Energrow at Empire Farm Days

SENECA FALLS, N.Y. — Processing oilseeds on-site to produce feed and fuel makes sense. Among the scores of vendors at the recent Empire Farm Days, Energrow showcased its new on-farm ES3750B Oilseed Pressing System. The system processes oilseeds such as soybeans, canola, flax, sunflower seed, rapeseed, linseed, sesame seed, mustard seed and similar seeds. “There’s a lot of high costs farmers are facing and this guarantees the price more by pressing their own,” said founder Jasmin Hofer. “Instead of selling soybeans and buying them back as feed, they’ll know what the costs are. They’re not just reducing the cost of the feed, but they’re extracting the oil to cut their fuel costs.” Plus, farmers can choose when they want to process oilseeds.
