fermented grains

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I read here somewhere about feeding meat birds fermented grains, the poster said he did this in 5 gallon buckets, but now I can not find it again....can someone tell me about this and how it works out....looking to raise my 50 rangers on something cost affective so I do not have to raise my prices for customers,   (they do have a small pasture area about 20x20)

It was in the thread titled "Free Cornish X - Worth It??".  I also started a thread on it when someone in that thread asked us to stay on topic.

I also would like some more info.

 

I did a quick google search and found a site talking about feeding fermented grains to pigs... it sounded like they just covered them in water for a few days and waited.  I couldn't find any mention of a starter culture.

 

I'd love to know what type of grain- just oats?  A mix of something?  I guess I'll swing by the feed store tomorrow and see what they have.  I guess I could do corn and oats mixed, it just seems lacking nutritionally to feed as a mainstay diet.

Sadly, soon to be chickenless :(
