Pelleting farm animal feed reduces feed wastage and make all the feed ingredients consumed as compounded but this may be expensive in some parts of Africa or even cause increase in cost of production.

In most parts of Africa, there is serious competition between human being and farm animals for energy and protein source feed ingredients this therefore calls for alternative feed ingredients like Jatropha. Delonix regis and Locust beans but the problems of anti nutrients makes most of these alternatives ingredients useless and this makes the cost of poultry meat very expensive

I do concede your apprehension that the prevailing inflated cost of raw materials while computing ration to poultry does not permit due room to accomodate additional cost through pelletisation.
My recommendation is to go in incorporating unconventional items containing some toxic factors judicially as a measure on controlling cost and get those feed to undergo pelletisation under exposure to steam to enhance digestibility apart from reducing the I'll effect of antinutritional factors inherited by some ingredients being used at your end. The aftermath of these findings would certainly arrive to your satisfactory level.

Pelleting does increase the cost of production as compared to mash but u look into efficiency of pellet, it’s much more better in terms of FCR, feed wastage, energy utilised by birds for prehenson of feed
With one pick of pellet complete feed goes into bird. More pellet is geletenised and cooked food thus BV of pellet is much better than mash

Sushil Chandra Pellet can be better than mash because that can verify the eating pattern, I think.

Sushil Chandra , in a situation, were cane molasses is used in the feed formulation, is it right to use as well bentonite@1% and gelatin?

In my idea, pelleting has four benefits. In brief:
1. Improvement of bioavailability
2. Change in pick of feed and Improvment of FCR, BWG, FI.
3. Energy saving
4. Reducing pathogenic factors

Dear Mr Mohsin
I fully endorse your observation about pelleted performance over mash.

We feed mash on our farm and it’s better than pallets because it’s the same every time pallets sometimes fall apart than u get dusty feed broilers don’t like eating dusty feed

You can use some new pellet binders mile PMC (poly methyl carbamide) with very low inclusion rate 1.33 kg/ton.

Mr Jonathan
Adding cane molasses in poultry feed has limited usage ie up to 1 to 2 % only in layer feed and not recommended in broiler feed
Therefore use of bentonite @1% can be used as Pellet binder and it is also an toxin binder
Follow my request and implement and revert please

Mr Dan Hofer
U being poultry farmer may not be producing pelleted feed ur self
Lot of factors are involved to have better quality quality pellets
1- proper preconditioning time around 2 minutes which will ensure proper gelatinisation
2-Iclusion of pellet binder
3- proper cooling of pellets
4 proper storage of pellets in silo bins or bags
5- Avoid any atmospheric moisture during storage as pellets are hygroscopic in nature
As the pellet passes thru so many channels from cooling to transport to loading to unloading to finally feeding to birds , it has to strong enough to sustain so that it doesn’t break into powder
Pl note that pellets are always better than mash
Regards
