Fodder systems    (Posted Thu, Oct 11 '12 at 04:54 UTC)

I have been reading about these and wondered if anyone is using one and how you like it. And the best place to buy one.
Thanks, Patsy

Been wondering about them myself, Sounds like a lot of expense still to me, I raise organic grain and any farm of any size is going to go through a lot of grain still. Then I have to buy a "system" and have a dedicated room for it. I'll still feed hay. But I know that hay is pretty expensive in some parts of the country.

If you make your system , I think the expense is low. Barley seeds are what most people sprout and I don't think that is too pricey. The nutritional value of the sprouts is do much higher than regular grains
I bought a small greenhouse and have it set up in my garage. Still got to buy seeds
If you are on FAcebook. There is a fodder group . Lots if questions answered there

www.farmtek.com

They are an Iowa company (also NH) and we are going to visit there soon to check out this system and a couple others. They also have a lot of helpful videos.

I am building my own, I bought a small greenhouse and have it set up in my garage and I will use a space heater to keep it at 70'. I have trays and I have sprinkler tubing I hope to set up..
Farm Tek is just way too expensive..
If you are on Facebook there is a fodder group and lots of files on how to set up.
Finding a source of barley is what I am trying to find right now.
