An efficient feed production line is one that has been designed to handle the types and amounts of feed that need to be produced. Optimising the balance between batch size and batch frequency plays a pivotal role.
Two critical questions need to be addressed when designing the feed production line - “What is the optimum mixer size for the feed mill?” and “How many batches per hour should be produced?” It is important in every case to find a balance between batch size and batch cycle time.
