Animal Feed Bagging Equipment and Systems for 20-100lb. Bags

palletizing robot stacking bags of livestock feed pellets

Use professionally manufactured animal feed bagging equipment and systems to fill 20-100lb. paper or plastic open mouth bags (50lb. bags being the most popular) with many different types of feed.  Buy just the feed bagger or an entire bagging system that includes a 25-100 cu. ft. storage hopper, feed bagger, bag conveyors, bag sewing machine, palletizer, and more.

Need an automated solution for faster bagging and palletizing?

We can also provide a custom engineered solution to fit existing bagging operations including a high-speed net weigh bagger, bag conveyors, bag palletizing robots, and more.

1. Entry-Level Animal Feed Bagging (4-6 bags per minute)

  • Engineered for bagging many different types of free-flowing animal feed – livestock feed, cattle feed, deer corn, horse feed, bird feed, feed additives, and more
  • Lower cost, manual mechanical gross weight bagging scale – allows one operator to fill up to 6 bags per minute to a typical scale weight accuracy of +/- 1% target weight.
  • Increase production and fill accuracy – using a digital scale bagging machine with a typical scale weight accuracy of +/- 0.5% to 1% target weight.
  • 25 or 70 cu. ft. bagger supply hoppers – professionally manufactured, high-strength, and 2-part epoxy coated hoppers that work seamlessly with bagging equipment.
  • Bag sewing system – a single operator sews bags on an 8 ft. long conveyor with pedestal mounted bag sewing machine.
  • In the future, this system can be upgraded – with a high-speed bag sewing system, bag palletizing robot, and stretch wrapper for even higher rates of packaging.
  • Use bulk bags or a pro box / bin to store feed? – use a big bag unloader to supply your baggers or hoppers. We also manufacture a Buckhorn Pro Box bin discharge stand that works seamlessly with these bagging machines.

2. Semi-Automatic Animal Feed Bagging (10-12 bags per minute)

  • 80-100 cu. ft. hoppers – store more feed for faster bagging rates
  • High-speed net weigh bagger – feed is automatically loaded into an internal weigh hopper while a bag is being filled below, thus increasing bag fill rates
  • Bagging sticky feeds? – use a belt-fed gross weigh bagger. For bagging powders and feed additives, we recommend an auger fed bagger.
  • An operator manually places a bag on the machine’s spout – a pneumatic bag clamp engages and holds the bag on the spout during filling.  Add an automatic bag hanger to increase automation.
  • High-speed bag sewing system – after filling, the bag drops onto a closing conveyor and travels through a bag sewer
  • Bag conveyors – after sewing the bag is “knocked down”, travels through a bag flattener, and then onto a palletizing conveyor
  • Palletizing – flattened bags are manually palletized by an operator(s) or with a semi-automatic robotic palletizing system

Watch a Video

This video shows an automated feed bagging system.  Even though the system has a high-speed bagger and automatic bag hanger, it falls under the “semi-automatic” category because palletizing is done manually by multiple operators at the end of the bagging line.

  • High-speed bag sewing system – the bagger drops the filled bags onto a closing conveyor, where they travel through a high-speed bag sewing system
  • Bag conveyors – after sewing, bags are “knocked down”, travel through a bag flattener, and then onto a robot pick conveyor.
  • Fully-automatic palletizing system – with pallet dispenser, stretch wrapper, and bag palletizing robot
