Used Brewers Grains - Advice Needed Please?
Thank you for reading about my problem. I have 50 British Saddleback Finishers that are kept outside, free range, in pig arks. I have access to spent brewers grains a mixture of malted wheat and barley. While I understand that these grains are usually fed to ruminants, it is tempting to feed them to the pigs. However, I do not have any idea of the nutritional value in terms of protein etc., Can anybody advise me about the nutritional value and also advise me whether it is possible to mix in additives to bring up the protein level to say 16 to 18%. Also can you advise as to what would make the grains more palatable to my snotty little friends? Kind regards and many thanks. Eddie Marshman, Lydiate, Liverpool UK.
