salt briquette plant to manufacture animal lick salt – the solution
Set up a salt briquette plant with hydraulic briquetting machine to produce animal lick salt is really a good profit. The livestock has a big requirement on this as when they are fed by the human in the farm or something, they can not get enough salt and some other minerals which will cause problems on them.
These briquettes, which are produced with the shape of cubic or cylinder, as they help to improve the health and increase the growing speed for the livestock, they are kindly called by the farmers with the name of “chocolate” for sheep and cattle.
The quantity demanded of livestock
Three sheep need to take one 5 kg salt briquette per year;
One cattle need to take 3 pieces of 5 kg salt briquette per year.
The livestock will be very interested in these salt briquettes and will lick them time after time, it is a consideration that they get too much salt than their normal requirement, it won’t cause any problem if they have enough water to take, these overeating elements will be easily brought away by the urine.
The content of the briquette
The salt lick briquette always contains microelements like calcium, phosphorus, iodine, copper, zinc manganese, iron, selenium, etc.
It is also considered to add other additives like molasses, vegetable fat, etc to increase the absorption. Find your own way on these elements will help you enlarge your briquettes line and find the better market.
Here we are listing the functions of these microelements may it help you to improve your working on the salt briquette making.
|Element||Function||Lack of symptoms|
|Zinc (Zn)||Enzymatic function, promote body metabolism||Stiff joints, swollen limbs, incomplete parakeratosis, calf mouth and nose inflammation, low semen volume and poor quality|
|Manganese (Mn)||Mid-enzyme function activator||Newborn animals are unregulated, stunted, skeletal malformations, poor breast development, low pregnancy rates, miscarriage, more newborn rate for bulls|
|Copper (Cu)||Hemoglobin formation, enzyme function and pigmentation||Poor anemia, bone metabolism disorders, hair bleaching, dystocia, difficulty in placental recovery, low estrus rate|
|Iron (Fe)||Protein and enzyme function||Anemia, easy lack for the newborn livestock|
|Iodine (I)||Thyroid function||Goiter, low reproductive rate, low milk production, miscarriage, stillbirth|
|Cesium (Se)||Synergistic Vitamin Antioxidant Function||Slow development, muscle albinism, metritis, mastitis, fetal membrane not easy to shedding|
|Cobalt（Co）||Vitamin B1 components and energy absorption||Slow growth, anemia, animal wool loss, tearing, decreased immunity, lack of appetite|
|Vitamin E||Improve immunity, energy absorption||Muscle degeneration, anemia, reproductive dysfunction|
|Vitamin H||Maintain normal growth and development, prevent livestock lameness disease||Dermatitis, atrophic glossitis, hyperesthesia, muscle pain, fatigue, anorexia and mild anemia|
The animal lick salt briquette plant
The plant is very simple and easy to operate with several single accessories machines – mixer and conveyor. Mix the material first and after that using briquette machine to produce the briquette.
An animal lick salt briquette plant in Kenya
Kenya is a country where feed lots of livestock. Almost 70% of the people make living with agriculture and the related lines. Animal husbandry is one of them and grows rapidly.
This is a small line we set up for one of our customer in Kenya. A simple line with normal structure. Materials follow the way of mixing and briquetting, high quality salt briquette then produced. Change the mould to different shapes to meet the market’s requirement.
Benefit of using MaxTon’s hydraulic briquetting machine produce animal lick salt briquette
