Compound feed production is a complicated operation that requires processing of a heterogeneous mixture of many ingredients into uniform pellets. Feed mills are fundamental to animal production, but are facing important challenges, such as ensuring profitability and safety of milling operations. 

We aim to help feed mills to focus on their Feed Processing Key Performance Indicators for additional ways to increase profitability. We support feed mills to ensure all aspects of the manufacturing process are optimized so that you can maintain feed profitability.

The variability of moisture in feed raw materials, in processing feed has seen to increase cost by up to 50%. Therefore, we eliminate large process fluctuations, reducing variability and improving quality of process operations and pellets with the millSMART programme. This programme provides key benefits and insights, explained in an article published in Feed Compounder 'Efficient feed processing for profitable and safe feed with Kemin's millSMART programme'.

millSMART Programme

Kemin’s programme for effective feed processing, ensures feed mill profitability, improves feed pellet quality, feed safety, productivity and sustainability. Our millSMART programme product range consists of several solutions. 


Opti CURB® is  an activated solution of either:

Myco CURB® to form Opti CURB M

Sal CURB® to form Opti CURB S

KEM WET™ to form Opti CURB K

The three product ranges with versatile usage are effectively applied via Kemin’s engineering application technology.
