U.S. & CANADIAN PATENTED HYDROPONICS TECHNOLOGY TO MEET YOUR
land values and unsettled climatic conditions have made once abundant
forage-growing acreage very valuable yet highly unpredictable. GREENFIELD
has developed world's first Solar Photo Voltaic and 110/220 volt
Powered Hydroponics Greenhouse "Hydro Fodder Farm", a
breakthrough that will allow economical fodder production in even
the driest, most remote, or valuable locations.
"Hydro Fodder Farm" is constructed of prefabricated steel
or fiberglass insulating panels, making up to the one-ton (per day)
unit portable. The "Hydro Fodder Farm" controls the temperature
and maintains a 24-hour a day growing environment and by powering
fluorescent lights that allow photosynthesis to take place. Watering
is provided by either sprinkler or drip irrigation and requires
approximately 200 US gallons or 800 liters of water daily for fodder
self-contained and self-regulating, the greenhouse unit automatically
controls the water pump, temperature system and photosynthetic lighting
for optimum efficiency.
FEED PROGRAMS FOR QUALITY LIVESTOCK
production capacity is constant in terms of quality and volume of
fodder produced per day, 365 days a year. Outside contaminants such
as dust and toxins from agri-chemicals are not found because of
the controlled growing environment. As the daily crop is fed immediately
to the herd, it is always moist. This moisture provides two major
benefits; reduced water consumption and less dust in the stall environment.
altering the water supplied to the seedlings, the fodder can be
customized to suit a particular feed program. The nutrient that
is supplied to the plants will eventually, if not immediately, be
ingested by the livestock as a part of the normal food chain process.
Therefore modified, natural, nutritional programs can be developed.
like the fresh fodder produced in the hydroponics greenhouse. Palatability
and digestibility is always a concern to the livestock owners, the
fresh fodder grown in a GREENFIELD'S "Hydro Fodder Farm"
eliminates that concern.
Fodder Farm" grows fresh, natural, controllable, and dust free
and highly nutritive feed!
FEED THAT PAYS FOR ITSELF
"Hydro Fodder Farm" only requires an area of 300 square
feet to produce over 400 tons of fresh barley fodder per year. Which
is equivalent to 25 acres of an agricultural land in the tropical
climatic conditions. This means that the entire fodder requirements
for a herd of 200 horses or 100 cattle for an example could be grown
in the same space of the average two car garage, spring, summer,
fall, or winter and can be leased as little as $50.00 per day! Acreage
normally devoted to the production of fodder can be used for other
purposes, a new training track, an exercise paddock, or new buildings.
Smaller farms, with little feed acreage; can now enlarge their herd
size without enlarging their real estate.
land utility is not the only economic factor favoring the GREENFIELD
system. Fodder costs are perhaps the biggest advantage.
materials are inexpensive and easy to find. Barley seed, water,
fresh air and sunshine are all that is required, while six to eight
hours of labor per day will harvest, sow and maintain a productive
crop. With all of these advantages, you will love making hay as
much as your horses will love eating it!
