Fun with Fodder

I am experimenting with a tray of sprouted oat fodder for the goats and chickens. 

Tractor Supply didn't have barley or wheat and I didn't have time for a trip to Family Feed so oats will have to do. 

This morning I rinsed the oats then soaked them in water with a tiny bit of bleach for ten minutes. I rinsed them again and left them to soak in fresh water. 

Tonight or in the morning, I will spread them out in a tray to germinate. Hopefully in a week or so I will have a tray of yummy oat grass for the animals. 

If they like it, and it works well, I can increase the size of my little fodder operation.

  1. I need to get to the feed store and get some barley. I might try to make some with something I have on hand first! Looking forward to your progress report :)
