At ClearSpan, we pride ourselves on being the one-stop shop for all your building and storage needs. We not only manufacture your Hercules Truss Arch Building, we provide building options and accessories such as lighting, door packages, insulation and heating, too. However, thanks to our affiliate company, we can go from outfitting your entire building to outfitting your entire operation. Many may have already heard of our affiliate company, but if not, it is my pleasure to introduce you to FarmTek.
FarmTek was founded on the same mission as ClearSpan—to provide the highest quality products at economical prices with excellent customer service. For over 30 years FarmTek has been supplying the agricultural community with more than 30,000 products. Below are just three highly recommended products to aid in your agricultural or livestock operation this summer.
Hello mother, hello fodder
Over the past two years, FarmTek has developed and manufactured a hydroponic feed system for livestock called the Fodder-Pro 2.0 Feed System. By definition, fodder is any agricultural foodstuff used specifically to feed domestic livestock and is classified as food given to animals instead of that which they forage for themselves. It has been popular overseas in the European and Australian agricultural communities for many years, but has recently started gaining popularity within the United States.
With the Fodder-Pro 2.0 Feed System you can produce hydroponically grown, healthy, fresh feed daily for your livestock, horses, poultry, and even microgreens for yourself! It is designed to rapidly produce highly nutritious fodder at a low cost, takes up a very small footprint and requires minimal labor. By feeding sprouts grown in a Fodder-Pro 2.0 Feed System, you will improve the health and general performance of your livestock and reduce your feed costs by 50% or more. Plus, it is the only drought-proof feed option available!
FarmTek’s version of Coppertone®
FarmTek’s shade cloth is a great product used to protect animals and plants from harmful sun and heat during the summer months. It also happens to be a very economical and easy way to control light intensity. Shade cloth is manufactured from a similar polyethylene material as our Hercules Truss Arch Buildings so it does not rot, mildew or become brittle, making it a long-lasting shade option. With both blocking and reflective options, it is available from 30% to 90% densities to meet specific application requirements. Shade is offered in a variety of styles from panels and bulk rolls to frames and houses; FarmTek offers an option for all and can customize, too.
Shoo fly, go fly away
We’re all glad that summer is rapidly approaching bringing with it beautiful weather; however, we’re not glad that it also brings pests. Agricultural and livestock operations are especially prone to pest or vermin infestations. Luckily, FarmTek can prevent or stop pests and rodents from invading your property, whether for use on the farm, in the stable or workplace. Offering a variety of all-natural, environmentally friendly, humane and safe alternatives, they have something for every situation.
Like ClearSpan, FarmTek offers something for everyone and strives to be a solution provider. If you require something for your agricultural operation chances are FarmTek carries it. We’re glad that we have such a reliable, diverse affiliate company to help outfit your entire operation.
