As we have tried to get a good understanding of how the fodder can be substituted for a TMR (Total Mixed Ration), we are beginning a new series of tests.  For this test we will do a side by side comparison of 4 different additives to the water for the fodder. The first tray will have Barley planted with our normal watering.  The second stray will be the same, except we will mix the water with some manure water from a local Dairy lagoon.  The third will use standard Hydroponic fertilizer solution 2-2-5.  The final will use a aeroponic product BEYOND™ All Natural Plant Amendment.  
We will be testing for nutrients a growth as we start this test.  Check back regularly as we post our results.
