Hydroponic Fodder System: The Best Choice For Producing Fresh Fodder

2023-03-16
When it comes to fodder for livestock, we have to mention a popular fodder planting method - hydroponic Fodder System.Perhaps everyone's impression of hydroponics  only stays in the category of hydroponic vegetables and hydroponic flowers. In fact, hydroponic fodder almost appears at the same time. The traditional fodder types used to feed livestock mainly include coarse fodder (hay, straw, agricultural and sideline products, etc.), green fodder (forage, leafy vegetables, aquatic plants, etc.), silage, energy fodder (grain, bran, grass seeds and tree seeds, etc.).

Generally, farmers will choose to plant their own crops for feeding, but in recent years, the lack of water and soil resources has made it more difficult to plant the feed required for feeding. The feed sold on the market is not only of low nutritional value but also of high price, which will lead to little profit for farmers. The emergence of hydroponic feed will play a great role in alleviating this problem.

What is hydroponic fodder?

Hydroponic fodder is a kind of forage grass planted without soil. The seeds can germinate very quickly in about one week, and the grass planted can be as high as 18 cm. Hydroponic fodder does not depend on soil and requires low water content. In addition, it has low requirements for external conditions. It can be planted at any time as needed. In the case of reduced grassland, water shortage in feed planting and difficulty in producing green fodder all year round, hydroponic fodder can be used to feed livestock.

What are the advantages of hydroponic fodder?

The growth rate of hydroponic fodder is fast and the growth cycle is short.

Hydroponic fodder takes a short time, and can grow in almost a week. This growth rate can greatly save time and cost for farmers. Compared with traditional fodder, it can be said that it is very fast and can produce more feed in the same time.

High nutritional value of hydroponic fodder.

The hydroponic fodder does not need to be fertilized or sprayed with pesticides, which ensures the freshness and safety of feed to the maximum extent. The grass harvested in this way is fresh, green and tasty. And because there is not too much pesticide residue, it can effectively prevent livestock diseases from entering the mouth, which is very beneficial to livestock health. The forage produced by hydroponics has high nutritional value and enhanced animal disease resistance. The production speed is fast, and the production cost is low, which can stably meet the needs of large-scale breeding.

What are the applications of hydroponic fodder?

The hydroponic fodder container is a hydroponic fodder system. Soak the seeds in a tray, and after germination, spread them evenly on the tray. Wait quietly for a few days, and you can harvest them. The height of the harvested fodder is about 18cm, and the moisture content is very high. The irrigation time and temperature inside can be controlled by computers, and we can directly control the entire interior systematically.

The emergence of hydroponic fodder will bring agriculture and animal husbandry to a new height at the same time, and hydroponics will play a very important role in the future development.
