U.S – Forever Feed Technologies (FFT), a pioneer in sustainable indoor feed growing systems, has inked a deal with Dr. Greenhouse, Inc., marking a crucial step towards transforming the landscape of animal feed production.

The agreement entails the design of climate controls for an expansive indoor feed mill set to revolutionize feed production at the River Ranch Dairy in Hanford, California.

The feed mill will harness Automated Sprouted Grain (ASG) technology to cultivate nourishing feed for over 5,000 dairy cows. Leveraging state-of-the-art climate control systems designed by Dr. Greenhouse, the facility aims to optimize feed output while minimizing resource consumption and environmental impact.

Anticipated to commence operations by late 2024, this innovative endeavor holds immense promise for enhancing both the health of the dairy herd and the sustainability of feed production practices.

Jack de Jong, owner of River Ranch Farms and Chairman of Forever Feed Technologies, expressed confidence in the transformative potential of ASG-supplemented feed.

“Research and controlled trials have shown that ASG feed not only enhances herd health and productivity but also mitigates methane emissions,” he noted.

“Through our partnership with Dr. Greenhouse, we aim to streamline feed production processes and reduce reliance on traditional farming methods, thereby ushering in a new era of sustainable agriculture.”

Dr. Greenhouse, renowned for its expertise in Controlled Environment Agriculture (CEA) indoor farming, brings invaluable experience to the project. With a track record of over 180 successful indoor farm designs worldwide, Dr. Greenhouse is poised to create a cutting-edge facility that will redefine animal feed agriculture.

“River Ranch Dairy and Forever Feed Technologies have embarked on a pioneering venture that has the potential to revolutionize dairy production. By harnessing advanced climate technologies and innovative growing practices, we aim to set a new standard for indoor feed production,” President and founder, Dr. Nadia Sabeh, emphasized the significance of the collaboration.

Nathan Bastow, Senior Vice President of Engineering Services at Forever Feed Technologies, stressed the critical role of automated growing systems in optimizing feed production efficiency.

“With Dr. Greenhouse’s expertise in climate control engineering, we are confident in our ability to deliver high-value ASG Feed consistently and efficiently,” he affirmed.
