Abstract

This bulletin supersedes TDRI report G67 The small-scale manufacture of compound animal feed, which was first published in 1971. lt retains a similar format to G67, but the text has been extensively revised and expanded in the light of numerous enquiries dealt with by ODNRI on all aspects of feed production in the intervening years. lt is hoped that it will act as a technical and investment guide for those interested in initiating the production of compound animal feeds, as well as acting as a useful reference report for those already actively operating in this field. Chapter 1 describes the economic background to the industry; theoretical aspects of animal nutrition are dealt with in Chapter 2; these are related to the properties of the various raw materials used in feed production in Chapter 3. Chapter 4 describes the manufacturing process and examines the physical requirements for setting up plants at various scales of output, and Chapter 5 develops cost and return models for the plants described.
