The hydroponic fodder is mainly cultivated from barley, which is a highly efficient and particularly nutritious fodder that can be grown in 7 days for feeding animals. Many of our customers have grown this way.
Hydroponic fodder is planted in a hydroponic way, which can effectively shorten the growth cycle of pasture and save land resources. At the same time, it can solve the breeding problems of farmers due to climate and weather. In many cases, it is a good way of growing feed .
Nutrition for hydroponic fodder
Are hydroponic fodder nutritious? Many people are skeptical. They think that hydroponic fodder is a hydroponic method, which is far from the traditional land planting method. For example, if the land is full of nutrients, cattle and sheep may be undernourished if they eat hydroponic fodder. Land planting is Hydroponics is far beyond that.
This kind of thinking is undeniable, and it is indeed reasonable. We rely on the land for food, and cattle and sheep rely on the land for feed, but the fodder grown in the soil is also insufficient, such as the threat of pests and diseases, and is also affected by climate and drought and flood weather. It will also be insufficient.
At the same time, the arable land resources are constantly decreasing, and the use of pesticides and chemical fertilizers not only pollutes the environment, but also makes the feed no longer so natural, and the taste of cattle and sheep is not very good.
Compared with the way of growing fodder on land, the cultivation of hydroponic fodder does not use pesticides, does not take up space, is not affected by the weather, protects the environment, and is also very nutritious. After scientific testing, hydroponic fodder contains a variety of nutrients, which is not inferior to traditional feed planting methods. If it is fed to sheep, it can reduce tooth wear, gain weight faster, improve wool volume and quality, and increase sheep's health. birth rate, etc.
Hydroponic Fodder Planting
The first step is to buy seeds
The nutritional value of different seeds and the degree of love of cattle and sheep are different. The main nutritional content of barley is much higher than that of other varieties, so many people now grow barley feed for hydroponic cultivation.
The second step is planting
For the seeds to grow, they need to be in the associated equipment. The commonly used equipment for growing hydroponic fodder is the hydroponic fodder container
. This equipment is composed of PVC trays, planting racks, water tanks, water pumps, water pipes, copper valves, nozzles, professional circulation fans, dehumidification systems, lighting systems and other accessories.
Only with professional equipment can the seeds be provided with various conditions needed for growth, such as water, light, air, temperature and humidity, etc., and the seeds can grow faster and better. In the container hydroponic fodder system, the seeds can grow into about 20 cm of feed in 7 days.
Calculated, 1 kg of barley can produce 9 kg of hydroponic fodder, the annual net output is about 324-396 tons, and the annual income is about 510,000.
When the hydroponic fodder is mature, it can be fed to animals. In addition to cattle and sheep, horses, camels, chickens, pigs, etc. can eat hydroponic feed. Isn’t it surprising, try it quickly.
