Why do so many add milk to the feed and their is never the mention to add eggs. With the right girls you can get an egg for about 2 .oz of grain a day. So with 1 pound of grain you can get about 8 eggs. The eggs are quite high in protien and pigs love them. That one pound of grain will cost about 6 cents. With the cost of a balanced ration at 11 to 12 cents And the cost of grain at 6 cents. Would it not make sense to feed the pig 4 lbs of grain and 1 pound of eggs (8 large). So the cost of the feed 5 lbs would be about 30 cents instead of the common price of 55 cents. So in the raiseing of a hog the requirement of approx. 700 lbs of food. the savings could be quite high. 700 lbs X .11 = 77.00 dollars. 700 lbs X .6 = 42.00 dollars.
