FarmTek Introduces Commercial Fodder Systems and Turnkey Solutions

Commercial Fodder SystemIt’s been too long since my last blog post, but with good reason. Our phones and websites have been inundated with fodder inquiries now that we have rolled out two amazing additions to our FodderPro Feed Systems product line.

First and foremost, our FodderPro 3.0 Commercial Feed Systems are now available in 750 lb. or 1,150 lb. per day modules. With a footprint of 7’ wide by 20’ or 30’ long (respectively), the commercial system modules were designed to grow more fodder in less space and less time. The Commercial Systems feature 6’3″ long growing channels that are each 16″ wide and 2″ deep and supported by a galvanized steel frame. The channels are slightly sloped; the high side is the water supply end and the low side is where the fodder is harvested from. The supply side reaches a maximum height of 87” where the harvest side is just 73”, making operation of the system quite user friendly and negating the need for ladders or rolling stairs. Even my 5’2” self is able to access the top growing level, I love it!Commercial Fodder System

FodderPro 3.0 Commercial Feed Systems are designed to be installed with the supply end approximately 2’ from a wall with a work alley on the harvest side for ease of operation. We suggest a minimum of a 16’ wide area for installation of a Commercial System module. As with the FodderPro 2.0 Feed Systems, the Commercial modules are designed to be easily connected in order to produce higher yields. Additional modules can be branched off from your master water supply line.Fodder Fed at Commercial Dairy

    Definitely a large scale operation for dairy cattle. How long do you think until you see the benefits in cost saving?

    • Duy,

      You would need a large facility for that scale of production. In order to meet this production goal, we would recommend a custom FodderPro 3.0 Commercial Feed System. If you would like to learn more about this system and the facility required for such a level of production. We recommend contacting a Fodder Specialist by phone at 860-528-1119. We would be happy to discuss this with you in greater detail over the phone.

      Thank you.
