    Just picked up the first 1000 pounds of feed for my pigs. I used this same feed the last time I raised pigs ( feed store actually pulled my old orders to find mix) having only done this a couple times , I am not sure if there is a. Egged or more efficient feed mix available. My pigs grew well and I think on schedule (100 days from feeder to market weight of 225-275)

    But thought I would share the mix and get opinions since the local feed coop said they never put liquid molasses and the mix I have has 25 gallons in 1000 pound mix.

    I assume that is the brand name of a mineral mix.

    I think that to be true actually can't read it myself so planned to call and ask the feed store to remind me this morning

    That is a great price for feed. I pay twice that amount. What is the second line item?

    Your mix is ok and you are happy with the outcome. Me I never used Milo though. More Soybeans would be good Protein but Hogs like Corn better.
