February 17, 2014. 1:00 PM. Sprouting Fodder
Webinar. Sprouting barley and other grains for dairy cows (and other
livestock) is not a novel practice, but has gained more popularity in
the past few years as grain prices rise
and farmers search for ways to maximize their return on grain purchases.
John Stoltzfus, a dairy farmer in Whitesville, NY who produces fodder
for his 50-cow dairy herd, will talk about his methods for sprouting
barley, the problems he’s encountered in his system over the past two
years, and what he’s learned since our previous webinar in 2012. Fay
Benson, an educator at Cornell Cooperative Extension, will discuss the
topic of nutrient availability in sprouted seeds, and how this process
can benefit the animal, as well as minimizing nutrient losses to the
environment. Romi Wilson, a graduate student in Horticulture at Cornell
University, will talk about seed issues relating to sprouting fodder,
including seed quality, germination, and water uptake during the first 6
days of sprouting.Please register ahead of time for the webinar at
