At this stage, a belt conveyor transports the pellets into a cooler.  Air pulled through the cooler cools, dries, and hardens the pellets making them resistant to spoilage and breakage.  The pellets are then discharged into a shaker which is a fines removal system.  Fines are small particles of alfalfa, bermuda, or corn that are byproducts of the pelleting process.

Pellets are stored separately for bulk (unpackaged) sales and packaging.
