FarmTek Introduces Commercial Fodder Systems and Turnkey Solutions
It’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!
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.
Staying in touch with 2.0 Systems, Commercial 3.0 Feed Systems are also offered as build-to-suit. FarmTek can retrofit most any existing facility to make it appropriate for growing fodder. Our team of dedicated Fodder Specialists is excited to offer suggestions for any application to ensure your needs are met.
To support the 3.0 Systems, we offer complete turnkey solutions that include everything soup-to-nuts you will need to produce fodder on any scale. Turnkey orders include:
