Forever Feed Technologies (FFT) has announced an investment coalition of fifteen leading dairy and beef producers from California, Texas, Indiana and Michigan to accelerate the development of its Automated Sprouted Grainâ„¢ (ASG) technology and complete the world's largest enterprise-scale on-farm feed mill. The first FFT Feed Mill is currently under construction at River Ranch Dairy in Hanford, California, with the goal of saving billions of gallons of water and significantly reducing the climate impact of cattle feeding.

The coalition includes prominent agricultural entities such as River Ranch Farms, Bar 20 Dairy, Producers Dairy Foods, Grimmius Cattle, Wreden Ranch, Hollandia Farms, Central Valley Meat Company & Harris Ranch Beef, Rancho Teresita Dairy, Associated Feed & Supply, Red Triangle Oil Company, High Roller Dairy, D&J Dairies, de Jong Family Farms, Prairie View Dairy, and M.F. Rosa Dairy. Collectively, these members feed over 500,000 head of cattle annually and are known for their innovative approaches to agriculture and sustainability.

Jack de Jong, owner of River Ranch Farms and co-founder/CEO of Forever Feed Technologies, expressed his satisfaction with the coalition, stating, "Our investors are some of the leading producers and businesses in agriculture and represent the forward-thinking innovators needed to help solve the major challenges of water shortages and the climate impact facing our industry."

Steve Shehadey, owner of Bar 20 Dairy, added, "We are excited to be joined by this esteemed group of innovative ag leaders. At Bar-20, we are always looking to reduce our environmental impact, and adding FFT feed mills to our operation will complement our sustainability efforts."

Brian Coelho, President/CEO of Central Valley Meat Company and Harris Ranch Beef, highlighted the shared benefits for the dairy and beef industries, noting, "Having both dairy and beef operators join the Forever Feed investment coalition expands FFT's ability to tap into our expertise as they develop the most dependable and sustainable high-volume feed mill in the world."

The Forever Feed Mill aims to grow Automated Sprouted Grainâ„¢ (ASG) year-round, such as wheat and barley, to improve animal diets and productivity while saving resources like water, land, and fuel emissions. The first mill is expected to begin operations in the fourth quarter of this year.
