On today's episode, John Ratzenberger sits down with Kemin's Jerilyn Hergenreder to discuss how the advantages of pelleting swine and poultry feeds are well documented. However, the costs associated with making highly digestible, durable and low-dust pellets are a big challenge for feed mill operators worldwide. The increased demand for electricity, the cost of pellet mill maintenance, and the reduced throughput are all factors which increase the cost of pelleting feed. So, what can feed mill managers do to reduce the cost of pelleting or at least increase throughout? Join us for this week's episode of Nutra Blend's Animal Agriculture podcast!
