The key drivers for cost effective and sustainable feed solutions are
- Small foot prints for cattle grazing
- The need for healthy and nutritious feed for cattle
- The premium cost of land
- The depleting water resources and rising labor costs.
The company's innovative breakthrough in the revolutionary cost effective feed and ergonomically build solutions makes UFS invaluable. Presently, the need for environmentally specialized firms and businesses to fulfill this need is apparent and has become increasingly large.
UFS designs, manufactures, markets and sells a unique range of hydroponic livestock feed growing systems. These developed systems range in daily production varying from 50Kg to 30 tonnes of production per day.
The system is a hydroponic growing room that has been specifically developed to sprout grain and legume seeds, for highly nutritious, yet cost effective livestock feed. A selection of grains and legume seeds are spread onto the specialized growing trays and are watered at pre-determined intervals with overhead sprays. A set temperature is maintained inside the growing chamber, to ensure the best growth and highest nutritional value fodder possible.
Each day you simply slide the feed out of the trays, rinse the tray, reseed and push the newly seeded tray into the other end of the system. The System holds enough trays to ensure you produce your desired and nominated amount of feed every day.
The sprouts grow on the UFS specially designed sprouting trays with no growing medium. Feed-quality barley germinates within 24 hours of seeding. The barley grows in the same tray for 6-days and is ready for harvest at a 12inch high grass mat. It takes six days to grow from seeding to feed out!
The “sprout mat” is completely edible and highly nutritious as it is a living food. The animals will eat the entire mat, roots and green growth, so there is no waste. UFS has its affiliates/partners globally. Fodder systems are exported globally.
