McCafferty Ranch Simmental-Angus graze on six-day-old barley fodder, which is high in protein, and produces the micronutrients and macronutrients needed to create beef with a higher Omega 3 ratio. The barley fodder is a healthy feed, which Megan Gondeiro says translates to healthy beef. Robots move trays in the McCafferty Ranch's hydroponic fodder barn. The use of robotics has drastically reduced the number of manual labor hours needed to operate the fodder barn and uses dramatically less water than any other system available, says Matt Woodworth, Integrated Fodder business partner.
