There is a trend towards using home-grown cereals for pig feed production. It's an economic option and also allows the production of individual rations of a known quality. It can also reduce transport costs and enable farmers to use by-products from the food industry, which can help to reduce costs, further. These are significant advantages - and perhaps more so given the current financial climate in pig production. As a company, we are especially interested in delivering the right system adapted to suit individual operational requirements. If, for example, a HYDROMIX feeding system is used, only a feed mill is needed as the mixing process will be carried out in the tank of the liquid feeding system. The milling and mixing system can, of course, also be controlled by the Big Dutchman MC 99 NT feeding computer - so, in some cases, the outlay may be far less than first estimated.
Big Dutchman supply hammer mills with driving powers of between 11 and 22 kW and capacities of 2000 - 4000 kg/hr. Every mill is equipped with a stone catcher, in the form of a riddle sifter, along with a metal detector and collector. A screen is used for the even maceration of cereals and other grains; their structure, however, depends on the mesh size (usually between 2.5 - 4.5 mm). The raw materials and finished meal are transported by a chain elevator or a speed-controlled conveyor screw auger. A frequency converter (optional) allows the grinding speed to be continuously adjusted.
Under certain conditions, for example with rearing and finishing pigs, it could make more sense to use two, small mill units instead of one large mill. This enables the production of different rations and recipes with different grain and/or grist sizes.
Big Dutchman's dry mixer is a multi-purpose horizontal machine. Different feed components such as cereals, dry minerals, vitamins and fats can be thoroughly mixed and it can deal with varying capacities. The dry mixer is highly accurate, making it especially suitable for the production of premixes. The standard version has a capacity of 2000 litres and three weigh bars ensure accurate weight calculation. The mixer is emptied over an opening at the base. The aperture can be opened or closed automatically or manually by a sliding valve.
All projects are individual and a great deal of information has to be taken into consideration when planning a system. For example, the number of animals, whether a dry or liquid feeding system is to be used and the number of feed ingredients and minerals, must be considered carefully. To develop the best concept for each customer, BD operates an intensive preparation and planning routine, often guided by an advisory service.
Apart from the milling and mixing systems described in this article, Big Dutchman also offers a variety of products which compliment and often complete an installation. The product range includes silos, mineral containers, conveyor spirals (augers), bucket and chain elevators, tube and trough screw augers.
