Step-by-Step Guide to the Production of Catfish Feed Pellets

  • Choosing Suitable Raw Material

The raw material is selected based on your needs and its availability. Corn grain, peanut cake, wheat bran, fish derivatives, and many other available materials are used by keeping in mind the energy needs of catfish.

  • Crushing Materials into a Suitable Size

Once the raw material is selected, it is properly crushed into smaller sized particles to make pellets that are dense and solid. For crushing hammer mills are used. If the mill does not work properly and large-sized particles are produced, the end product of the procedure will not be of good quality.

  • Mixing Ingredients Properly

In this step, a mixer is used to mix all of the ingredients properly. A calculated amount of fats, carbohydrates, proteins, minerals, and water is added and allowed to get mixed in the mixer. It produces a well-mixed mash of all ingredients.

  • Forming Pellets with Catfish Feed Pellet Machine

The mixture that was produced in the above step will now be passed through the extruder of the catfish feed pellet making machine. Die and blades of the machine must be properly functioning if you want to get pellets of your desired length and diameter. After passing through the pellet mill machine, pellets of your required size are obtained.

  • Removing Water from Pellets

Pellets are dried with the help of a dryer to remove excess water from it. As a high amount of water can harm its quality, pellets are heated at an optimum temperature. During this step, the temperature should not exceed 60°C as a higher temperature than this can harm the structure of vitamins used in pellets.

  • Packing and Selling Pellets

In the end, catfish feed pellets are packed into suitable containers or packets to protect them from the harsh environment. Once these pellets are packed, you can either store them for use at your own catfish farm or sell the pellets in the market at a good price.
