Animal Feed

With their connection to agriculture, feed producers too often turn to farm-grade machinery for their mills. Such machinery underperforms in an industrial setting, however, as it’s designed for seasonal use, not year-round operation. BE&E can supply you with the right equipment for consistent performance without the same maintenance difficulties that come with light-duty or agricultural-grade machines. We can supply your operation with efficient, mill-grade transfer and metering that will allow you to focus on profit centers, not your material handling systems. Turn to us for:

  • Turn-key pellet mills
  • Complete material handling
  • Screening
  • Turn-key Chipping / Grinding / Shredding
  • Storage
  • Loadout
