Yes, when I had hogs I just fed the whole ears and let them shell it themselves or eat it all, whatever they wanted, just threw the whole corn in the pen with them like in your picture. Now I have some steers that I grind the cob and all,mixed with ground oats and alfafa. They like it very much and seem to do well on it. I add supplement in too. To have it come out mixed in the barrel I just alternate the ingredients that go into the mill in small amounts at a time. I do shell the corn before grinding that goes to the chickens.

Gramps always said, had to shell the corn before grinding for the pigs. So I always have. But I'm going to try grinding cob and all,. I'll see if they'll eat it or not. You're mixing ratio is about the same as mine. Like you said, works just fine.

Like you said, you are doing it for a hobby and freezer meat, so if they dont gain as fast on what you feed em , wont matter as much to your operation. The big thing would be to find cheap or even free feed.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see
I don't think pork from the store has the flavor it used to have. It's my thinking that when all pork producers are concerned with is fast gain, or gain per cost of feed, the quality suffers. I realize they are in business for as much profit as possible, and might do the same if it were me. It may also have something to do with the faster gaining breeds, I don't know.

For several years, I bought a hog from a friend that raised just a few and sold them to individuals and took them to one of the local processors. I didn't buy them at 210-220, but had them fed to about 265-275... much better flavor, but gain is not as efficient when the hog gets bigger. Then the guy had the nerve to die and I couldn't get my meat from him any more.
Up to 1955 Dad fed out about 350-400 hogs a year, but when he downsized the farming he sold feeder pigs at about 40#. Now almost everything is BIG producers.

Thats pretty much what I did too until about 10 years ago. My hogs were older than most market wieght ones, and heavier. Processed at the local meat market. I fed them anything I could get my hands on that was cheap, even put a barrel at the local bakery for the old bread and stale donuts. That was really good meat.

You can add water or milk if you can find it cheap to the ground feed made with the cob and all, it makes a nice mash that they will eat up real good. When you grind cob and all the feed gets a little dry and even dusty sometimes depending on how dry the ear corn was.
