We Grow Things
Fodder Green grows high-quality animal feed in distributed farms using 0.5% of the water and 1000X less land than growing lucerne (alfalfa) in an irrigated field. Fresh barley and legume sprouts are grown 365-days a year and take only 6 days from seed to feed. High in protein, minerals and amino acids, fresh sprouts provide a highly nutritious feed for cattle, horse, pigs, small stock, chickens and game that leads to superior feeding results.
Fodder fed animals have higher fertility, better milk production in dairy cows and weight gains in intensive feeding programs. Fodder Green presents the opportunity to transform the livestock farming system in Africa, including the introduction of viable dairy farming. Fodder Green is currently in the start-up phase and Accite runs fodder machines producing 1.5T of fresh feed per day.
