    the pig feed i got my pigs isn't getting completely digested. i bought the dumor hog feed from tsc. i noticed that there is alot of undigested grain in the fecal matter. is this affecting the feed conversion ratio? should i soak the feed over night to make slop?


  2. honestly I think It would help in digestion. I buy pellets and don't have a problem with that. What I did want to say as an example is I know somebody that gives them powder feed because it helps them get more out of it.

    They cannot digest fully grains which are not milled and will lose 25% or so out their tail ends. I can't imagine a pig feed not being milled, though.
