What is the BioPac'r?
The BioPac’r® is the world's first portable packaging and ensiling system that creates a fermented pesticide-free livestock feed from grass clippings. And by diverting these clippings from landfills, our Grass2Cash system saves turf managers time and resources while helping farmers become more sustainable and profitable.
Grass Clipping Silage™ is like High Octane Grass for Cows!
The BioPac’r® was created for the purpose of diverting waste from landfills, providing livestock a highly nutritious feed and generating a new revenue stream for landscapers, golf courses and other businesses that create and dispose of green waste. And grass clippings are not the only waste that can be packaged and fermented with our revolutionary system. The BioPac’r® can also accommodate vegetable processing byproducts like skins, stems or tops as well as fruit cannery waste such as pulp, skin and peel.
These different waste streams can be packaged in minutes and stored in staging areas where 1-ton bags of fresh biomass ferment within weeks into valuable livestock feed with a shelf life of 5+ years.
The BioPac’r® Team then goes to work to locate local livestock producers who buy your high octane silage, earning you a commodities check rather than incurring a disposal fee.
Why use the BioPac’r®?
The BioPac’r® provides a green solution to the problem of grass clippings simply becoming clumps in a freshly-mown lawn or filler in a landfill, ADC or composting pile. Don't recycle your grass clippings back into a client's lawn, and don't dump them for a fee. Bag these lawn clippings and sell them as livestock feed! With the BioPac’r® grass clipping compactor and packaging system, you can convert clippings into a fermented, pesticide-free, sustainable livestock feed with a shelf life of 5+ years and counting.
The BioPac’r® is 100% self-contained and portable, and it fits into the back of a pickup or can be mounted on a trailer. This grass clipping compactor compresses multiple loads of clippings into an easy-to-handle 1-ton package that measures approximately 4x4x5.
The BioPac’r® also compacts tree leaves, pasture grasses and alfalfa too wet to bale due to rain. The BioPac’r® is capable of compacting forty 39-gallon contractor leaf bags into one cube. This grass compacting device allows turfgrass managers to utilize shorter trailers for their mowing equipment, allowing for safer towing and better maneuverability.
Lawn care crew members can empty their mower bags directly into the BioPac’r® throughout the day where the biomass is placed under consistent pressure, expelling oxygen and excess moisture. At the end of the work day, the BioPac’r® packages the compressed biomass into our proprietary poly-lined Pac'r Bags (sold only to BioPac’r® owners). It's in these unique bags that the biomass ferments into livestock silage that is testing 25% protein and 72% TDN, better feed analysis than the best alfalfa or grass hay and competing with corn as a finishing feed, offering grass finished beef the same flavor as grain finished beef!

What About Pesticides, Fertilizers and Feed Safety?
Pesticide Biodegradation is recognized as the most efficient natural eliminator of pesticides in our environment. Plants, animals and fungi (Eukaryota) typically transform pesticides for biomass detoxification through the metabolism of a broad spectrum of enzymes, bacteria (Prokaryota) and the formation of high levels of lactic acid. Lactic acid decreases the pH inside the BioPac’r® bag to a level low enough that pesticides can't survive.
Land grant universities and farmers have known for more than 70 years that plants previously treated or sprayed with pesticides prior to harvest would degrade and break down during the amazing biological process known as ensiling, also known as anaerobic fermentation.
BioPac’r® silage is currently being fed to livestock In North America and South Africa with complete confidence because these compounds degrade during ensiling. Founder Todd Graus had the privilege of naming this new sustainable feed "Grass Clipping Silage™".
