Pig yogurt
[Return to Topics]

I have access to free yogurt and am interested if anyone has experience using it as pig feed and if so, what if anything, do they supliment the diet with? Currently they are on a pasture diet (primarily).

Hey Rurik, check your email.

I've been hoping somebody else with more knowledge would respond. I know of a place near me that feeds yogurt and other food products that are not fit for human consumption. If you don't get an answer soon, give me a holler and I'll find out what I can for you.
My guess is that pigs would do right well on yogurt with little else to supplement. It's just milk and fruit, right?

Yes milk,fruit, sugar, plus active cultures. I know of guy that feeds yogurt to his pigs but only once in a while, and even then it is an addition to their regular food. I would like the yogurt to make up 50% or more of their food if there is no adverse concequence. I have not tried it because it would take some capital upgrades. They only deal in large volumes.

Thanks for any help.

I'll see what I can find out and, hopefully, get back to you tomorrow. Maybe someone else with first-hand knowledge will answer by then.

I don't have 1st hand knowledge so I called my Aggie agronomist neighbor and asked him about it.

He says as long as you give the hogs plenty of dry matter it is good for feed.

He said to consider yogurt as liquid feed and if they don't get some fiber it will scour them, so the 50/50 should be fine

Rurik and Burrhead- This idea looks to have much promise to our war efforts. Especially so if that stuff is fed to pigs that are lactose intolerant. The output from that kind could create the equivalent of an H-bomb for use in Ashcanistan. Let's keep working with this line of thinking! IHank

If we can find and old transport we could build a winder cage so the pig butt sticks out of it up to about it's nable with a slop troft alley way down the center aisle.

If we can't get a flight approval we can stick the butts out the winders on the "Love Bus" and ride them around. Now to figger out how to get the bus over there.

If we put about 40 biting sows down each row we got it.

It might be hard to get the spray jets adjusted right but we could get the spray pattern in a few circles.
