Fodder is up to 80% digestible as opposed to about 30% digestibility for dry grain. Higher fat, protein, and simple sugar content will add butterfat to dairy cows/goats, add muscle and fat to feeder cattle, and provides complete nutrition for horses, alpaca, rabbits, chickens, etc...
Fodder is very cost effective. You are basically creating pasture out of water and thin air. Growing fodder can reduce your feeding cost by up to 50%!
The entire mat is eagerly consumed, roots and all. There is no waste from fodder. Animal waste breaks down more easily and there is less animal waste (manure) due to the high percentage of fodder being digested.
Provides Superior Nutrition
Fodder provides a much higher protein and vitamin content than dry grain. Since the
mat is living, it also provides enzymes, pro-biotics, and micro-nutrients that are not available in dry
Year Round Green Feed
Enjoy the rich milk and eggs one usually gets only during the Spring year round; grow a little fodder inside, or grow fodder in your shed! Ours is grown in a portable carport.
It takes much less water to grow Fodder than to water pasture. Water can be
recirculated through the system and then used to water other crops.
Peace of Mind
Grow Fodder regardless of local weather conditions. A year's worth of grain can be
purchased while prices are low and stored to be used as needed. Fodder can also be refrigerated for up to three days!
