Oldambt Crop Driers
Since 1951 Oldambt produced dried Alfalfa. Two dehydration drums with an evaporating capacity of 45.000 litres per hour means a production of 15 Mt Alfalfa pellets per hour. The production is 35.000 Mt dehydrated fodder yearly. Besides these two production-lines there is a separate production-line for straw products. Grass and Alfalfa are dehydrated from May to November. During this period there is a shift work of five and a half day weekly. 25 Persons are active in the dehydration factory.
Alfalfa and grass pellets
Oldambt Crop Driers contracts yearly over 1.650 hectares of excellent soil for growing Alfalfa. The fresh green Alfalfa is mowed, chopped and blown into containers afterwards.
Alfalfa is dried directly in the drying plant and pressed into 6 mm pellets. These pellets will be sold to the compound feed industry all over the year. They are processed in chicken-, pig-, horse-, and rabbit fodder. The grass pellets go directly to the farmer to feed his own cows and sheep.
