Anyone happen to know if you can feed horse feed to piglets?

Thanks all.

I feed horse feed to my pigs all the time...its not the cheapest method of feeding but it works....and they will eat it right down

Uncle George always keeps a few pigs and he's tight as they come. WWith permission, he walks through the neighbors orchard and picks up dropped apples and fruit, he walks the corn fields after harvest and even gets old produce and bread from the local gocery store. He got a half ton of seconds from a candy factory and fed that too. A friend of his works at a big production line bakery and brings him a 50 gal drum of cakes and cookies every week. I'm surprised them pigs don't die of diabetes before slaughter day.

My retired cousin, who used to have a big farrowing operation, once told me, "You can't hurt a hog" when I asked him if it was OK to feed something-or-other to our pig. If it's OK for horses, it'll do fine for pigs... just not the most efficient thing for growth.
