I feed brewers mash to a steer once, great gain at 27% protein levels. Almost to much marbling to the meat, plus was was feeding cracked corn , and wet cob.

My experience with grocery stores and expired produce is the stores are hesitant to give out their expired produce to the average person.  The stores want someone that can get the produce on a long term regular basis that is reliable.  They generally do not want to throw the produce out but most do because itís a hassle of dealing with flakey people and that is usually why they say they don't have any to give out.

As others have said visit your local Franz bakery outlet.  Ten bucks for a cart of old bread is a smoking deal in my opinion, a cart for me is usually about 40 loaves.  I have an old fridge I keep the bread in and its lasts longer that way.

Thanks everyone for the information, we got the pigs today. Pigs will be gone before apples are on or that would be awesome.

Got any pics of your pigs?

My level of sarcasm depends on your level of stupidity...

Gonna take a long shot in the dark that any info given on the thread from peoples experiences could be of help for people in the future... plus I mean who doesn't want to keep raising bacon seeds every year and try different things they find out to perfect the flavor and size of their pigs!
