VANCOUVER, BC , July 13, 2023 /CNW/ – CubicFarm® Systems Corp. (“CubicFarms” or the “Company”) (TSX: CUB), a leading local chain agricultural technology company, announced that its ruminant livestock feed subsidiary company, HydroGreen Inc. (“HydroGreen“), has commissioned a HydroGreen DGS 66 machine at Golden Rule Dairy in Arizona. This milestone marks a significant advancement in delivering optimal nutrition to dairy cows using HydroGreen’s innovative technology.
Located in Elfrida, Arizona, Golden Rule Dairy is a family-owned and operated Jersey cow dairy. Guided by a commitment to providing their cows with the finest diet and selecting high-quality inputs, Golden Rule Dairy has eagerly embraced the HydroGreen solution. The commissioning of the HydroGreen machine will revolutionize the nutritional quality of the herd’s feed, ensuring improved health and performance outcomes.
CubicFarms’ HydroGreen technology offers a groundbreaking solution for the dairy industry. By producing fresh, nutritious forage in a controlled environment, HydroGreen machines ensure a consistent and high-quality feed source for dairy cows. The HydroGreen system optimizes water usage, reduces reliance on external feed sources, and provides dairy farmers with greater control over their herd’s nutrition. HydroGreen’s technology enables daily harvesting, resulting in up to 365 harvests annually, surpassing the typical two harvests achieved through traditional farming methods.

HydroGreen produces Automated Vertical Pastures™, a type of smart farming equipment that uses a unique process to sprout grains such as wheat and barley, in a controlled growing environment to efficiently produce a high-performance feed ingredient for livestock 365 days a year. HydroGreen’s equipment is simple and easy to operate and performs all growing functions automatically, including seeding, watering, lighting, harvesting, and re-seeding, which allows livestock businesses to feed consistent nutrition every day with minimal labour. When balanced correctly in the ration, HydroGreen sprouted grain modifies animal digestion which enhances productivity and reduces the amount of enteric methane emitted in ruminant livestock.
