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!
Ugh! Power was out for about five hours. No surprise there! We are pretty used to it around here as it goes out every time it snows heavily. And with about 14″ inches in just two hours, I would call it a heavy snow.
I started transitioning all the animals onto the sprouted fodder today and it was well received! Everyone was given 1/3 of a daily portion and I hope to raise it to a 1/2 portion in a week. Steady and slow wins the race.
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 2-3 times throughout the day.
