The Chemikol fodder feedouts are hydroponic growing rooms specifically developed to sprout grain and legume seeds for highly nutritious yet cost effective livestock feeds.

These innovative fodder feedouts comprise a series of specialised growing trays onto which a selection of grains and legume seeds are spread and watered at pre-determined intervals with overhead sprays. A set temperature is maintained inside the chamber to ensure the best growth and highest nutritional value fodder possible. The fodder systems hold enough trays so that the desired amount of feed is available everyday.

The sprouts grow on the fodder solutions 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 as a 15 to 20cm high grass mat.

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. There are no added nutrients.

The Chemikol fodder feedouts offers low operating costs and require minimum labour as a typical operation only takes from only 15 to 60 minutes per day to harvest, clean and seed.
