Les contact Andersoncob it's a 419 exchange, look under Taxidermy trade for the grit size. commercial mink farms may have an extra bag, runs around 30$ bag It will go well with that tumbler you are going to make.
Bblwi we use to feed out Holstein steers about 1500 when corn was cheap it was about 98 percent 2 percent pellets then as corn went up we put distillants in it with earlage and changed the pellet type but ours almost always finished at 1425 to 1450, and over 10 years we averaged 95 percent prime and choice. Most of ours came from Texas the worst were from Indiana ohio area, the Amish would raise them in barns not the huts we had pneumonia probelms from there one group came from Idaho for us it was just to far on a truck for the calves. The Wisconsin calves at the time cost to much because of the veal market at the time. Iím looking at getting some gain probably about 120 head on a self feeder.
Thanks guys, I'm of the opinion if it ain't broke don't fix it, but didn't know if there was some serious advantage to hoops I wasn't aware of. Boards and stapling has been working well for me. Put up another beaver this afternoon without even thinking about a hoop.
I have a story from the only time I went fly fishing. Long story very short. We found a deep hole in a stream in Colorado full of trout . Hole about the size of 2 pickups. Little fish at the top deeper u got bigger the fish. Anyway couldn't get them to look at a fly so we put some salmon eggs on a hook. Buddy dropped his line in the water and 20 fish headed for it. He caught one. After that not a single trout would even look at a salmon egg.
