The proposal is to construct and operate a small stock feed manufacturing facility on Lot 10 Born Road, Casuarina, in the Town of Kwinana.
The proposal involves the construction of a single skinned building (20 x 18 m), with approximately 80 m2 to house the manufacturing equipment and 240 m2 to store the finished product . External installation of storage silos would be required - four grain silos of 50 tonnes capacity and four soft material silos of 10 tonnes capacity each. In the process, cereal grains would be drawn from the silos and ground in a 30 hp hammer mill, in 0.5 tonne batches. The ground grain then would be mixed, together with meat meal or bran if required, before being conveyed to a pellet press via a 20 hp steam conditioner (590 KPA, 85-90°C), which assists in the binding of the pellets. Cooled pellets would be sieved and the finished product stored in 40 kg bags or conveyed to a bulk outloading bin.
