FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Question: We believe that we may require several ANVARI 7 machines. What are your thoughts on linking several ANVARI 7 machines together for the collection of the harvest?

Answer: In our opinion, this depends on the feedlot setup. we can accomodate for any configuration necessary. For example, we can have 4 ANVARI 7 machines feeding into one conveyor belt that automatically distributes to feedlots.

 

Question: Can we stockpile the harvest or store it?

Answer: For storage, the fodder needs to be dried, either sun dried or machine air dried. The fodder can then be baled or pelletized and stored.

Note: A typical standalone ANVARI 7 does not include a drier, the baling equipment or the pelletizing system.

Question: Could the ANVARI 7 system experience fungal attacks?

Answer: This matter has been given careful consideration during the ANVARI 7 system development stage. As a result, a natural fungicide has been added to the the ANVARI 7 system which will help combat any fungal issues.

Question: What happens to the quality of the crop if we store it for a 1 day or more?

Answer: If you intend to store the crop for more than 1 day, it needs to be dried. This will prevent the future fungal attacks whilst maintaining the original nutrient levels.

Question: Would you allow the sun to shine in if your system is in a hot country? Does temperature effect the product?

Answer:
Natural sunlight improves the quality of the product. So we encourage the benefits achieved from this. We need to use solar energy to run the air conditioning to ensure the temperature does not exceed 38ºC.

Question: What happens to the crop during a drought?

Answer: As ANVARI 7 system uses a nominal amount of water per day, it is not impacted by a drought. This means the farmer who has an ANVARI 7 system would not have to sell his livestock at a discounted price or slaughter and bury them during a drought.

Question: What happens to the crop during a severe frost?

Answer: ANVARI 7 system is not impacted by severe frosts. So, the livestock of the farmer with an ANVARI 7 system would not lose weight due to the shortage of feed. In addition, their health will not be put at risk due to the abundant supply of highly nutritious feed produced by ANVARI 7 system during the frost.

Question: I am a farmer working on my own farm. Will ANVARI 7 system help me increase the number of cattle that I am able to have on my existing land?

Answer: Yes it can. Every ANVARI 7 system can feed 140 cows per day. The footprint of each ANVARI 7 machine is 6.0m x 32.0m. So, subject to the law of the land and the recommended guidelines for space needed by cattle, you may consider a land size of 3,000+ m2 for 140 cows. Hence, ANVARI 7 system allows you to significantly increase the number of cattle that can feed on your land.

Question: How complex is the logistics associated with ANVARI 7 system?

Answer: The ANVARI 7 system does not require a lot of logistical coordination. As the ANVARI 7 system would be placed on your farm, the 640kg of high quality fodder that it produces per day do not need to be transported to your farm.

Question: We appreciate that feeding on nutritious fodder would result in a healthy cow. Have you conducted trials to ensure the animals are healthy and gain significant body mass and muscle feeding on fodder produced by ANVARI 7 system?

Answer:
Feeding on fodder produced by ANVARI 7 system does result in a healthy cow and significant increase in muscle and body mass. The ANVARI 7 system has been seen to expedite the speed of weight gain by the animal. Once slaughtered, the meat contains significantly less water. Hence, pound for pound it contains more meat.
