What pork based products do you all mix into your feed Sim.

Well phase 1 pig starter is about 25% pig plasma, and cost about $75 a bag. They also get quite a bit of blood and bone meal throughout the feeding phase, which is sourced mainly from pig and chicken processing.

Here they don't throw it out just wait for people like me to buy it and feed it to animals. They charge you for it and im ok with that where else can you buy hostess cakes and such by the pick up load for 20.00 bucks :lol: :lol: They take it off the shelves a week or two sometimes before its expired either way the pigs love it.

Sometimes they do also get processing or rendering waste, but it's mostly fat, so not a whole lot.

Advice from a professional.

This is the first thing I thought of when reading this thread!

The second thing was listening to a bunch of old timers at the feed mill years ago talking about chicken eating sows. They said you had to get rid of them because the sows would run themselves ragged once they got the taste of chicken. Couldn't put any weight on them, they'd run it all off chasing hens around.

Landed a gig with a local Mexican produce store. They let me pick up all the old produce every day. Getting it by the truck full. So far they have been the most helpful. This, popeyes chicken, distillers grain and a mix of piG feed and crushed corn is working okay. Crushed corn $5.25 a bag but I don't have to feed to much with all the potatoes and fruit I am getting.

At $5.25 it's just $50 over buying buy the ton of whole kernel corn. And this is crushed fine. I only supplement when I am short on carbs so the price I am paying for corn is the best around. Other places charging $6.50 for whole corn. I don't think the corn is a bad deal.

Look at bread on a dry matter basis and 20.00 bucks a pickup load is not the great deal it sounds like. Once you weigh it you really don't have anything.

I like mixing that with my brewers grain and milk to make my own feed blend. I also mix it with ddg and milk brewers grain. It is a deal for me cause everyone that guys my pigs loves the meat/fat ratio as well as flavor.
