How is animal feed made?

May. 18, 2018

Animal feed is a formulated mixture created by nutritionists—the dieticians of the animal feed world—to provide the animal with the necessary balanced nutrients for proper growth, development and maintenance. Feed is designed to compensate for nutrients and supplements that may be absent from an animal’s natural diet.

Feed Processing

Animal feed mill plant use four basic processes to produce animal feed: receiving raw ingredients from suppliers; creating a feed formula based on many years of research; mixing ingredients together to make a complete feed; and packaging and labeling feed to be shipped for commercial or retail purposes.

Receiving raw ingredients from suppliers is the most important process. Upon arrival, ingredients are weighed, tested and analyzed for various nutrients to ensure their quality and safety. This feed mill plant allows nutritionists to accurately formulate feed for a specific species.


There are more than 900 agricultural ingredients and co-products used to create animal and pet food diets. Ingredients include barley, corn, distiller's grain, forage, fruits, minerals, sorghum, vegetables, vitamins and wheat. Co-products are the outputs from a manufacturing process or chemical reaction. Many animal source and vegetation co-products are used in the formulation of feed. These ingredients include, but are not limited to, animal protein, bakery co-products, blood meal, brewer's yeast, citrus pulp, distiller's grain, molasses, soybean meal and salt.
