Fresh and nutritious fodder in only 9 days
The Almighty Fodder Super Cell which can produce low cost, lush and
nutritious fresh fodder for over 100 cattle or other grazing animals such as
camels every day after only nine days. The system which is developed in
Australia will be presented at next month's AGRA Middle East (AGRAme)
'Not only will you be able to see this revolutionary
new technology, you will also be able to taste the quality of beef that is grown
on the fodder,' said Jim Meltz, Show Manager for AGRAme. The company's stand
will feature one of Australia's renowned chefs, Michael Junghans, who will be
cooking some of the beef from Australian Organic Meats which is grown on the
fodder. 800 kilos
The system which fits in a 12
metre shipping container is operated by loading 1.5 kilos of barley seed to each
of 600 trays. Water tanks are filled and nutrient added. The process continues
for eight days until all trays are loaded and growing. At nine days, the farmer
can remove 800 kilos of high protein feed for his animals from the tray
rotation, enough for 110 head of cattle with all the nutrition they require, at
a considerably lower cost than traditional animal feed methods.
system similar to that used on space stations and proposed for future manned
colonies on the Moon and Mars to produce food. Even condensation from air
conditioning units is returned to the system for further use.
This process of germinating grain
for fodder production has potential to drought proof a farming operation or
provides a continuous supply any season of the year. 'The market potential for
this technology in a region such as the Middle East where the growing of pasture
is almost impossible is potentially enormous,' Meltz added.
