Pasture pellet feeders are specialized feed equipment used to squeeze pasture into pelleted feed, but freshly harvested greengrass is not suitable for immediate processing into pelleted feed. Many case studies have proved that the use of pellet feed pelleted by forage pellet mills has great benefits for livestock and poultry.


Pasture pellet feeders are suitable for processing pellet feeds with high fiber content because pellet mills use flat dies and press rolls as granulation parts. These two parts can generate enough force on the raw materials to make fibers. It is extruded into granules, and the hardness of the granules is large, which facilitates storage and transportation, and at the same time prevents rabbits and other livestock picky eaters.


The newly harvested green grass is not suitable for processing pellet feed through pasture feed pellets because the freshly harvested grass has a large moisture content. After processing into pellet feed, on the one hand, the feed pellets have large moisture content and are not conducive to storage. On the other hand, in the processing process, the moisture and fiber technology in the grass block the die holes in the flat die, or in the gaps in other components, and requires thorough cleaning after the processing is complete, wasting time and manpower, and severely damaging it. Equipment, causing economic losses.


If it is necessary to directly process fresh pellets into pellet feed, artificial drying can be used to produce dehydrated straw powder. On the one hand, the juice of pasture is fully utilized. On the other hand, the palatability of crop straw is improved, the density of straw feed is increased, the feed intake is increased, and the weight gain performance of cattle and sheep is improved.
