We specialize in livestock feed solutions while our parent company delivers commercial-scale human food production. We’re a division of CubicFarm® Systems, a local chain ag-tech company founded by farmers. Founded in 2015, the company’s mission is to create technology to successfully feed our changing world.
Our HydroGreen System technology for growing nutritious livestock feed was invented by Dihl Grohs for his ranches in South Dakota, Utah and Missouri. Dihl was first inspired to develop the concept of a low-maintenance feed growing system during his time spent raising cattle in Idaho. Limited precipitation in that area made supplying feed for cattle a challenge, exacerbated by competition from other dairies for quality feeds. With the HydroGreen System, Dihl achieved his goal of creating a straightforward, sustainable land substitute for producing feed in a manner that preserves farm profitability.
As HydroGreen started expanding, the focus wasn’t only to build fodder growing machines but to invent a whole new way of growing nutrition for animals. Today, our HydroGreen team assists with all aspects of the growing system, from the building design to HVAC requirements, experts will be with you every step of the way. HydroGreen’s team of engineers, manufacturers, researchers, and nutritionists strive to feed a growing world population by providing the best and most sustainable technology that produces the best quality nutrition.
HydroGreen Research Farm
We understand and embrace the need for continuous improvement and innovation in the hydroponic systems we design, manufacture, market and service. This is a big part of our corporate culture. At our research farm near Renner, SD, we are constantly evaluating our hydroponic systems’ performance, identifying ways to make productivity improvements, and testing all these ideas in an actual Hydrogreen system housed at our farm.
In addition to focusing on the productivity of our systems, we focus a great deal of thought and effort on the productivity of the live green feed our systems produce through animal performance research. Our research farm includes animal feeding facilities that allow us to evaluate Hydrogreen in animal diets for a wide range of species and production scenarios. Whether it’s system performance or animal performance, our customers expect us to know. We take that very seriously.
