A fairly new way of feeding animals, a fodder system allows the grower to feed the entire plant and roots. The fuller plant provides more nutrition and is naturally balanced in protein, fat and energy.
Fodder Rule of thumb is “2% of the animal’s live body weight of fodder per day.” One pound of seed can produce eight pounds of fodder. Can be fed to cows, horse, goats, sheep, pigs, rabbits and chickens.
Recommended Fodder Seed
- Extremely respectable for forage
- Six-row barley
- Medium size kernels
- Good lodging resistance
