does anyone mix their own feed and if so would you please post. Im not really wanting layer feed.
I dont do soy as I believe it is the root of all evil, LOL
My standard recipe for 100 lbs
cracked corn 15 lbs 9% protein (.20)=3.00
field peas 25 lbs 25% protein (.70)=17.50
crimped oats 20 lbs 14% protein (.30)=6
whole wheat(red hard variety) 20 lbs 14% protein (.30)=6
sunflower(at least half black) 20 lbs 19% protein (.70)=14
The #'s in ( ) are my cost per pound. The number after the = is my cost for that ratio in 100 lbs. I live in Eastern TN and so your cost may vary. I'll post my corn free recipe below and another one I am going to experiment with in the spring.
Corn and Soy Free. 18% Protein
Rye 10 lbs 14.5% protein
field peas 25 lbs 25% protein
crimped oats 20 lbs 14% protein
whole wheat (red hard variety) 20 lbs 14% protein
sunflower (at least half black) 25 lbs 19% protein
There are quite a few discussions on other threads here on BYC on mixing your own feed, fermenting feed, growing fodder, etc. Just use the search bar after you get into feed forums
