It makes sense for medium-sized farms to build their own feed mill.
This is reported by AgroTimes.
The organization of own formulated feed production gives the farmer an opportunity to reduce own expenses for manufacture of feed almost on third.
Factories of even a small capacity (1-20 tons / hour) can completely cover the requirements for feed of one or several farms.
In addition, thanks to the computer control of the plants it is possible to control the formulations and individual components, that is, to ensure quality and monitor the cooking process.
According to experts, the price of feed can contain up to 30% of the cost of its transportation. Own feed mill usually pays off on average for three to five years.
