  1. I have an off grid farm and wonder how much power does the pump use and how often does it run per day? Also, how long do the heavy duty trays last with constant use? Also, I imagine in my 66’F space I might need a 7 day cycle. Do you think that is a reasonable assumption?

    Nice video and helpful numbers to see if your system might work for us. We are looking at getting 12 pigs this year and this system might be the right size for them since they will also be in four 12′ x 12′ pens moved daily eating grubs, roots, grasses etc – plowing our fields to help transition our shrub land to crop land.

    Any answers to these questions would be helpful in determining if your system would work for us.

    1. Hi David,

      I run mine 4 times per day for 15 minutes. The largest system (18 tray) uses 25 watts per hour. The heavy duty trays last a very long time. The only issue I have had with them is the edges will chip if you get them really cold and bang them on something.

      You can easily tweak the cycle by presprouting a longer or shorter time. You are not actually going to want tall grass for pigs. They prefer it just barely green. In fact, I don’t grow my Fodder to the green grass stage at all anymore.

      I hope this helps. Please don’t hesitate to contact me with any other questions.

  2. I watched your youtube video and it says you use wheat. I didn’t here how much grain you put in each 1020 flat to get the #15 of fodder? I am thinking of using barley because I can get it organically and for a reasonable price. Concerns?

    1. Hi David,

      I put 5 cups of grain in each tray. That is roughly 2 pounds. Barley works as well, but be aware that it needs less water than wheat and does have more of a tendency to mold due to the hull on the outside of the grain.
