A nice article which talks about the advantage of double paddle, microbial load reduction due t pasterization and thus FCR improvement.
It has been mentioned that moiture addition is critical and most pellet mills can handle max 18% moisture in preconditioned mash. I could not reach this 18% moisture. Is there any way to improve this?

Interesting article about Better Pellets with preconditioning. You can try using emulsifier. Add it with water then spray in mixer. Although 18% is really high, you might need to add more emulsifier in ratio with water.

28/07/2011 | You mentioned in the article that the complete recipe is ground at average 600 microns.
What percentage of recipe passing through 600 microns is usually recommended. I mean, it is not necessary to get the 100 percent at 600 microns. So what is the appropiated wire that we coul set into the hammer mill? May be 2mm diameter? 3 mm? Im talking of a recipe for bovins, cows...

Good article about Pellets. A good conditioniing will increase the digestability of feed by animal. so injection of steam and points of steam are also be monitered. the Tome Temperature( Time Temperature & Moisture) the retention time at conditioner , and steam quality, effeciency to mix it well and penitration of moisture. so now a days conditoning of pellets are most help ful for good growth and also for long water stability.
