FODDERBOX

IT'S A NO BRAINER

NUTRIENT DENSITY

Our hydroponic fodder produces highly nutritious sprouts rich in vitamins, minerals, and enzymes. This dense nutrition can enhance animal health and productivity.

CLIMATE PROOF

Fodderbox produces fodder year-round, regardless of drought orexternal weather conditions. This ensures a consistent and reliable feed supply, reducing dependency on seasonal fluctuations.

SPACE EFFICIENT

Fodderbox requires far less land area compared to traditional methods for growing forage crops.

It's literally a field, in a box

LOWER FEED COSTS

Long-term operational costs are lower compared to purchasing traditional feed, resulting in significant savings for farmers over time.

IMPROVED

FEED CONVERSION

Hydroponic fodder is highly digestible, which can leads to improved feed conversion ratios. Animals require less feed to achieve the same level of growth or productivity, resulting in further cost savings.

NO PESTICIDES

Fodderbox is a contained unit that requires no pesticides, making it a perfect choice for organic farms, and reducing the cost of pesticides on traditional farms

Auto-FodderBox and Mini-Auto-FodderBox.

Performing all growing functions including seeding, watering, lighting, harvesting, cleaning and re-seeding, to consistently and predictably produce fresh premium sprouted grain without daily labour.

Sprouted barley, wheat or oat grass improves performance while reducing GHGs. 

 

Recent US research show increased DMI, rumination activity and nutrient digestibility alongside methane emissions reductions of 24% in dairy and 48% in beef cattle.

When you sprout grain in a FodderBox system 1 kg of grain becomes 6 kgs of sprouted grain that feeds like 3 kgs of grain.

There is no waste, as both the roots and the shoots of sprouted grain are fed directly to livestock every day.

In an Auto-FodderBox, 1 ton of sprouted barley, wheat or oat grass comes out of a 40’ container on a conveyor belt ready to feed, every day.

 

With a Mini-Auto-FodderBox, 60kg/day or 90kg/ day come off a conveyor belt on a 2x1.5m machine ready to feed every day.

FOUNDER 

Ella Goddin

Sometimes to think outside the box, we need to think inside the box.

 

"Having launched Fodder Box Ltd. with the support of Enterprise Ireland, my goal is to increase the profitably of livestock farming, while directly reducing livestock emissions, by integrating hydroponic fodder production into our grass-based system."
