 Crush Your Feed Costs with Energrow Banner

Energrow’s oilseed pressing system helps farmers CRUSH their feed costs.
The easy way to make fresh, home-grown, high-quality meal + expeller-pressed oil, right on the farm. The fully automated, turnkey CRUSH-Pro is easy to set up and run 24/7. Cows love the meal, and we’ll buy back the oil

SAVE THOUSANDS EACH YEAR
Energrow’s award-winning oilseed pressing system saves farmers thousands of dollars each year on feed costs, replacing 75% or more of your purchased protein with nutritious, highly palatable Soyex™ soybean meal. Farms with a 75-head dairy save more than $15,000 per year on average, with the system paying for itself in less than three years, and then many times over. 

Plus, Energrow guarantees a market for the cold-pressed soybean oil: For every tonne of soybeans that you press, you can make approximately $60 for the oil you extract. We pick up the oil in 1,000L totes, and send you a cheque! Or keep the oil to offset your diesel usage on the farm. How much will you save?

FRESH, PALATABLE HIGH QUALITY PROTEIN AND ENERGY
Soyex™, the expeller-pressed soybean meal made by your CRUSH-Pro oilseed pressing system, is a consistent and palatable feed that your cows will love. It’s freshly pelleted, and ready to feed in a top dress, TMR or robot rations. Soyex™ is typically fed at around 2-3kg/lactating cow/day and can replace over 75% of your purchased protein. Need help adding Soyex™ to your cows’ diet? Contact our nutritionist. Energrow presses also process canola, flaxseed and other oilseeds.

EASY TO SET UP, RUN AND MAINTAIN
The fully automated Energrow oilseed pressing system is the most user-friendly, efficient and reliable oilseed pressing system on the market. Get crushing within a couple hours of the press arriving at your farm! Energrow makes crushing simple so you can continue to focus on running your farm. 

An Energrow oilseed press can make up to 900kg of fresh pressed soybean meal per day.  That’s enough to feed over 300 cows for only $5 of electricity. You can run your system a few days out of the week or run multiple presses if you need more production.

“It takes us basically 2 minutes to clean the press, get the sediment out of the sift, shake it out and then we walk back out for 24 hours.”

“It’s easy to operate, very easy to set-up and fairly maintenance free.  If I have seed in the tank it’ll run 24 hours a day.  It’ll operate while I’m sleeping or taking deposits to the bank!"

“We did a trial and we found that not only did we save on feed costs, our cows came up 15% in milk. Rather than just sell our beans to the local elevator and buying back the feed, you can make the feed yourself and save money – it save everybody more money. We’re currently selling our oil to a local feed mill, but as fuel prices rise we expect to use the oil in our tractors."

Jersey and Veal Farm in Lindsay, ON

"As far as why we went with the Energrow System, I just wanted to take back a bit more of our ration in house, have a bit more control of the cost of our ration.  I believe that it has reduced the cost of our ration, we were previously having our own beans roasted, plus the income from the oil.  It's hard to say what impact it has had on the cows, we seem to be changing something all the time, but I will say that I think it has had a positive impact on butterfat levels and has reduced feed costs.

Dairy Farm in Spencerville, ON

"We custom press soybeans and sell oil and meal.  (Burning my oil) cuts back on emissions and nice in enclosed areas, the soybean oil doesn’t have that sharp diesel fuel smell anymore. It’s easy to operate, very easy to set-up and fairly maintenance free.  If I have seed in the tank it’ll run 24 hours a day.  It’ll operate while I’m sleeping or taking deposits to the bank!"

Cash Crop Farm in Listowel, ON

"I wanted something I could supplement my fuel bill with.  I like the ease of the operation, easy setup and buying local! Support’s great, they’re just a phone call away and they can walk you through any problems."

Cash Crop Farm in Chesterville, ON

"Our butter fat right now is 4.05 and our protein is 3.3-3.4 so it’s marvelous! It’s our own product and I’m proud to use our own product! It takes us basically 2 minutes to clean the press, get the sediment out of the sift, shake it out and then we walk back out for 24 hours.   We’re on the right track to reduce costs and this product is what’s going to make it happen!"

Dairy Farm in Casselman, ON

"We use soybean meal from Energrow. It is an 'economical' source of protein for our dairy goats. Our milk production and conception rates have increased noticeably"!!

Dairy Farm in Newton, Ontario

"We like the soybean pellets as another source of protein. We find these pellets to be higher in fat than (solvent extracted) soybean meal and also very palatable. Thank you!"

Dairy Farm in West Montrose, Ontario

"If farmers want to survive they are going to have to try some of these things"

Dairy Farm in Newton, Ontario

"After consulting with my nutritionist, I came to the conclusion that it is more economical to use the Energrow byproduct (expelled beans) than using roasted beans."

Dairy Farm in Atwood, Ontario
