Barley sprouts grown in our SproutPOD is a super feed that you produce yourself for less than feeding hay and grain. A POD is a transportable insulated HYDROPONIC growing chamber that has an irrigation system, an electronically controlled temperature and humidity and lights to enhance growing.
Day 1 Barley seed is put in a tray and placed in a POD and on Day 6 a fresh, living sprout mat is ready for feeding to your livestock.
Farmers and ranchers are taking a significant financial hit because of high feed prices for their livestock. With our SproutPOD, these feed costs can be reduced by 45% or more.
Break free from the Natural Drought Cycles
Drought is a part of the normal production cycle. Dealing with these dry periods, decreased feed supplies, and increased feed prices needs to be part of your overall livestock management plan. Livestock have been sold, or relocated in record numbers; however, there are alternatives. Contact us today and let us demonstrate how we can empower you to provide a reliable source of nutritional feed for your animals regardless of what mother nature may throw at you.
About Barley Sprouts:
Barley is used because it is the most nutritional cereal grain, and is a cost-effective feed and a very stable crop. The Sprouts are packed with antioxidants, vitamins, proteins and other vital nutrients; and are harvested and fed fresh every day in a soil free highly digestible sprout mat.
Because the sprouts are fed as a living plant, they still contain the exceptionally vital enzymes that are killed in hay making process or any other process for dry grain storage or feeding.
These enzymes prevent the sugars from becoming toxic to any animal that eats them, and thus the sugars are used as healthy energy. The sprouts’ enzymes also act to help other feeds become more digestible thereby releasing more nutrients.
