The primary grain used is barley. This grain is full of protein, anti-oxidants, amino acids and essential vitamins/minerals. Another benefit from feeding these sprouted grains is the moisture content. Horses tend to drink ¼-1/2 of the water that they were drinking before being on the sprouted seeds.
DAY 1 – Spread the grain on the trays
DAY 2-5 – Seed 1 more tray a day until day 5
DAY 6 – Sprouting day! Take the tray out and you will have 4-6 inches of vegetative growth. Feed the nutritious sprouts, rince off the growing tray and re-sprout.
The systems cost $5000-$11,000+ depending on how many horses you are feeding.
