Growing Technological Advancements for Feed Mills
The feed industry has witnessed great changes in the past few years. The feed mills have been decentralized into smaller mills, increased bulk deliveries, served better products & services and developed more interrelationships with poultry and livestock producers.
Therefore, to satisfy the growing demand, more regional and local mills are being built. Currently, owners and managers of feed manufacturer, in North America, need information for decision making about operating practices and efficiency. The global and North America feed mills are getting smarter with the use of NIR technology.
The technology allows analysis of incoming raw materials in actual time, permitting reformulation of the diets, on a minute-by-minute basis, to enable consistency of each batch. Moreover, the rapid in vitro digestion modeling systems will offer innovative ways to define the true nutritional value of raw materials, along with the final feed products leaving the feed mill.
In the future, there is a potential to apply artificial intelligence to investigate data and make instant adjustments based on system inputs. The technological advancements are likely to befall in the pelleting process. Further, by controlling more of the parameters involved in pelleting and cooling, there is an opportunity to reduce costs, improve feed quality and assure food safety.
