Animal Protein for Pigs?

Postby BK9954 » Fri Aug 18, 2017 9:41 am

Got a great line up on daily fried chicken for my pigs. We debone it and feed them the chicken and breading. Animal protein is okay correct. They are also on a diet of distillers corn grain, crushed corn and fresh fruit and veggie trimmings.

Why debone it?

My thoughts only, don't bet the farm on them. KT

Some people know people, who know people, who aren't very nice people and you could get a visit from them someday. So be good people.

They are hogs, they'll crush the bones. No sense in going through the extra work.

Whether the chicken is fried or not!

At one time, I had a hog pen adjacent to my chicken pen. Long story short, the hogs had 'rooted' a good sized hole along the fenceline, big enough for a chicken to fit through it. Every now and then, a chicken would fall through the hole, start to pace the fenceline and one of the hogs would grab it and eat it! :shock: :lol2: Yeah, I changed locations for the hog pen. :lol2: Those jokers ate at least 20 birds before I figured out what was happening.

I don't know . . . . . . . .I wouldn't take a chance, I'd debone it and remove the skin if it were me.

Hogs are scavengers, it's their job to clean the earth of waste, it's what they are built to do.

When we had hogs, we would feed them dead chickens (we live on a commercial broiler chicken farm) and filleted fishes and there isn't any single bone left after the hogs cleaned up.

Yeah I know my wild hogs eat anything just never heard of piG farmerS doing it. Wasn't sure if it affected flavor or meat quality. The protein content is a great make up for what the slop doesn't have. They eat every scrap.

We've never fed ours meat not going to start either. I have found a diet all my customers love the meat so I wouldn't change it. Plus I just personall won't feed mine meat.

I knew a guy who trapped a lot of muskrats and bought muskrats in the round from school kids. He had a window in his fur shed that faced a pig pen. The muskrat carcasses went out the window and was the biggest portion of the pigs diet.
One winter I had some pigs that I fed boiled beaver and barley. They grew great but were sort of a mean bunch. I don't think you would have wanted to trip in their pen.
