2020-08-14

Is it posible to make pellets from grass? Yes, fresh grass can be directly processed into pellets. Using leguminous forage as grass pellets, the optimal water content is 14%-16%; gramineous forage is 13%-15%. The processing of grass pellets usually uses a grass pellet mill machine.

The definition of feed is not limited to wheat bran. In fact, as long as it is something that allows livestock to eat with relish, it can be called feed. Grass is one of the common feeds. Moreover, the growth of forage grass is strong, and it can be harvested all year round. It also allows the livestock to eat fresh feed.

Application method of grass:

Grass is used in livestock, poultry and fish breeding, and the existing technology is generally as follows:

1. As green fodder, fresh pastures are directly used to grow to a suitable height, which can be directly fed to livestock, poultry and fish.

2. Use a beater to mix the fresh grass with water to make straw slurry, and then pour it into the water to feed fingerlings or feeder fish, or mix the straw slurry with appropriate amount of concentrate and feed it directly to livestock and poultry.

3. Drying or dehydration is used, and the fresh pasture is air-dried (or dried) and used as hay.

4. For grass meal feed, use a grass powder crusher to pulverize hay into grass meal, mix it with other feed ingredients in a certain proportion, and then use a grass pelletizer to compress it into pellet feed.

Taking alfalfa as an example, the juice content of fresh alfalfa is about 70% to 80%. The juice is rich in trace elements, vitamins and free amino acids. The fresh alfalfa and crop stalks are mixed to make grass pellet feed. The liquid juice is fully utilized. On the other hand, it improves the palatability of crop straw, increases the density of straw feed, increases feed intake, and improves the weight gain performance of cattle and sheep.

Taking giant fungus as an example, the juice of giant fungus is rich in trace elements, vitamins and free amino acids. Fresh giant fungus and crop straw are mixed to make grass pellet feed. On the one hand, the juice of giant fungus is fully utilized. On the other hand, it improves the palatability of crop straw, increases the density of straw feed, increases feed intake, and improves the weight gain performance of cattle and sheep.
