    looking for recommendations for a grain mill. We have started to produce our own feed and need to mill it.

    Something to chop up straw and something to grind up oats and corn.

    I don't want to brake the bank, only feeding about 100 mouths a day.

    No preference. I just figured it would work for you. Lots of folks seem to prefer a Wonder Mill for homemade flour, etc. Straw choppers are even more expensive than grain mills. Personally, I would just run my lawnmower over it, hit it with a hedge trimmer, or even throw it in a Rubbermaid tote and beat the heck out of it with a weed whacker.
