Barley seeds can be used for human or animal consumption and is very nutritious and packed with vitamins and minerals. 

 

Many people grow fodder for their animals, such as cattle, horses, goats, sheep, chickens... and even your cat. 

 

You can grow Barley in our fodder trays, or the professional microgreens trays.

 

Recommended Growing method

  1. Soak two cups of barley seed overnight in water with a cap full of vinegar or hydrogen peroxide. The vinegar/hydrogen peroxide helps to stunt mould growth
  2. Spread out the seeds in one of our fodder trays or microgreens trays so it covers the bottom of the tray evenly. Trays should have drainage holes to prevent excess water accumulating in the tray, which could lead to mould.
  3. Use a mister to water 2-3 times a day, making sure that the seeds are moist and not soaked. 
  4. You can cover the tray with another tray or other cover during the first 3-4 days. Introduce light after the 4th day so fodder turns green
  5. Barley seeds germinate very quickly in a room-temperature environment and you should be able to harvest within 7-9 days

 

You can now feed the whole fodder including roots to your animals.
