Sprouting Your Own Animal Fodder

  • June 14, 2014 · 10:00 AM
  • Eigrioch Farms

At this class we will talk about the whys and hows of sprouted grains, seeds, and legumes as animal fodder; where fodder is simply referring to food that is given to animals rather than what they forage for themselves.

We will talk about:

Step-by-step sprouting procedure
How much sprouts to feed
Benefits to feeding sprouted grains – nutritional and cost

We are by no means nutritional experts, but we have been feeding our animals with sprouts for a while now and are completely blown away by the possibilities and the benefits we are seeing nutritionally and financially.

You can research fodder systems online and will see the variety of systems available for purchase; some costing upwards of $15,000. We will talk about how for very little out of pocket money you can design and build your own system to suit your livestock’s needs.

You can listen to Jack Spirko's "The Survival Podcast" Episode-1033- Fodder Systems and Brian Newhouse on Permaville. http://www.thesurvivalpodcast.com/fodder-systems-newhouse-on-permaville. To listen to the portion on sprouting you only have to listen to the first 14 to 15 minutes.

You can also listen to a speech given by Jerry Brunetti on the Dietary Needs for Livestock at: http://www.h2ofarm.co.uk/Science/Jerry_Brunetti.aspx 

Class cost is $15 per person for the class alone or $30 if you would like a copy of our "Sprouting Your Own Animal Fodder" book.

    Hello Everyone, A couple of items to note:

    If you have already paid for the class, you are all set. If you have not paid for the class, please email us at [masked] to confirm your RSVP as there is limited space still available.

    All parking is on street parking. If you are able to park in front of the house, please park perpendicular to the white fence so we can fit everyone in to the spaces we have available. If you require close parking, please email us so we can make arrangements for you.

    Before, during and after the class, we ask that you do not use any recording devices or cameras.

    One last thing, we have found that people really want to touch the growing fodder. Please refrain from touching any of the seed or growing fodder. We’ll explain more about that at the class. If you have any questions between now and the class, feel free to email us. Thank you and we look forward to seeing you all on Saturday.
