In the feed sector, it's common to talk about feed as balanced, compound, or concentrate. Many people use one of these terms to refer to any feed mill product. However, the final products are different and depend on nutrient content and the final processing steps. Moreover, compound feed processing gives you a complete nutritional feed with added value for the market.

Add fats to the mix to boost feed functionality and palatability

You need to mix, grind, and pelletize macro ingredients, premixes, molasses, fats, and micro-ingredients for compound feed processing. The most common macro ingredients are corn, soy, sorghum, oats, barley, baked goods, and animal protein byproducts. In the case of micro-ingredients, you can use premixes and/or individual additives such as amino acids, vitamins, minerals, and probiotics.

Vegetal and animal fats are also added to the process to improve feed quality and nutrients and increase palatability and digestibility.

 

Flexibility and animal nutrition expertise are fundamental to processing compound feed

The standardized processing of compound feed needs to be flexible to meet the different livestock physiological requirements and enhance their performance depending on their life stages. Besides, the market prices of feed commodities are fluctuant.

Thus, you need an expert in animal nutrition to vary the formulas with accessible and affordable ingredients whilst maintaining the nutrient content. Additionally, you need to be able to develop tailor-made cost-efficient formulas according to specific dietary needs or medicated formulas.

Pre-clean the bulk ingredients before starting compound feed processing

When you receive your macro ingredients in bulk, you need to unload them from the truck and pass them through a pre-cleaner to remove impurities before storing them in silos, square loadout bins, or multi-bin clusters. The storage container you choose depends on the volume, form, and type of the ingredient. It is essential to store the ingredients recommended by the storage container manufacturer.

Remember to do regular control of your stock of macro ingredients. Heat, humidity, and external factors, such as animals, can damage the raw materials, whether whole grain, flour, or cake.
