    It cost me around 11 + tax where I live. $8.99 is good price.

    I've been trying to come up with something my self .I buy scratch feed from the farmers COOP and there has been a lot of whole corn in it .If you could find a hand ringer from an old washing machine that mite work if you removed the rubber on the rollers. but it seems like a lot of work to me. or some type of hammer mill. they make those to hook up to a tractor. I wish I could afford one.
