QUESTION
I have access to cheap sugar sweepings (factory discards). I mix my own feeds and I was wondering if I can use it in my chicken feeds. Can you help me with information about maximum inclusion levels, and ingredient data.


ANSWER

You could use sugar sweepings, but at a small amount (10-15%). I don't know the ME or protein level. Get a sample and have it analyzed.
