Those in the business of animal rearing might consider aquaponics as a long term money saving option for feeding their livestock. Fresh and green almost always outweighs any other type of foodstuff in the health stakes.
Grass fed cows, for instance, provide a superior milk. 100% grass fed cows milk is richer in omega 3, vitamin E and beta carotene as well as apparently having a superior taste.
Certain Parts of India will struggle to feed cows fresh grass year round, however fast-growing aquaponic grass can solve this problem whilst also reducing the risk of contaminated feed.
Aquaponically fed cows mean the milk produced could be marketed as organic and ‘100% grass fed,’ which could just be a gap in the Indian market in attracting a more exclusive, health conscious clientele.

Check out this video, which features some very happy animals. The grass in the video is grown hydroponically, but we would love to see the addition of some fish tanks to make it even more sustainable. The grass grows in just 7 days, and is surprisingly economic once the system is installed.
