Shelled / Whole Corn
« on: May 28, 2009, 02:31:23 am »
We are raising our second round of pigs.  They are currently 13 weeks old.  We were given a bag of shelled/whole corn from a local feed store.  It has a hole in the bag and wasn't selling.  Can we feed this to our pigs?   We have stuck to standard feed.  Thanks  :pig:

You can feed it, and watch it come out whole at the other end.  Unless its crushed it has little feed value.

Lol, was going to say the same, but you beat me too it! On the plus side they adore ground maize.

Ditto with the last two posts!

We got a bargain through the early part of this year, oats and although they did the same "in one end out the other"
our pigs loved them, bottom line we now have little pockets of new growth in various unexpected areas of our land!

We had a goose who was free range and adored tomatoes.  We had tomatoes everywhere for years.
