I'm still pondering about getting set up to grow fodder from sprouted wheat. My understanding is it is a high protein, high energy feed and can potentially replace ones grain requirements. I'm wondering, can it replaces ones alfalfa/ legume needs? Or just reduce them? The reason I feed alfalfa is for protein and its high calcium to phosphorus ratio, mostly to balance the grain which has an inverted ratio. I have not tested my pasture yet, but we have a lot of legumes, especially yellow clover that the goats eat. And when we have pasture, my goats do t eat as much alfalfa pellets. They just dot want them as much. So it would seem I could certainly forgo alfalfa when feeding forage inthe months we have clover on assuming I don't have to feed grain? What about when feeding grass hay? From what I've been able to find, Bermuda is usually about 2:1 calcium to phosphorus. Or, if I could get a local hay with so w clover mixed in I would think that would cushion things well? Of course, ideal would be testing the hay, but I'd need more barn space to buy enough to last a while to make it worth it, is think. Alfalfa is just not very efficient to use in my area, it doesn't grow or store well here and I'd like to eventually find a way of feeding that relies more on local feedstuffs, especially ones I can grow myself.
