2006 - Spent Grain for Hogs or Pigs

Sent: Tuesday, November 07, 2006 11:51 AM
Subject: Re: Spent Grain for Pigs or Hogs.

Over the last 16 years, Steelhead has had several farmers who took our grain. One tried to feed it to piglets, I believe at 100% of their feed, and all the piglets died. The nutrient value was too low. I've heard it should never be 100% of the feed, and that at the very least alfalfa must be added. However, don't trust my word on it...

I recommend you contact your nearest agricultural university or extension program. If they don't know the exact ratio of spent grain to other feeds, they either can find out from other state's schools/programs, or they can test the spent grain and tell you what other feeds you'll need for each species of animal.

Cheers, Teri
