Abstract

The feed mixer which performs the combined job of milling the materials and then mixes it have been developed in this study. The machine contains two chambers which are the mixing and the milling chamber. The machine was fabricated using locally sourced materials like the square pipes, metal sheet. The equipment used for the design of the machine are the arc welding machine, angle grinder etc. The machine was tested, the efficiency and capacity of the machine was also determined. The machine has an efficiency of 80% and a capacity of 12kg/hr. The machine is able to crush the grains and also mixes it efficiently. The machine is useful for small scale farmers in producing feed for their poultry livestock at a very avoidable cost.
