A further update about the project in late April of 2015 in the Fodder Blog
Norm, one of the people involved with the Fodder project summarizes the project's status as of April 2015 in the Fodder Blog
We made some changes to the trays and racks so they would drain better and had more individual control. There are some new pictures at Fodder Photos.
We are beginning to post data related to temperature, humidity and other factors that affect the growing of fodder. This should help other understand what conditions are needed to grow fodder hydroponically during all seasons. You can see that data on the tab named Fodder Data.
New people have been put in charge of the project. They will lead the data collection phase of the project. We'll be reporting on this website such important details as inside humidity, water temperature, inside temperature, outside temperature and economic factors. Please look at the tab called Fodder Blog to see the progress being made.
We'll provide in the future videos and other media to help show how to do a fodder system for dairy goats.
