Stockfeed Potatoes

Stockfeed potatoes contain good energy and are an excellent source of starch. Care should be taken not to over feed as this may encourage acidosis. Small potatoes produce a risk of animals choking and it is advisable to chop them.

When feeding large quantities of potatoes to pigs it is advisable to cook them first.
