Our Laboratory

Today, animal feed manufacturing is very competitive, although not all feeds are suitable for farm animal consumption due to inconsistent feed quality. Quality control and assurance have to be there for a farm owner to confidently purchase the animal feed from a supplier with the trust that he is going to feed the best for his farm animals.

The establishment of a feed mill laboratory can ensure every input and output from the process is tested for feed quality and assuring the quality of final feed. The best quality control system involves personnel being properly trained to ensure a high level of organisation, documentation and policing of various procedures and processes necessary to guarantee the basic quality of feed ingredients and feed and best technology and some automation to ensure accuracy in the feed products. Every quality control program should include periodic laboratory analysis of ingredients and feed.

Laboratory analysis is essential to predict the nutritive values of fed ingredients and feed, to avoid contaminants and to detecting adulterants. To achieve optimal animal performance, well balanced diets that satisfy nutrient requirements of the animal is mandatory and for producing these diets accurate formulation is essential. The most accurate formulations result when laboratory analysis of ingredients is available. Success of a quality control program hinges on collection of representative samples for laboratory analysis. Great care is taken to ensure samples are representative of material so that lab results reflect the nutrient content of the ingredient or feed being sampled.

Grain Processing

Grain processing includes grinding, pressing and heating to improve the digestibility of nutrients found within grain and enhancing feed efficiency. Grains are also processed for the purpose of improving palatability, to improve handling characteristics, to reduce the presence of toxic substances, and to preserve them better. They are also grounded, cracked, rolled and crimped to increase the amount of surface area available for the rumen microbes to attach.

Mechanical processing as done in our factories increases starch digestibility in both the rumen and in the intestine. Gelatinization destroys the crystalline nature of a starch granule making the surface of the starch more available to digestive solvents and enzymes as well as to the rumen microbes. It speeds up and increases the overall digestive process to convert starch into energy and microbial protein.

Sodium hydroxide, dry heat, pelleting, high moisture ensiling, steam-flaking, steam-rolling, and extrusion all gelatinize starch to various degrees. Plant proteins are heated at various temperatures, time intervals, and moisture levels to decrease the solubility of the protein and to block sites for enzymatic digestion by causing linkages to form between peptides and carbohydrates. Cereal grains and oilseeds are processed to produce a number of different types of feed products for your farm animals. Original plant products and manufacturing processes vary and routine nutrient analysis for all our feed products is done at our laboratory.

Feed Mixing

Feed mixing refers to the process of converting raw material intake to finished feed pellets and this includes many steps. It starts with dosing/ weighing, followed by grinding, mixing, conditioning, expansion and pelleting. When the pellet has left the pelletiser, it will be transported to the cooler, sifter and coater. Prior to the mixing process, the feed ingredients have been weighed and grinded and the vitamins and minerals have been added to the feed compound. The next step is then for all the ingredients to be mixed together.

Basically, mixing technology also refers to homogenising, means to transport the individual particles to an exact position in relation to other particles and thereby avoid segregation. It is very important to have all the ingredient mixed together properly to achieve a good feed pellet quality. Optimum mixing of the feed ingredients will ensure uniform distribution of nutrients, vitamins and minerals, which will result in a homogeneous nutrient content in each feed pellet. Further, it will ensure optimum growth of the animals. A good mixer has many capabilities and we ensure all our mixers in the production line are super-machines working for perfection quality mixing.

Especially, speed and quality are two qualities customers prioritise. A good mixer should provide both fast and efficient mixing. Furthermore, it should be easy to clean and maintain. Mixing is of enormous impotency and it is very important, it mixes all particle sizes equally precise. It is important to know what the feed formulation is and that all the ingredients remain intact during the process.


High quality pellets are capable to withstand repeated handling as can occur during bagging, transportation, storage, and moving in feed lines without excessive breakage or generation of fine particles. Feed pelleting can be defined as conversion of finely ground mash feed into dense, free flowing pellets or capsules, in a process that involves steam injection (moisture and heat) and mechanical pressure. There are several advantages for feeding pelleted dairy feed rather than mash form. The main advantage is the improved feed intake, weight gain and feed conversion. Farm animals fed pelleted diets spend less time and need lower maintenance energy requirements during eating and digestion in comparison to those fed mash feed. The other benefits of feeding pelleted diets include increase feed density, decrease feed dustiness, wastage, better mechanical handling of feed on the feed lines, and destruction of feed-borne pathogens. In order to achieve these multi-benefits, the pellet durability should be of a standard quality.

Several factors have an effect on the quality of the pellets. Some feed ingredients have a good impact on pellet quality, while others could adversely affect the quality. Dietary inclusion of wheat grain or wheat by-products (wheat midds, wheat gluten) can increase pellet durability, because of the high protein (gluten) and hemi-cellulose content of wheat in comparison to corn or corn co-products. Similarly, inclusion of oat as a partial substitute of corn can increase pellet quality.


The main objective of Cooling processin the pellet formationis to withdraw heat and moisture from dense mass to forms shaped mass. Theoretically, the amount of heat and moisture removal should be same as amount added during steam conditioning process. The output is pellet feed with specified level of moisture, temperature and pellet durability index (PDI).Pellets are cooled by passing ambient air through a bed of hot pellets. Though the primary function of coolers in a feed mill is to cool the pellet, it should also remove excess moisture from feed that was added through steam during conditioning process.There are two types of coolers used in cooling: Horizontal cooler and Counter-flow cooler. Coolers are directly influenced by climatic conditions because air present in environment is used as a medium of heat transfer. Relative Humidity (RH) plays a vital role in evaporative cooling.

Vitamin Preparation

Vitamins are essential for the vital growth and development of animals. We have been producing high quality vitamins that are pure, stable and reliable. A sufficiently high supply of vitamin A results in increased resistance to infectious diseases, as it keeps the skin and mucous membranes healthy and is thus an effective barrier against bacteria, viruses and parasites. Vitamin E plays numerous roles in the body. It supports the efficiency of the animal’s immune system in fighting infectious agents and reduces sensitivity to stress.

High-quality vitamin B2 (riboflavin) is crucial for the vital growth and development of animals. Owing to its role in the metabolism of proteins, carbohydrates, and fats, pantothenic acid is essential for all major species of livestock and companion animals. Choline, which is included in vitamin-like substances, is absolutely necessary for the formation of vital bodily substances, for example creatine and adrenaline, and in fat conversion and other metabolic reactions. Choline is in equilibrium with other vitamins. Its synthesis is promoted by vitamin B12. We understand every vitamin has its purpose not to ignore. Our vitamin supplies are well tested for all essential nutrients and can be trusted to provide a rich meal to your farm animals.
