Three-in-One Feed Mill Efficiency and Milling Processing Aid

By improving the overall efficiency of the feed mill and pelleting process, the Maxi-Mil product portfolio brings benefits to all points of the feed chain – from producers to users.

  • Lower manufacturing costs for feed mills
  • Better quality pellets for producers, for optimal feed intake and more efficient growth

Maxi-Mil is handled by the dedicated Anitox Feed Milling technology team. Their years of experience, and in-depth knowledge of the product portfolio and the whole feed manufacturing process ensures Maxi-Mil users benefit from the most suitable product for each situation.

Applied to feed as part of the Maxi-Mil Program, Maxi-Mil products can:

  • reduce process loss
  • improve pellet feed throughput
  • reduce pellet mill power consumption
  • improve pellet quality
  • inhibit mold growth

Using Maxi-Mil

Every mill is different. Every manufacturer has slightly different requirements. Every feed formulation varies in its ingredient mix. That’s why we have different Maxi-Mil products – and there’s a Maxi-Mil product to suit you.


The addition of Maxi-Mil solution provides valuable benefits:

  • increased moisture retention during cooling process
  • improved conditioning: better moisture retention allows better thermal acceptance of the pellet press and more thorough heating of the meal particles, resulting in better gelatinization of starch, plasticization of proteins and softening of fiber
  • reduced pellet mill energy requirement
  • improved pellet stability and PDI index
  • less fines

Why Fines Matter

High levels of fines are associated with poor live weight gain and FCR, in both wheat- and maize-based diets. Every 10% reduction in feed fines is worth up to $0.03 per bird* in live weight alone, ignoring the effect on FCR.

Incorporating Maxi-Mil

To ensure you get the most from the Anitox Maxi-Mil Program, we’ve set up the Anitox Feed Milling Technology Team.

A member of our team will undertake a full assessment of your feed mill, its process and how the Maxi-Mil application can interface with your control systems to optimize application rates on each individual formulation. We’ll then continue to work with you to ensure you get the most out of Maxi-Mil.

By deploying the Maxi-Mil Program, you’ll be confident that you’re not only getting the most from your mill, but that you’re producing feed at optimum cost with the highest pellet quality. What’s more, you’re also assured of top-class customer service and ongoing technical support from the sector leader.

Your local Anitox Feed Milling Technologist is looking forward to helping you develop your own Maxi-Mil Program. Contact us to find out more.


Heat Stress In Layers

Maxi-Mil A contains acetic acid, which has been shown to benefit layers during heat stress. Maxi-Mil A treated feed increases egg production and egg weight, while improving the quality of both shell and albumen.
