Sprouts, otherwise known as fodder, are cereal grains grown into cereal grasses. These tender, young grass shoots are very similar to fresh spring grass which is generally considered as one of the best livestock feeds. Sprouts can be grown from virtually any cereal grain including barley, wheat, oats, rye, and others.
How sprouts work
Sprouts are grown from seed into feed 7 days in a temperature controlled building. Once mature, the grass blades along with the root mat are harvested and fed to animals as part of a feed ration. Sprouts can be integrated into virtually any feed system.

Mold & Mildew Free
Did you know that 1 ton of dry barley seeds comes with around 100 billion mold spores. A wet, warm environment will cause those spores to grow with the feed. FodderTech is the first company to address this issue head without strong chemicals. FodderTech is proud to offer the Mold Guard Technology with all FodderTech designs.
