The dry" method of animal feeding with the utilization of mixed balanced fodders, alongside with its indisputable advantages of long shelf life and minimization of manual labor, also led to mass cattle epidemics of lungs silicosis, stomach disorders, etc.

After heavy thermal treatment, dry fodder mixes keep only a splinter of natural nutritive ingredients originally contained in raw products. Besides, balanced fodder mix prices are significantly higher than the price of raw materials used for its production.

Moreover, if we take into consideration the fact that the majority of cattle-breeding farms grow their own soy, peas, wheat, etc., and if we also recall the old fodder production technology, which included raw materials scalding, mixing and crushing for better assimilation, a creation of a technology for local wet fodder production becomes evident. It should be mentioned that the new technology should be less labor-extensive and more energy-saving compared to the old techniques applied by our forefathers.

As an example of "wet fodder production technology, we can mention a soy beans processing technology, keeping in mind that soy beans are the primary source of protein content of any balanced fodder mix.

It is well known that soy is a treasure chest of essential amino acids, polyunsaturated fatty acids, poly- and monosaccharides, vitamins of groups B and C, a number of microelements. Presence of several harmful ingredients (trypsin inhibitor, urease and other ferments) requires mandatory thermal treatment of soy beans, which in combination with the soaking process usually rockets the processing cost comparing to the processing cost of wheat.

Relative cheapness and long shelf life of the soy product made in extruder (equipment creating high pressure and, consequently, high temperature) does not make up for a poor quality of the end product (soy cake), because the latter loses a greater part of its vitamins, unique linoleic and linolenic fatty acids, etc. Besides, as researches show, trypsin inhibitor is not neutralized to a safe level for living organisms.

The so called "soy cows" have recently become widely spread in Ukraine. These are the machines where finely ground soy beans undergo thermal treatment with steam

(calculation is based on Ukrainian conditions)

Notorious energy extravagance of a steam generator is well known, and this drawback cannot be compensated by a relatively high quality of soy milk, the end product of this technology. Besides, soy cows produce about 30% of insoluble sediment (fiber, cellulose, etc.), which in real-life farming conditions creates significant problems for even fodder distribution.

Multiple soy beans soaking and rinsing is yet another factor downgrading the nutritive value of soy milk produced by "soy cows, since it washes out soluble proteins, starch and sugars. Most of these technologies also include soy beans shelling and hulling cycles, which also leads to further losses of nutrients. In order to avoid environment pollution with production waste, the waste water generated during soy cows operation must undergo expensive water treatment.
Thus, application of soy milk produced by conventional technologies does not allow to cut the net cost of raising young cattle and pigs.

Innovative processing technology by TEKMASH® is not burdened by these disadvantages. It implies the production of soy paste with dry matter content of 15...35% with further thinning it to soy milk consistency. The technology does not require preliminary grinding: mixing, thermal treatment and mixture homogenization are combined in one cycle in TEK-SM unit, due to the application of a number of hydrodynamic effects.

No steam or heat exchange equipment is used, that is why this machine can be referred to as energy-saving equipment (the amount of electricity required for the processing of 1lb of soy beans is only 0.23-0.27 kWhour).

Soy beans soaking under TEKMASH® technology happens only once, and all water remaining in a tub after soy saturation goes in the machine reservoir. This means that all soluble nutrients solved in this water will get to the end product. Soy beans shelling or hulling are not required either. In other words, all of this confirms that TEKMASH® technology is wasteless and environment friendly.

Application of an anaerobic soy processing technology in a hydromodule allows to keep the entire complex of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, polyunsaturated fatty acids, fiber and sugars in the end product, unlike in soy cake and soy flour, where the content of nutrients is significantly lower.

The net cost of soy milk production under TEKMASH® technology is 1.7 to 2.2 times lower than the soy milk cost under the soy cows technology. Owing to this, a cattle breeding farm can save 18...22% on the fattening of just one calf.

TEKMASH® soy beans processing technology with TEK-SM equipment allows:

  • to raise the farms profit margins by 18...22% by cutting the fodders cost;
  • to keep all nutritive ingredients contained in soy beans;
  • to reduce the net cost of soy milk:
    • by almost 4 times comparing to the cost of milk produced from soy flour;
    • by 1.7-2.2 times comparing to the cost of milk produced under the conventional technology using steam;
  • to cut energy consumption by 3 to 5 times comparing to the conventional processing methods;
  • to add necessary mineral components in the fodder mix in the process of production;
  • to eliminate the necessity to use expensive waste treatment facilities.

Dear Sirs,

TEKMASH® company has recently adapted the above described soy beans processing technology for the conditions of cattle and pigs production in Ukraine, Belorus and Russia. You can learn more about this at the following websites:

The introduction experience in scores of farms in Ukraine has proved that increase or farms profit margin by 1.5-2.5 times (owing to fodders cost reduction by 18...20%) is a reality.

We are now exploring the peculiarities of cattle and pigs feeding in the countries of North American continent for adaptation of our technologies in these countries.

Animal Feeding chapter will be regularly updated with new information, and we hope that you will provide us with your active assistance in this area.
Today we need information on raw materials prices, labor cost, prepared fodders, etc. The obtained data will help us to calculate the actual savings, which farmers in Canada, the U.S. and Mexico can enjoy.
If savings turn out to be as impressive as they are in our country, we plan to set up equipment production and create a TEKMASH® Technology Training Center in your country.

We thank you in advance for any assistance you can provide us in the promotion of the new technology!
We also invite private and public companies active in animal husbandry and cattle farming for various forms of cooperation.

S.B. Osipenko, Scientific Supervisor, Ph.D.

The following information is relevant for cattle and pig farms in Ukraine, provided for reference purposes.

Did you know

that you are unlikely to find an agricultural crop, which processing cost would be as high as the one for soy beans: the cost of an end-product is 1.5 to 10 times higher than the cost of raw soy beans!

The nature made a wonderful gift to us soy beans, a balanced, unique source of vitamins enabling us to make the most out of their valuable components.

It sounds preposterous, but people first extract only proteins from soy beans dumping everything else, and then add artificial vitamins and minerals for better assimilation!!!
