Fodder Folly

Fabulous root growth!

Fabulous root growth! The animals eat everything- root, grass and all.

Biscuits

I cut the mat into “biscuits” with a serrated bread knife.¬†

Cutting fodder (root side up)

 This is a perfect example of what happens when you disturb the rooting barley grains after about day 4 (I spayed this tub too hard with the nozzle).

Fodder "biscuits". I find I need to cut them up into mouthful size bites ahead of time otherwise they waste alot trying to "tear" them apart by flinging them around. I do this work ahead of time to save fodder from being dumped in the dirt and left to rot.
