I went to the feedmill I usually buy my chicken feed from and ask the guy who decides the feed mixes why the other feedmills pig feed has oats in and what it's benefit is. He said "It is generally only usedfor a gestating sow or lactating sow as they need a higher amount of roughage in their diet." I then made the comment "Then in other words the pigs I'm feeding out won't finish out as quickly if fed a ration w/ oats?" He said "That's correct." Soooo, today I learned something and saved $.85/100lbs of 14% pig feed. Also, one can feed safeguard pellets to pigs to worm them and it DOES make a DIFFERENCE in their rate of gain(worming)!! It was also a lot easier/cheaper than ivomecing them! Thanks Uncle will!!!
