Livestock Fodder System
Manufactured in a self contained unit, this unique technology allows livestock owners to grow wheat and barley grass hydroponically in an environment that does not require sunlight. It is specifically designed to sprout grain and legume seeds for highly nutritious, yet cost effective livestock feed. A set temperature is maintained inside the growing chamber to ensure that the fodder achieves the best growth and highest nutritional value possible.
The sprout mat is completely edible and highly nutritious as it is a living food. The animals will eat the entire mat, roots and green growth, so there is no waste. This is an economical option allowing producers to grow their own 365 days a year, regardless of weather conditions. And, because the feed is hydroponically grown, it is fresh and clean, free of any contaminants, including pesticides and herbicides.
Barley grass is considered one of the most nutritional of the green grasses containing an abundance of nutrients unsurpassed by any other type of grass. The benefits of fresh green feed such as barley grass have been well documented over the past 50 years. Barley Grass has proven to increase the overall health of the animal through better digestion of the hay and grain. While overall wellness is the most noted result, studies indicate improved performance results in other areas as well. Not only will animals be healthier but also they will experience:
- Greater energy and vitality
- Stimulates the immune system
- Reduction in anti nutritional factors
- Antioxidant properties
