2.9 tons of fodder beet to be precise. It was weighed on a weigh bridge.
My job last Sunday was hand balling them off a very large trailer into the yard or haggard if one uses old farming terms.
This is a food supplement for the pigs 🐖 along with their buckets of ration,
The big pigs devour the fodder beet and need none of it chopped or sliced. I feed the small pigs small fodder beets and the bigger ones I chop with a spade.
Smallholding farming can be expensive but it's good to give your livestock a varied diet. Especially when we will be eating some of them.
Anyone buy or grow fodder beet to feed to their pigs or other livestock?
