If you’re considering a grain roaster for your farm, you probably already know of some of the benefits they offer. But if you’re still not completely sold, understanding the investment the machine makes to your operations can make all the difference. While grain roasters certainly can be an investment, grain roasters can benefit your farm tenfold and pay for themselves in a short amount of time.
Why invest in a grain roaster?
1. Your animals will immediately tell the difference in their feed
When you roast your grains, the feed becomes more palatable to your animals, allowing them to eat a quality feed in lesser quantities, lowering the feed costs, and encouraging them to gain healthy weight.
2. Gain renewable bedding and manage manure
Did you know that our different roaster designs are capable of more than just roasting grains? In addition to our grain roasters, we have a roaster option that can be used to roast litter, offering a solution for manure and bedding headaches. This is an environmentally friendly way to utilize both your manure and bedding that greatly reduces toxin run-off in your field and reduces the amount of waste on your farm.
By recycling your bedding, you save trees, reduce SCC, slow the spread of disease on your farm, and offer your cows a luxurious place to rest.
3. Protect your cattle from the effects of bad grain
Cows are actually at risk of many negative health effects when they consume bad grain. These can include:
- Poor breeding
- Depressed feed intakes
- Poor milk production
- And health complications from toxins or mold
By grain roasting your feed, you can avoid these health risks and keep your cattle healthy for the long haul. Beef cattle can go to market up to 2 months quicker when consuming flame roasted grains, and dairy cattle produce better butter fat and increase their conception rate.
