Cost optimization with rye
Rye is a winter crop; it is less affected by climatic conditions and compares favorably with other cereal crops with stable crops. In terms of energy concentration, the grain of winter rye approaches the grain of winter wheat and surpasses the grain of oats and winter barley. In terms of crude protein, rye grain is slightly inferior to the grain of other cereals (only 1-2%), but in terms of lysine level it exceeds them.
Rye is one of the main grain crops in Russia, in third place in terms of gross grain harvest (after wheat and barley), and in second place in bread production. The country’s soil and climatic conditions are favorable for the cultivation of rye, as the most cold-resistant grain crop, not very demanding on soil fertility and ripening 1-2 weeks earlier than other grains.
Domestic rye prices are lower than wheat prices.
Unclaimed resources of rye grain annually amount to 1.5 – 2.0 million tons.
Obtaining rye concentrate (in the form of compound feed) using traditional technologies is laborious and energy-intensive due to the high content of corned beef and water-soluble substances (12-17%), as well as the presence of a complex protein-carbohydrate complex.
Equipment for the production of liquid feed KU 400/600 significantly reduces the cost of the process of obtaining rye concentrate and makes it possible to use up to 100% rye in feed without harm to animals.
