    I'm taking the hogs out to get butchered on monday and I ran out of soy meal a few days ago. is it a big deal to just have them finish on corn only? I also gave them a few apples for a treat. There wouldn't be issues with digestion only being on corn would there?

    This year we finished our pig out for about three weeks on corn right out of the field and apples. He seemed to relish it (including the corncobs) and he is tasting mighty good.
