Main Machines for Feed Production
Intensive poultry farming and mechanization have led to widespread use of various types of chicken feed machines that can be used for different purposes, such as:
Grinding machines, grinding chicken feed ingredients into powder/mud, not only make poultry easier to eat faster, but also digest faster, increasing egg production (egg chicken or broiler).Mixing machines are used to mix uniformly and evenly the different ingredients of poultry feed, such as cornmeal, wheat bran, fishmeal, bone meal, soy meal and all other ingredients and minerals that may be included. A poultry meal that mixes all ingredients evenly and evenly.Feed pellet machines are used to convert powdered feed into particles, further improving feed efficiency in poultry breeding and increasing the production of eggs or meat while reducing costs.
Advantages of Feed Pellet Machine Unit (Single Machine) It has a low production cost: The machine doesn’t need too many people to operate it. In fact, it only takes one or two people to operate it. This significantly reduces labour costs, which greatly affect production costs. Low production costs lead to increased profit margins.Reduced installation cost: The machine is simple enough to be purchased and installed. You only need a few minutes to assemble different parts. This reduces the amount of cash required to assemble qualified personnel for assembly. All you need is a qualified person and another person to help him.It's a low investment machine: Because of its small size, the grain-controller needs a small area. This reduces the cost of renting a large area to install it and the time it takes to install it.Has a wide application: The machine is capable of producing particles of different sizes for different poultry and livestock. This means you can feed all animals with one machine at the same time. This makes it easier for farmers to raise different types of animals on farms.
Poultry Feed Production In Kenya
To reduce feed costs, this feed cost accounts for about 70% of the total cost of poultry production. Most small poultry companies now rely on this local feed. Raw materials are sourced locally. The feed is mainly composed of corn, sorghum, peanut cake, soy flour, fishmeal and bone meal.
In Kenya, emphasis is currently placed on local feed companies that encourage the use of local raw materials for poultry feed. For these reasons, the number of such enterprises is increasing.
Indigenous feed companies are considered to be an honest practice because their raw materials are readily available and can be used by poultry farmers. Governments and individuals have adopted a number of strategies, such as price policies, input subsidies, production credits and liberalization to increase the production of these poultry feed enterprises, but have performed poorly in meeting the demand of the poultry industry. Interestingly, demand for corporate products is increasing every day.
