Livestock production levels are currently unable to meet market demand. This is because the method used to produce livestock feeds is unproductive and efficient, beside lack of technology to process livestock feed. Therefore, some improvements should be made to ensure the sustainability, speed, and quality of feed stuffs with the complete specifications. Normally, livestock production process involves the following process processes which are crushing of raw materials, drying of raw materials that have been crushed, blending of feedstuffs with certain additives, and production of the products either in the form of pellets or pads. The main objective were to develop and fabricate the improvement component in processing the animal feed, increase the production rate and increase the chef life of the animal feed. So, towards the steps to improve the livestock production, industry A was selected the design 1 for their fabrication. The components contained in design 1 are the feeder machine, roller conveyor, weight balance, and packaging system. For feeder machines, several simulated has been tested to identify the stress and strength of the feeder machine in the real situation. After feeder machine modifications have been passed all the simulation tests, an agronomic features has been applied to the design, in addition to help solving the problem of agronomic conditions to the workers. After fabricated, the feed processing machine is tested to determine the extent to which the productivity and efficiency of the food feed can be improved. With the improvement toward the machine compared to existing, the production rate of the industry shows double increment from its original state. For the packing system, to ensure that the feed product can last a long time, the plastic that should be used is a plastic with thickness of 0.8mm, and the air contained in the plastic should be removed by using industrial vacuum. With this method the livestock feed will be long lasting.
