Feeding your own livestockwheat_field_1

If you raise your own animals and choose to grain feed them, finding a non-GMO source of grains is important.  If you are a motivated animal owner and live in the correct part of the country, you could theoretically grow your own feeding grains.  The number of animals would also dictate if this is truly a possibility.

You have options

When it comes to animal feeds, another division that is becoming more significant is those that look for feed without soybeans.  With the recent discoveries of soy being a pseudo-estrogen, there are some that prefer to leave it out.

If you are looking for soy-free animal feed, Scratch and Peck has several animal varieties.  The most common positive response for this feed it that “it looks like real food product.”  If you have ever fed your animal processed food pellets you can understand what that means.  They make chicken, turkey, pig and goat feed.  Chicken feed is available on Amazon.com, and is specialized for chicks, broilers and laying hens.
