Fodder system

We're sprouting barley to feed the critters because we can quadruple our amount of feed, for free!  We've been looking at hydroponic fodder systems and it looked pretty easy.  Some are really fancy, with automatic watering systems and shelving and gutters, but we like simple.  Like this one.  Hydroponic fodder system just means throw some water on barley seeds!  We tried it out and will start a rotating set of buckets soon to use all fall and winter (in the greenhouse). 
Since we like these buckets, that means more ice cream for us!!!

Just cut and serve. 
The goats liked the grass and the chickens liked the roots and seeds best. 
The bunnies loved it too.  Matt even tried it; said it was bitter.  No, I don't know why...
