Feeding Sprouts to Sheep & Goats

Fresh sprouts grown in a FodderTech system offer nutritional advantages for sheep and goats. FodderTech sprouting systems allow users to supply appropriate volumes of fresh, spring grass shoots to their sheep and goats for optimal performance.

Advantages for Sheep

Feeding sprouts to sheep offers very dramatic advantages including:

  • Improved wool volume & quality
  • Faster weight gain
  • Less teeth wear
  • Higher fertility rate
  • Fewer parasites

Sheep Testimonial

We grow approximately 1.2 tons of fresh barley sprouts on a daily basis. These sprouts are rich in vitamins and enzymes and they have quickly become part of our feeding regime. Our stock continue to thrive. The birth rates of our flock have increased from around 120% – 180%. I also think that my sheep will live longer due to less wear and tear on their teeth through eating the succulent fodder.

Highly nutritious sprouts produce healthier goats which in turn offer:

  • Higher milk volume
  • Increased fertility rate
  • Lower infant mortality
  • Faster weight gain

Dairy Goat Testimonial

A California Goat Dairy has used sprouts for more than 1 year. The owner, who is an artisanal cheese maker reports:

  • Feed bill halved
  • Milke volumes up 20% – 50%
  • Cheese yield up 40% – 50%
  • Kids nursing on moms are “huge”

Sprouts have allowed me to almost double my cheese production per goat.
