    Blaineiac Chillin' With My Peeps

    Jan 30, 2011
    I had a friend offer me some meaties. He's running out of room and was thinking of butchering some early to make room. He will give me 20 4 week old CX's. The catch is that he wants half of them back when finished (guessing 4 more weeks). Not 10 just half of what make it. He is taking some of the liability out of it. I know they eat tons more from here on out. Is it worth it to get them on these terms? He is willing to give me free milk too. Can I incorporate this with my feed to cut the cost? They will be tractored and currently feeding 22% nutrena meat bird feed. Thanks Blaine
