The most common kind of on-farm grinding equipment is a grinder-mixer, which as its name indicates both grinds and mixes feed in the same machine. Farmer Ed Mosbach uses a grinder mixer on his farm to mill feed for his cattle and poultry. His process is to grind the corn in the grinder and then add his protein (such as soybean meal), minerals and small grains into the grinder via a side shoot. Grinder-mixers are vertical machines where ingredients go in the top and mixed feed is pushed out the bottom. This can cause difficulties with mixing feed thoroughly as heavier items (corn) will be pulled to the bottom by gravity and lighter items (soybean meal, minerals, etc.) will stay at the top. Ed achieves a more even feed distribution of grain in his feed by adding the mix into the side shoot gradually over the course of the grinding time. He also runs the grinder-mixer at half throttle to get a better, more consistent grind than full throttle and he doesn’t fill the grinder all the way full. Keeping his batches under two tons leaves some space for the grain to churn and mix more evenly.
Uses/benefits of Corn Grinder For Cattle Feed:
The Cattle feed grinder machine is used in food, crop dry and straw smashing processing can also be used for potato beating, the livestock feed grinder can grind all kinds of materials of pellet feed, such as corn, sorghum, grain, legumes, corn cob,dry wheat straw,rice husk,wheat brans,small tree branches,and others.
Features of Corn Grinder For Cattle Feed:
Air Classifier Mill, also called Air Classifying Mill and Dynamic Classifier Mill, represents one of the most universal milling systems available. With its combination of an impact milling rotor and an integral dynamic classifier, each with independent variable speed drives, the MJW can process a variety of materials and produce a wide range of particle sizes. By simple adjustment of the classifier speed, the air classifier mill can make various cut points of 20 – 120 µm typically. Manufactured in both carbon steel and 304/316L stainless steel, the classifier mill is used in all industries from chemicals and minerals to food and pharmaceuticals.
For potentially explosive materials PSR11 (pressure shock resistant) mill design is available, alternatively the mill system can be designed for pressure venting or nitrogen inerting. A special pharmaceutical design is also available with fully enclosed motors and suitable for CIP.
The air classifier mill is made in a range of sizes from laboratory/pilot scale with 7.5kW mill drive motor to production mills up to 250kW. Airflows are higher than standard pin mills or turbine mills, which has the advantage of rapid heat dissipation and makes the DCM suitable for heat sensitive materials.
