    I am mixing corn, wheat, millet, oats, roasted soybeans, barley and BOSS. I grind it all into a "rough grind" to feed my fryers.
    Anyone have any thoughts on this? Also, how would one go about getting a nutritional analysis on this mix?

    Is it cheaper to do it this way,? If your getting whole grain cheap.. might be worth it.. if not..it's probably not more nutritional then regular feed..
    You would have to look up the nutritional values..weigh the feed and caculator it..then figure that out..

    I get most of these grains from local farms very cheap.
