Award winning Australian technology which produces nutritious green feed for livestock in just six days is making its debut in the United States.
Fodder Solutions has sold more than 300 climate controlled growing chambers to farmers across Australia, enabling them to transform grain seed and water into highly palatable feed harvested fresh daily, regardless of seasonal conditions.
All classes of livestock love the densely matted sprouts which they devour roots and all with no waste. Systems are being used to feed beef and dairy cattle, horses, sheep, goats, free range pigs and even rabbits. Animals on a spout diet gain condition and are healthier, with enhanced breeding performance reported.
Now the system is being introduced to the US market with a manufacturing facility established at Oxnard near Los Angeles in California. The first US producer to use Fodder Solutions technology in commercial production will be Californian organic milk producer Bill Van Ryn. He has relocated the 72 tray system built in Australia and shipped out for the Agricultural Expo to his farm near Modesto.
