Step into the World of Raw Feeds

Raw Feeds Dairy Farms, Feed mills, Feedlots, Piggeries and Poultry food manufacturers

Raw Feeds is a group of highly energetic, uniquely selected and qualified individuals. From Negotiating, buying, selling and distributing of a variety of commodities in the agriculture market.

Hand Picked

One of our specialities is, we source and supply good products that are not being used and end up at landfills. Carbon footprint is becoming essential and not discarding waste. We want to add value and contribute to animal feed requirements. We believe consuming materials of left-over waste from food manufacturing companies, will keep the animal feed price down.

Feeding

With correct balanced levels of components, the best nutritional feed can be produced, i.e. the best food used for feed.

Customer Services

Raw Feeds strive to assist all Dairy Farms, Feedlots, Feed manufacturers and farmers with commodities at low prices and high value to keep costs down as the price of agricultural commodities comes at a high cost. This is not always possible; therefore, we research human consumption foods with high value at low prices.

Suppliers

Globally all Food / Beverage companies must sell off waste products – this needs to be removed and destroyed. This process is expensive and has become an issue. Therefore, we make use of these products in animal feed manufacturing.

Raw Materials

We supply all Commodities used for Animal Feed. From Maize bi-products, from Food mills, sweepings, screenings and food waste of high quality. High-quality sugar, starch, oils and protein are easily digestible for animals.

Dairy Farms

Wet /Dry spent grain (Barley) Is a good source of energy and protein for use in dairy cow feed. The spent grain helps produce and stimulate milk production. Spent grain can be fed in large amounts to dairy cows, up to 15kg per head daily.

Piggeries

The profitability of a piggery is very sensitive to the price of feeds used, the efficiency of the piggery's pig genotype to convert feed into meat and the price for market pigs at any time.

Feedlots

Cattle fattened in feedlots are fed small amounts of hay supplemented with grain, soy and other ingredients to increase the energy density of the diet.

Let us resolve how to dry

Raw Feeds Drying

Raw Feeds have invested in a Drying Facility – one of only 3 in South Africa

Our facility is situated in Alrode (East of Gauteng).

We are currently drying wet spent grain (Barley) initially used for brewing beer. Barley is used in the beer-making proses. The barley undergoes a boiling process, where the sugar and starch are used for the beer-making process. The "boiled barley", named spent grain, is then stored in tanks and loaded for use as animal feed. With a high moisture content of between 75 – 77%, spent grain gets collected and transported to our drying facility. There the process starts to dry the product to approximately 12% moisture.

We have two dryers at our facility that can dry approximately five metric ton of wet product per dryer per hour. The temperature at which we work in this process is around 500°C – 600°C.

This is an excellent commodity for dairies and enhances milk production. Some customers prefer the spent grain in its natural wet consistency and others prefer the dry spent grain and we can accommodate both.

The main reason we have invested in this facility is to get the best value for our product due to the short shelf life of approximately 3-5 days. When Barley/Spent grain is dried, it can be stored and used for 8+ months in bulk or in bags. With a protein content of 23.5% and a fibre content of 16%, this product will be of high value in any feed production.

We have easy loading processes in place with a weighbridge on-site for accurate weight loading. We deliver across Africa should you need delivery prices.
