Follow our series on starting and maintaining a sprouted grain system for natural livestock fodder! It’s like providing pasture for your animals without needing the pasture and at a fraction of the cost. Enjoy!
We have sprouts! I took these pictures yesterday, but I had a late night so I didn’t get to post them. Today I actually see some green poking out from the mass of seeds! The other weird thing is that the volume of seeds has easily doubled without having sprouted yet. I can’t wait to weigh the originally 1.16 pound tray in a few more days. I have pretty high hopes for this project.
Just like yesterday and for every day that this fodder system continues: I soaked, drained, and put new grain in new trays to keep the cycle constantly going. My previous trays as well as the new trays were watered twice throughout the day.
Look at that root system! If any of you have younger kids, this would be a fun science-y project to do for sure. Test different soak times even.
