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. We do everything from negotiating, buying, selling and distributing a variety of commodities in the agriculture market.

Hand-picked

We specialise in sourcing and supplying tip-top products that are not being used and end up in landfills. The importance of keeping your carbon footprint and waste levels low is essential. With this in mind, we decided to add value and contribute to sustainable animal feed requirements. We believe that selecting and processing left-over waste from food manufacturing companies will keep the price of animal feed down.

Feeding

We produce the correct balance of components in our feed. This ensures that we add the best nutritional value to the feed we produce.

Customer Service

Raw Feeds strives to assist all Dairy Farms, Feedlots, Feed Manufacturers and Farmers with commodities at low prices and high value. We want to keep costs down since the price of agricultural commodities come at high costs. This is why we source human consumption foods with high value at low prices.

Suppliers

Globally all Food/Beverage companies are required to sell waste products, but most companies don't think about sustainable methods of removing and destroying their waste. This process is expensive and has become an issue. That’s where we come in to use these products in the manufacturing of our animal feed.

Raw Materials

We supply all commodities used for animal feed. We get a high-quality supply of maize by-products from food mills, sweepings, screenings and food waste. The high-quality sugar, starch, oils and protein are easily digestible for animals.

Keep it green and keep it clean

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. Dairy cows can be fed large amounts of spent grain of up to 15kg per head daily.

PIGGERIES

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

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.

Leave the drying to us

Raw Feeds Drying

Raw Feeds has 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 undergoes a boiling process, where the sugar and starch are used for the beer-making process. The boiled barley also called 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 drying process starts until the product only has 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 ℃ - 600 ℃. 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. 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 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.
