The higher temperature in summer will affect the egg production of laying hens. To avoid egg production next season, it is necessary to ensure that the breeding management is in place so that the laying hens can obtain sufficient nutrition and increase feed intake. Now, Richi Machinery Provide the adjustment method of summer laying hen feed formula to everyone:

1. Properly increase the content of protein feed. The weather is hot and the feed intake of chickens is reduced. Only by increasing the protein level in the feed as appropriate and ensuring the balance of amino acids can the protein requirements of laying hens be met. Therefore, the protein content in the feed for laying hens in summer should be higher than usual, generally requiring more than 18%. The way to increase protein is to increase the soybean meal, cottonseed cake and other cake meal feeds in the compound feed, and at the same time reduce the consumption of animal protein feeds such as fish meal.

2. Appropriate use of feed additives. The additives mentioned here are mainly substances that relieve heat stress and increase appetite. In order to avoid high temperature and other factors causing the laying hens stress response and egg laying performance to decline, it is necessary to add some anti-stress additives to the feed or drinking water. For example, adding 0.1%-0.4% of vitamin C and 0.2%-0.3% of ammonium chloride in drinking water can significantly relieve heat stress. When the summer temperature is high, adding a certain amount of seasoning feed to the feed can greatly improve the feed intake. Therefore, in order to enhance the appetite of laying hens, on the premise of ensuring the quality of feed, choose safe and effective flavoring agents such as chrysanthrin, para-aminobenzoic acid, sodium glutamate to increase feed intake.

3. Reasonable use of mineral feed. Appropriately increasing the phosphorus content in the diet during the hot season can play a role in alleviating heat stress. At the same time, the calcium content in the laying hen diet can be increased to 3.8%-4%, maintaining a 4:1 calcium phosphorus ratio. Too much calcium content in the compound feed will affect palatability. In order to increase the calcium intake, it will not affect the palatability of the laying hen feed. In addition to increasing the calcium content in the feed, it can also be added separately to allow the chicken to eat freely to meet Its physiological needs.

4. The temperature is lower in the morning and evening in summer. At this time, the feed intake of the laying hens is relatively large, and they can be fed once in the morning and before the lights are turned off at night to ensure that the laying hens eat enough feed.

For small-scale breeding plants, it is more arbitrary to adjust the feed formula, which seems more convenient; but for feed factories, it is more convenient to adjust the formula. why? Because many laying hen feed pellet production lines adopt automatic ingredients, only the computer needs to adjust the proportion of the formula to adjust the formula. Let's introduce the hot selling production line of laying hen feed:

1.RM Receiving & Precleaning System:

The usage of cleaning system is removing the raw materials’impurities, such as rope, clod, corn cob etc. non-magnetic impurities and iron nail magnetic impurities. It can ensure the quality of products and the safety of the subsequent processing equipment. The RM receiving & pre-cleaning system is divided into granule pellets feeding cleaning and mash feed feeding cleaning.

Cleaning Equipment: Drum Cleaner for Granule Pellets Cleaning, Powder Cleaner for powder material cleaning.

2.Grinding System:

The usage of grinding system is increasing the specific surface area of feed which is good for animal digestion and absorption and improving the processing performance of raw materials. This feed mill plant adopts 2 set of hammer mills. There are pre-grinding bins on the top of poultry feed hammer mill. The impurities in the raw materials will be removed by tubular magnet device before feeding into the pre-grinding bins, to ensure that the hammer mill can operate safely. The cleaned raw materials will feed into the electric chicken feed corn hammer mill chamber for grinding. Then the crushed materials will be transported to the bucket elevator through the screw conveyor, and then feeding into the dosing bins via the rotary distributor. When transporting, one set of auxiliary suction system will be needed. It not only saves energy, but also prevents dust spillage, lowers material temperature and improves crushing efficiency.

Crushing Equipment: Hammer Mill SFSP Series.

3.Batching & Mixing System:

This dosing system is designed according to different feed formula, is accurate weighing process of different raw materials by using specific device. The mixing system is mixing various materials under the action of external force, after various materials are metered. It is an operation that makes the raw materials distribute evenly.

This process use batching scales,bins and the manual adding system with checking scale. After the dosing and weighing process are finished, the raw materials enter the mixer for mixing, and finally the raw materials are output by chain conveyor and bucket elevator.

Weighing Equipment: Batching Scale,Poultry Feed Mixing Machine.

4.Pelleting System:

The purpose of pelleting system is to make finely divided, dust-prone, poorly palatable and difficult-to-ship feeds into granule pellets by the action of heat, moisture and pressure in the pelleting process. It can improve the palatability of the feed, reduce the feed-meat ratio, reduce feed waste and reduce environmental pollution.

This process adopt poultry pellet making machine with conditioner. There are pre-pelleting bins on the top of the poultry feeding pellet mill machine. After pelleting, the final layer hen feed pellets enter the cooler, crumbler in order, then conveyed by bucket elevetor to the rotary screener for sifting, and finally enter to the bagging bins for bagging. Others will return to pellet mill machine or crumbler machine for re-process.

Hen Feed Pellet Mill: SZLH Series.

Pellet Cooler: SKLN Series.

5.Bagging System:

The finish product bagging system can divide into bulk bagging and bag bagging two types. According to the weighing in the packaging operation, the automation degree of the filling and packaging, it can be divided into three types: manual bagging, semi-automatic bagging and fully automatic bagging. The selection of the bagging type can be determined according to the customers’requirements, the size of the feed mill plant and the size of the investment.

6.Oil Adding System&Dust Removal System:

The dust removal system: it is used in the bagging system which can improving the working environment for workers.Oil adding system: it is usually used in mixing system, it can improve the feed palatability.
