Does anyone make their own feed instead of buying it?

If so, what do you grow to put in it?

I use homegrown Ear Corn, Oats, Barley, and roasted Soybeans. Run it through my grinder mixer. Add minerals. A nutritionist came up with the amounts of each per ton
of feed. I use it for finishing as well as maintenance.

Yes. Also use ear corn as a base, ground in the feed mill with concentrate per the co-op's recommendation. When have any barley is a nice addition. Oats are good too.
Probably cheaper the way turklilley does it with soybeans and mineral instead of a bagged premade concentrate tho

No matter where people go, sooner or later there's the law. And sooner or later they find God's already been there.
