What should I feed my hogs?
« on: May 02, 2012, 05:34:30 PM »
Hi I have a several hogs that I am growing out to sell or butcher.  I am feeding them a 14% swine feed right now.  But does anyone know of a good swine custom mix feed or something that works good for you?
Thanks in advance.
I want to spend the rest of my life alive!

Corn soybean meal and vita/minerals. Up corn as you get closer to slaughter. That's what I feed and have had good luck.

Oats and powder fat mixed with water.
Being busy does not always mean real work. The object of all work is production or accomplishment and to either of these ends there must be forethought, system, planning, intelligence, and honest purpose, as well as perspiration. Seeming to do is not doing. Thomas A. Edison

We would get shorts from the local feed mil. then we would mix them with water in a big trashcan and let it ferment. They eat it really well and it is inexpensive. Hope this heps! <beer>
