Wheat Or Barley For Hogs





Which would be the better grain for me to buy for hog feed; wheat at

$1.30 per hundred, or barley at $1? Would it be worth paying 10 cents a

hundred for rolling, and then haul the grain 8 miles by wagon?



Wheat is only considered about 10 per cent more valuable as a hog feed

than barley, so that in your case, barley at $1 is the cheaper. In

Bulletin 80 of the Oregon Station it was found that crushed wheat was 29

per cent more efficient than the whole grain, and it is safe to say that

barley will run about the same, enough so at any rate to pay the extra
