I intend to go into pig farming and while doing my research I noticed feeding takes up majority of the expenses. I found and attended training on Hydroponics and they claim to drastically reduce feeding costs. I want to get 10 two month old piglets and see how long and how much it takes to get them to market weight for farmers choice. Has anybody else here had any experience with Hydroponic Fodder? Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Yes it is, but you can grow barley sprouts through the hydroponic method which you then feed to the pigs. A 15kg tray grows in 7 days.

Everything seems legit on paper but I was hoping to find someone with some experience with it. Maybe a farm I could visit & learn from before I start.

Heard about it some time back. Although I have never known someone do it.However, I have always thought some information is purposely left out i.e. the cost of plant nutrients. I would suggest that you first practice growing one tray for about 1 month just to get a feel of the costs involved and also to gain some real experience. I do know that it is possible to make your own plant nutrients cheaply.

The company I'm working with sells the nutrient at 600 bob. Their smallest fodder unit measures 4m × 3m × 3m and it cansupposedly feed about 70 pigs. I want to experiment with 10 but should it be a success I will increase the number. I will also be feeding a few Kienyeji chicken to see how they'll react.
