Students experiment with growing sprouted grain to produce localized feedstock for domesticated livestock such as cows, goats, sheep, horses, chickens, rabbits and pigs. Small-scale production of short-term microgreens and specialty crops using industry-standard methodology. Students gain experience in all stages of the growing process, from seed to post-harvest, learn to identify challenges such as mold, fungus, and poor seed quality, and design a fodder-growing plan for production.
