Jerry Brunetti

Jerry Brunetti is a world famous livestock feed expert who has been conducting trials specifically with milking cows fed on a range of feed. We present Jerry's full speech below (approx. 25min) in which he outlines results from his trials.

Key points of Jerry's speech

• Grains contain mostly starch. When fed to a ruminant these starches begin fermentation which leads to D-lactic acid in the rumen. i.e. causes an acidic environment in the rumen that reduces the efficiency of the digestive process.

• Hydroponic sprouting barley on the other hand contains many sugars. Sucrose, fructose, fructans, glucose, lactose and maltose are all present and produce more energy, more efficiently for the animal.

• Mineral and vitamin levels in hydroponic sprouting barley are significantly increased over grain, in addition they are absorbed more efficiently due to the lack of inhibitors present in grain.

Dry Matter vs Fodder

Ruminants and grazing animals were designed to process fresh grass...

Why Sprouting Fodder?

Fodder enables the digestive system to process food more efficiently...
