Large-scale production in a fodder shed: this is what our intelligent factories look like

Hydroponic green feed production in a fodder shed is an increasingly popular solution for large livestock producers looking to provide high quality feed for their animals all year round. This system is especially interesting for countries with arid or very cold climates, as it allows green fodder to be grown even in adverse weather conditions, which means significant savings in the costs of importing a certain amount of feed.

In these fodder sheds, hydroponic systems and technology are used to grow green fodder, which allows the growth environment of the plants to be controlled through the use of artificial light, irrigation and nutrient supply. This allows for more consistent and higher quality harvests, and above all 100% stable, regardless of outside weather conditions. In addition, this type of fodder shed is equipped with automation systems, which maximizes efficiency.

Once the plants have been grown, the animals can be fed continuously and gradually, ensuring that they always have access to a fresh, high-quality feed source. In addition, hydroponic green fodder has numerous nutritional benefits for the animals, as it is rich in protein, minerals and vitamins. Animals fed hydroponic green fodder have better development, are more resistant to diseases, and their milk and meat production is of higher quality.

Advantages for the animals of consuming hydroponic feed produced in a forage hall

  •     Stable and high quality feed all year round, regardless of the weather.
  •     Improved animal development, health and productivity.
  •     Rich in proteins, minerals and vitamins for optimal animal nutrition.
  •     Improved quality of milk and meat produced.

The intensive and continuous production of hydroponic green fodder has numerous advantages for meat and milk producers. First of all, it allows obtaining a high quality feed for the animals throughout the year, which improves their health and productivity. In addition, having a stable and quality feed reduces the cost of feeding, since constant purchases of external feed are avoided.

Advantages of having a hydroponic forage house for livestock companies

  • Greater efficiency in the use of resources, such as water.
  • Reduced feed costs by avoiding constant purchases of external feed.
  • Reduced dependence on external crops.
  • Automation systems to maximize efficiency and reduce the time and effort required for maintenance.

Hydroponic green fodder production also has a positive impact on the environment, as it uses less water and resources than traditional cultivation methods. This reduces production costs and improves the sustainability of the business.
