How to Know Which Grain Roaster is Right for My Business

If you’re new to the world of grain roasting, welcome! Grain roasters and the process of flame kissing grains for your animal feed offers many benefits – but knowing which roaster is right for your needs isn’t always easy.

We’re sharing some helpful insight on roasters, capacities, and pricing to help you determine which model is the best choice for you. 

Why should you buy a grain roasting machine?

For farms of all sizes, grain roaster machines are not only useful as a tool for processing grain but their added benefits to animal health are nearly indispensable. Roasted grains like soybeans or corn become more digestible and tasty after roasting which can make a difference especially in animal nutrition. Since animals can have a feed of better quality, their health, strength, and overall development are all positively impacted. 

Benefits directly to your farm operation and animals are also influenced by your roaster or lack thereof. 

Grain roasting allows you to:

  • Increase digestibility for your animals
  • Reduce harmful toxins in the feed
  • Improve animal health
  • Increase profits by increasing your animal health and create better, higher quality products – which you can also charge more for
