LOLr.h. in okla. said:Purina has a starting feed and a finishing feed program for the pig raiser. However a lot of people like to switch over to chopped corn the last few weeks to give them a good flavor. I'm finishing a pig out right now with chopped corn and left overs from a bakery which consist of biscuits and gravy, cinamon rolls, cupcakes, dinner rolls, loafbread, etc. etc. It's gonna be a Honey Suckle Pig!
Okay, it just reminds me though that I need to go to the library. It would also be very good right now to know some Viet Namese who raised pot bellies!Laura Jensen said:I've read that too much oats will give you soft pork. Potatoes too. Hmm, now where did I read that? Oh yeah. I think it was in "Raising the Homestead Hog" by JD Belanger. He gives you the maximum percentages you can feed of "soft pork" foods without ill effect. Don't hold me to it, though. I don't have the book in my hands, and it could have been somewhere else.
