Benefits of Pelletizing
There are several benefits to pelletizing
commodities. Pelletizing a product allows it to become more
efficient and flexible. There isn’t the waste associated
with handling a “loose” product. For example,
with hay, there is a lot of waste from the haystack to the
feeder. Hay in a pellet form, is denser and that waste with
the “loose” product does not exist. In dust free
environments pelletized products are preferred due to the
cleanliness of condensed products versus “loose”
Pellets are also utilized more efficiently
by animals. Once the pellet enters the animals system, they
can immediately begin utilizing the feed. They do not burn
the energy in breaking feed down before it can be fully beneficial
to their system.
Commodities, like rice bran are more efficient
and clean in a pellet form. Pelletizing allows commodities
to be added as ingredients without the waste and mess.
