Technology and evolution have been embraced in agriculture and farming. The consideration of change can be seen in Kenya’s increased education in agriculture. Education has determined the various forms in which feeds can be administered to animals for increased palatability and ingestion.
Pellets have been considered an effective form of feed administration to animals where wastage is minimized through spillage of feeds. The mineral and nutritional contents of the meals can also be increased in a specific feed. Therefore, the machine becomes handy in converting finely ground animal feeds into edible pellets. The end product can also be customized to the needs of a specific animal in terms of the size and the content inclusion of the pellets.
The article will evaluate the factor that may govern an individual acquiring a machine for making pellets. The device’s generative need will manage the machine’s type and size to be developed. Kenya presents a broad market for various such machines for individual and commercial use. The customization is based on the designated purpose and the relevancy to the operation of the equipment.
The factors determined assesses the individual needs that are not considered in the general presentation of the machine. Particular operation of the machines is handled in the conceptualization process for standardized provisions, power consumption, and the operating mechanism.
The concepts do not describe the customer’s needs but rather the ability of a machine to perform its designated duties.
Amount of Feeds Required
The needs of an individual are described in the purpose of the feeds designated. One can acquire the machine for individual needs of their farms or purchase it for commercial purposes. The factor governs the type and the size of the equipment one purchase.
A commercial machine can also be purchased for individual purposes if the feed required is considerable. The pellet making machine in Kenya will be determined by the ability of an individual to handle the number of orders of the meals.
Condition of the Raw Materials
The mechanism of pellet making requires the raw materials to be finely ground before being fed into the machine for processing and making. Sometimes, the raw materials are not in the designated condition, or obtaining the raw materials is not feasible.
The acquisition process will, therefore, be interrupted due to the unavailability of the raw materials. Including the factor demonstrates the relevancy of pressing units as part of the machine to allow one to complete their operations without interruption. One can process the raw materials and convert them to finished products without depending on external processing processes.
Kenya is in its industrialization phase, converting most generators and motors to electrical mechanisms for clean energy. The acquisition process will be governed by the ability of the machine to use electricity to power its mechanism.
The factor relates to efficiency, where power utilized should be minimal to control product prices and costs. Most motors should be optimized to yield effective results with minimal power consumption.
The article has demonstrated the factors an individual might consider before acquiring a pellet-making machine. The presentation of Kenya has described farmers’ individual needs and the machine’s commercial use.
