What the Farmer knows
This information may come as no surprise to many farmers. It’s often the case that what scientists spend a lifetime trying to prove; farmers knew all along. At the end of the day, a farmer can see that whole grain is not properly digested by his or her cattle. A farmer doesn’t need a lab to prove this, a farmer can see whole grain in the ruminants manure in the same condition as when he fed it the day before!
To enhance the digestibility, grain is often crushed. The problem here is that valuable protein and energy is lost during the process. In addition rancidity progressively develops in the grain reducing the potential goodness and digestibility. Farmers know these problems but until now there has not been a viable solution.
The grain that is sprouted in a container unit is high in protein and rich in available nutritional properties. It is not a complete diet replacement as animals require fibre through roughage (ad-lib) as part of their growing and maintenance needs. FEEDGROW can however provide the farmer with a unit that is capable of producing fresh green barley that is available all year round. It is a tool that can ensure your animals have both sufficient quantity and excellent quality feed 365 days of the year.
