Study: Liquid methionine reduces pelleting energy costs

Physical form of methionine can influence pellet mill's energy consumption
In the feed mill, pellet production is one of the most energy-consuming steps; therefore, the pursuit of any optimization is beneficial. Recent studies have shown that the addition of a liquid source of methionine may lead to a savings of up to 7 percent compared with the powder form when pelletizing.
