Alfalfa pellet introduction

Alfalfa is a perennial leguminous forage grass with strong resistance and a wide range of adaptations, which can grow in many types of climate and soil conditions. Alfalfa grass is the most popular forage grass for all kinds of livestock, with high forage value, high yield, good taste, rich in nutrients and other advantages. 

Alfalfa stems and leaves are rich in crude protein, quality fiber, minerals, multivitamins and carotenoids. A lot of experiments at home and abroad have proved that alfalfa grass is a good feed for cattle, sheep, pigs, poultry, rabbits, horses, camels and other animals.

For ease of transportation, storage, and to reduce feed processing costs and waste during feeding, alfalfa grass can be dried and processed into alfalfa grass pellets through a pelletizing process. Fresh alfalfa grass is made into pellet feeds that physically disrupt the plant cell walls and cellulose structure, lignin structure, making the plant’s dense cellulose lax. 

The juice of fresh alfalfa is absorbed in the pelletizing process, which is rich in biologically active substances, which are beneficial for the survival and reproduction of microorganisms, thus enhancing the decomposition of microorganisms, as well as the use of feed additives, especially non-protein substances, urea phosphate, ammonium hydrogen phosphate and trace elements.

Alfalfa are easily mixed and homogeneous, so that animals can eat a balanced diet of different active ingredients. Can effectively improve the suitability of coarse feed, reduce the waste of feed, increase the feeding effect of the unit feed.


How to make alfalfa pellet?

When you want to pelletize, the first step is to dry the alfalfa until the moisture is around 15%. The wetter of the material,  it will affect the final quality of the alfalfa pellets. You can make use of the rotary dryer so that you can get the ideal moisture quickly. Or you can dry it naturally if you get enough sunshine.

The second step you have to do is to crush the alfalfa. Alfalfa in its original form is not suitable for direct processing with an alfalfa pellet machine. When you grind it down to a small powder with the crusher, and the material size is below 5mm, the granulation rate and the alfalfa pellets quality are much better.

The final step you have to get your alfalfa pellet mill or alfalfa pellet production line ready. A small pellet machine will be enough if it’s just for your own use at home. In the case of pellet plants, large machines and related equipment can be taken.

Size below 5mm alfalfa enters the alfalfa pellet machine by conveyor and is pressed into 4-8mm cylindrical pellets by the resistance between the pellet mill die and the rollers ,and finally conveyed to the silo by conveyor.
