
Vitamins & Trace Minerals 0.5
TOTAL 100

The composition of the chicken feed varies with the varied growing stages of the chicken. The feed producers usually have a 3 stage feeding program, depending on which the feed changes as the chicken grow. It basically has the: Starter feed, Grower feed and the Finisher feed. Some of them have also introduced a withdrawal feed just before the harvest. Compared to all the other feeds, the finisher feed has the lowest composition of protein and higher in energy.

Pelletized Broiler Feed Production (Making Feed Pellets)

Pelletized feed is the best feed choice of the chickens. And the primary reason to prefer pelletized feed (feed pellets) is, it ensure the adequate intake of nutrients for the chick. These days, peletted feeds are the most preferred feeds for the poultry animals. While in feed pellet production, all the ingredients are grounded and mixed together in a machine to form a specific feed requirement and desired combination of nutrients.

Advantages of Pelletized Chicken Feed

  • Nutritional Composition: It consists of the proper and required proportion of the nutrients and ensures that the chicken receives the desired nutrients in adequate amount.
  • Improves performance: Ensuring balanced diet of the chicken, it improves the bird performance and lessens the wastage of feed.
  • Feed Safety: As the process included high temperature, it ensures, no bacteria gets pass on to the chicken through the feed. The food is sterilized in the process.
Flat die type small feed pellet machine and ring die feed pellet mill are the two common types of poultry feed pellet making machine.

Corn Fed and Grain Fed Chicken

As the names indicate, grain fed must have grains included as one of the ingredients in the feed. But that is anyway included in the feed. For corn fed, corn is included as one of the ingredients in the feed. In most parts of the world, corn is a common ingredient in the chicken feed, Australia being an exception. In Australia, fewer areas have the suitable conditions to grow corn; hence the corn feeds are produced really less in Australia. Corn fed chickens tends to have a slight yellow skin color. Due to the less availability of corn, it is usually replaced by wheat and sorghum in the chicken feeds in Australia. Grains used in the chicken feeds largely depend on its local availability.
