I work at a distillery and have an opportunity to get several THOUSAND pounds of corn because it got wet and is now moldy. I've read that mold is not good for chickens or anyone - I should just walk away from this shouldn't I???

Mold is not good for chickens... or anyone. :sick (but you already noted that)! :D

And corn has only about 7% protein with little vitamin and mineral benefit.

You MIGHT consider fermenting what you can salvage.

MOLDY... though, better to walk away than risk the birds for a little savings. :old

It's really hard for me to see things go to "waste". But risk verses benefit is always a weighed factor. And sometimes waste is the right choice. :barnie

This is hard for me too because it is sooooooo much corn! But for such little benefit in protein, I don't see the risk being worth it.
