For Your Farm, Home or Shop
Sturdy, safe and affordable buildings that can be installed quickly and are guaranteed to last are hard to come by, especially during these economic times. However, our newly offered PermaTherm Insulated Metal Buildings meet these requirements and then some. The high-performance architectural insulating panels allow for a rapid installation time, require little overall maintenance, give reliable climate control and offer sustained energy savings. The expanded panels, designed with a highly insulating polystyrene core and laminated with 26-gauge galvanized steel, can be customized to meet any application, including fire resistance and extreme-temperature conditions. Our lightweight, yet strong, insulated metal panels make these buildings an ideal choice for agricultural, greenhouse, hydroponic and fodder system applications.
If you are looking for lighting that is bright but isn’t overly intense, our new 34W Outdoor Wall Mount LED Fixture is the perfect solution. The black, powder-coated finish and die-cast aluminum housing protects the 34W bulb, which is encased behind a layer of tempered glass. With a minimum life of 50,000 hours, this light fixture provides adequate lighting without blocking out that beautiful country night sky.
Is clutter making it hard to move around your shed, barn or garage? If so, our new Tool Rack will allow you to once again move about your storage area in peace. These easy-to-install racks are designed to keep shovels, brooms, rakes and other tools off the floor. The heavy-duty construction provides durability and also allows for the rack to hold tools of any weight.
For Your Livestock
The most compact fodder system from FarmTek yet, the GT80 Hydroponic Fodder System is designed to provide maximized growth within a compact area. This state-of-the-art system allows you to lower feed costs while optimizing the general health and performance of your livestock. Operating on a 7-day cycle, the system allows you to produce up to 13 lbs. of nutrient-rich fodder daily for just pennies a pound. Featuring a nutrient film technique watering regimen, the need for overhead watering is eliminated. This greatly reduces water consumption and humidity levels, lowering the presence of fungus and mold. The single-layer of eight, 30” UV-stabilized, NSF-quality PVC channels are supported by galvanized steel framing. Taking up only 7’ in total length, the GT80 series is ideal for small farms and those looking to produce fodder in tight spaces.
If you are looking to grow fodder on the commercial level, the FodderPro 3.0 Commercial Feed Module is for you. Capable of producing 375 lbs. of fodder per day, this large scale system is ideal for large livestock operations, equine boarding facilities and more. Each module is 7’3”H x 6’W x 9’9”L and provides a high-quality, nutritional product on a large scale.
Too accompany our new commercial fodder system, we added some new accessories to make growing a breeze. Our newly developed FodderPro 3.0 Seed Spreader and Scrub Brush are designed to ensure that you get the most out of your seed. Our Seed Spreader allows for easy, even distribution of seed throughout the FodderPro 3.0 channels, ensuring proper water flow and optimal germination. Our Scrub Brush makes cleaning and sanitizing your FodderPro 3.0 Feed System a simple task. Clean, sanitary channels are necessary for producing fodder, and our Scrub Brush can help ensure that no seed is wasted due to mold from unsanitary channels.
We have also made some updates to many of our livestock feeders. Our new Little Giant 26-quart Corner Feeder is 2 quarts larger than ever before! Made of high-impact polyethylene plastic, this corner feeder is perfect for horses, sheep, goats and more, and it can stand up to tough farm use. Our 9-quart Foal Feeder bucket has also undergone some positive changes. We now produce our Foal Feeder with 4 rails instead of 2. This gives added assurance that larger horses will not eat the food intended for young foal, ensuring the proper nutrition for your growing livestock. We have also updated our 9-quart Hookover Feeder, which is excellent for feeding goats, sheep, alpacas and llamas. The galvanized steel grid of the Hookover Feeder forms six feeding slots to keep your livestock from pushing one another out. This unique grid also adds strength to the feeder and the reinforced hooks provide extra support on the ends.
