We are looking for a wheat grinder/roller to grind/roll wheat for 3-4 pigs. On ebay we found a whole bunch of inexpensive grinders shipping out of Ukraine. Around $300 shipped and they fit over a 55 gal barrel.

Does anyone have any experience with them? Assuming they do the job, we aren't sure about parts if they break down.

We have both of the grinders from premier one. We made the smaller one to fit over a garbage can. We mostly grind oats. Did ok but we needed something bigger so bought the bigger one (you do need to change out the plug because it it made for European plugs). For the bigger one we have it built on a table that it will fill up two garbage bins at a time. Though the prices have gone up a lot since we bought ours.

We found our dairy cow did much better on the ground oats then the whole. Pigs just were feed ground oats (and sorghum during the winter) and did great.

Those look pretty cool, and a bit more expensive, but Premier1 is such a great company. Thanks for the idea!
