The aim of this study was conducted to determine the effects of sepiolite usage on pellet production parameters and pellet quality characteristics for dairy cattle concentrate feed under regular industrial conditions. In the experiment, 14 mt pellet feeds for control and two treatment groups with 7 batch each were produced in a commercial feed factory. Each batch was 2 mt. Control group feed produced contained 87.37% dry matter, 18.06% crude protein, 6.95% crude fibre and 5.34% ether extract. For the treatment groups, 1% and 1.5% sepiolite (Exal T) were used as top dressed in the mixer. Pelleting disc having 6.5 mm hole diameter was used in the factory. Energy consumption during pellet manufacturing was decreased with sepiolite supplementation (P
Bu çalışmanın amacı, endüstriyel koşullar altında süt sığırı konsantre yemlerinde sepiyolit kullanımının pelet üretim parametreleri ve pelet kalite özelliklerine olan etkisini belirlemektir. Denemede, kontrol ve 2 deneme grubunun her biri için yedişer parti olmak üzere toplam 14 tonluk pelet yem ticari bir yem fabrikasında üretilmiştir. Her parti 2 tondur. Üretilen kontrol grubu yemi %87.37 kuru madde, %18.06 ham protein, %6.95 ham selüloz ve %5.34 eter ekstraktı içermektedir. Deneme grupları yemine, %1 ve %1.5 sepiyolit (Exal T) karıştırıcıda dökme olarak (top dressed) ilave edilmiştir. Fabrikada 6.5 mm delik çaplı peletleme diski kullanılmıştır. Pelet üretimi süresince sepiyolit ilavesiyle enerji tüketimi azalmış (P
