Infographic: A look at the global feed production 2012
 
In 2012 the global feed indsutry comprised of 26,240 feed mills, according to the latest data published by ALLTECH as part of their annual feed survey. The world's total feed production was estimated at 954.4 million tonnes. To help visualize the data, and provide an overview of global feed production, we have created the following infogrpahic.

Keith C. Behnke Kansas State University Pelleting has been, and continues to be, a popular processing technique in feed manufacturing. In basic terms, pelleting converts a finely ground blend of ingredients into dense, free flowing agglomerates (pellets). There are many reasons used to justify the process, but it may be appropriate to list just a few: • improved animal performance, • decrea.. Full Story »
 
 
Pellet Quality For purposes of this paper, pellet quality will be equated to the ability of pellets to withstand repeated handling without excessive breakage or fines generation. There are many factors that affect pellet quality, but the following will be discussed in some detail: · formulation · ingredient particle size · mash conditioning · feed rate · die speed · die specifications (design) · other factors Formulation There are feeds..

Particle Size Optimum particle size for best pelleting results has been a matter of controversy for almost as long as feeds have been pelleted. Young (1960) found no significant differences in pellet durability when he experimented with feed rations containing 40, 60, and 70 percent ground corn or grain sorghum when the grain portions were ground coarse, medium, and fine. Martin (1984) compared pelleting efficiencies and durabilities using a hammermill and a roller mill to grind the corn portion (59.5%) of a pelleted fe.. Full Story »
 
 
Doug Decksheimer Comco Systems Inc. Introduction And Background In most cases, post-heat liquid application treatment has been limited to fat additions of 1-10 percent. Equipment to apply fat is present in many mills and in some cases can be adapted to apply other liquid ingredients. In the past five years, several hundred pellet lines globally have been retrofitted to dispense enzymes. This increasing trend in As.. Full Story »
