Finally Fodder

Due to a slower growth since last winter, we started looking in other feed options. The feed mill did say they had a number of complaints this year of slower growth and are contributing it to the wet growing seasons we’ve had lowering the carbohydrates in the corn. So, I finally got the urge to build a fodder system. It will be trial and error as temp and humidity has to be controlled else mold will grow, but fodder is one of the most complete nutritional diets animals can get. What is fodder? Basically week old barley sprouts grown on trays without any soil. First day the seeds are soaking today, hopefully in a week we have fodder.
