About Pellet Mill

You trudge out to the barn on Saturday morning, scoop grain into plastic buckets for your animals, and ruminate on the rising cost of feeding your livestock. One way to lower the expenses associated with livestock is to make your own grain with a pellet mill. These machines turn raw materials, such as flower and grass, into pelletized grain suitable for sheep, cows, goats, horses, and other farm animals. A pellet mill is also an attractive option for people who raise small animals, such as rabbits, for sale or breeding. Of course, making animal feed is not the only use for these machines. Wood pellet mills allow you to generate your own fuel pellets for energy, for example. They can reduce your carbon footprint as well as your energy costs at home, on the farm, or in the workplace. Choosing a size that is appropriate for your operation is one of the most important steps. Smaller mills are easier to transport and to maintain than their industrial-size counterparts. There is a large inventory of pellet mills on eBay, so you have plenty of options for setting up your own pellet mill operation.
