Green Planet Group Subsidiary Initiates Final Livestock Feeding Trial

09/27/2018 | 09:01am EST

CONGRESS, AZ, Sept. 27, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NEWMEDIAWIRE – Green Planet Group, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: GNPG) announced today that its wholly owned subsidiary, Healing the Earth Inc. (HTE), is initiating its third and final livestock feeding trial in preparation for a full scale cattle operation at the Company’s Research and Development Center in Congress, Arizona.  Healing the Earth has been operating its “proof-of-concept” proprietary food growing system on the Congress, AZ farm since 2015.  This revolutionary growing system is capable of growing a wide range of vegetables for human consumption as well as animal feed, demonstrating three proprietary concepts: “Fast Track Food” - “Food at Point of Consumption” - “Food on Demand.”  In addition, this unique system reduces water requirements by more than 90% and accelerates normal growing cycles by approximately 300% - all accomplished naturally (no GMOs), using only HTE’s proprietary 100% organic nutrient formulation. 

In December 2017, the Company initiated the first feeding trial in which ten Angus cattle heifers were fed barley fodder grown on the proof-of-concept growing system in combination with hay.  At the conclusion of the three month trial the animals had thrived, gaining weight and exhibiting perfect health.  In June of this year, a mixed lot of range fed cows and calves were fed a similar diet and, once again, the trial results were completely positive.  Ken Bennett, Green Planet Group president and CEO noted, “In addition to the positive feeding trial results, it has been surprising how immediately the cattle have taken to the barley fodder we’re producing.  We had anticipated that there might be a brief period during which the animals would need to be acclimated to the new feed.  Quite to the contrary, we’ve seen immediate acceptance of the new feed at a level that one might consider to be a feeding frenzy.” 

The third feeding trial, which will begin next month, is focused on the practical application of the HTE-produced fodder in commercial cattle ranching.  Bennett explained, “Our goal is to prove that our fodder as the primary element in beef cattle feed will generate a three-hundred pound weight gain in one-hundred days.  That’s the goal of ranchers, so that’s the target we’re aiming for.” HTE is developing a daily feed ration in association with one of the nation’s top animal nutrition consultancies to generate animal health and weight gain.  

The trial will involve nine groups of animals, which will be acquired weighing approximately six-hundred pounds each.  After being fed the HTE fodder-focused daily feed ration for one-hundred days, it is anticipated that the cattle will weigh approximately nine-hundred pounds and be ready for sale to a finishing operation.  Feeding nine separate groups of animals will allow for fine-tuning of the daily ration and will prove that the trial results can be replicated in cattle operations including the Company’s own beef cattle herd to be developed at the Congress farm facility.  Bennett noted, “Even as this trial is conducted, we will be constructing a full-scale growing system facility on our farm.  Upon the successful conclusion of this third and final test, we will begin building our own beef cattle operation.  This will allow us to demonstrate our growing system to prospective customers from around the world and to train them in the most productive use of our unique products.”
