Mi-Feed is a boutique stock feed mill on the Sunshine Coast at Yandina. In operation since 1979 we were the first to incorporate the micronisation process into the manufacture of stock feed.
What is Micronisation?
Micronisation is a process which cooks the starch in the grains thus making it more digestible for the animal. This process is called gelatinisation. The micronisation process includes firstly soaking ( steaming ) the grain and then passing it through high temperature infra-red burners and then finally rolling the grain.
This process which is similar but more efficient then steam flaking allows grain to remain partially intact but with a reduced density and increased intestinal digestion. As a result the animal will eat slower, this is especially true for horses and this slower feed intake is deemed to be beneficial in reducing the chances of colic.
