Rotating Fodder Machine (RGS)
Patent Number AU02/00097
The patented technology was developed in-house by A&B Hydroponics International Pty Ltd. The company owns all Intellectual Property.
Other production sizes to produce fodder are also available.
Capable of producing up to 2000kg of green fodder every day in only 90m2 area.
Farmers can be guaranteed a regular supply of fodder all year round of the same high quality, irrespective of climate conditions.
The world's first fodder rotating, high yield producing, hydroponic system has been developed & trialed with outstanding success by A&B Hydroponics International. In a fully environmentally controlled greenhouse of approx 90 m2, the environmentally controlled unit provides the correct temperature, humidity & air ozone within the greenhouse. The greenhouse is also covered by 75mm-125mm thick coolroom building material, which provides excellent temperature control. The Rotating Fodder Machine enables growers to produce fresh fodder of around 700,000 kilos per annum equivalent to 50 acres (200,000 sq meters of grass pasture). This is approximately 2000 kilos per day of high quality stock feed in both protein & calcium.
The Rotating Fodder Machine has extensive market potential worldwide - particularly where climate conditions restrict farming; where soil is eroded/depleted/saline & where farming land is scarce/expensive.
The Rotating Fodder Machine unit comprises of 2 sections, approx 6m high. The fodder greenroom is approx 8m high. The fodder greenroom will come complete with a fully environmentally controlled unit providing the desired climate, humidity & ozone throughout the year, eliminating problems that have been caused by the use of evaporative coolers, such as bacteria & mould.
