I'm currently raising chickens, ducks, turkeys, and pigs (I'm super new to pig raising). We have LONG, HARSH winters, and I'm looking for a more cost effective way to keep my animals healthy and happy in the cold months. Im looking into cracked corn. I also will be running a fodder system, and raising mealworms. I'm thinking between those things, they'll get the nutrition they need and if I buy bulk corn, my feed cost will be overall lower. Any thoughts? I also plan to put my pigs on the same system (maybe not as much fodder, since they get more table scraps). Also, I was wondering if there is a shelf life for cracked corn? Right now I am buying store bagged flock and hog food.
