Got a great line up on daily fried chicken for my pigs. We debone it and feed them the chicken and breading. Animal protein is okay correct. They are also on a diet of distillers corn grain, crushed corn and fresh fruit and veggie trimmings.
Good to know, I won't waste my time.Jake":f6ct8maj said:
Yeah I know my wild hogs eat anything just never heard of piG farmerS doing it. Wasn't sure if it affected flavor or meat quality. The protein content is a great make up for what the slop doesn't have. They eat every scrap.Muddy":gox3yttv said:When we had hogs, we would feed them dead chickens (we live on a commercial broiler chicken farm) and filleted fishes and there isn't any single bone left after the hogs cleaned up.
Heck I might could feed them wild hog, cooked. I have a ton of those here.Dave":1alvtdng said:I knew a guy who trapped a lot of muskrats and bought muskrats in the round from school kids. He had a window in his fur shed that faced a pig pen. The muskrat carcasses went out the window and was the biggest portion of the pigs diet.
One winter I had some pigs that I fed boiled beaver and barley. They grew great but were sort of a mean bunch. I don't think you would have wanted to trip in their pen.
I know a pig farmer will pick up pet food wastes from my work (pet food industry). We use a lot of pork for dog food and they all go to the hogs.TexasBred":21w6u0jy said:
