Fodder Feeding Solutions?

I'm one of those ad clickers when I check my gmail... :o) I happened to click on this one when it said feed your horse for $.70 a day...

Smart Farmer Magazine May June issue 2007; FODDERsolutions Media

I like the concept... has anyone seen this?

I've not heard of it but watched the video. Very interesting

Isn't it? It looks like its an Australian development... I don't know if there is anything like that here in the U.S. I'm sure the system costs a lot up front. However, I would pay a pretty penny to not have to load hay anymore... :oD

That wouldnt work in colder climates unless that storage thing was well insulated. I wonder if they offer different grasses, or a mix.

I sent the company an email with a ton of questions... I will post their response! I'm very intrigued.... It would be so nice to #1 not have to load hay or feed anymore and #2 not have to worry about quality and price!!! In Texas, you never know what the hay is going to look like! Not to mention even commercial grains go through dips in "quality".

There was a dealer in Texas too. If its a long ways away maybe you could become a dealer and get it for cost

No kidding, starline. I am usually in the same boat as you with hay. That is a very fascinating concept. It says that they produce in both extreme heat and below zero temps so I have to assume that it is very well insulated. I am anxious to hear their response.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

The website says the storage unit has a HVAC build it. I am starting to really like this idea. I would like to see a variety of grasses available though. I think the only offer barley/lupin sunflower for horses.

I havn't heard back from them yet... I wonder how much this thing is going to cost. I just convinced my hubby to cover my round pen.. I don't know if I could squeeze out a few more thousand...

I'm thinking like 8-10k for the unit. It has heating/a/c, and lights plus you have to think about shipping and assembly.
