Home Made Fodder System

Free range poultry

If you have animals and want to give them the good stuff and can’t let them free range ie like chickens, this is a great way of setting up a cheap fodder system he uses barley seed in this and I know many people are making this and feeding it to their cows, goats, sheep and other critters in a small farm. Sometimes commercial feeds can get to be quite expensive so if you have a place like this guy uses an old shower to grow his. There are other methods that you can use with seed trays and I will go into that in my next post.

I plan on finding a bag of seed to start mine for this purpose. My chickens I cannot let them run all around too many critters like foxes and other predators, so we built a chicken tractor for them. Fall is upon us and soon winter so this would be great for a supplement for any animal.
