Hello. For the U.K. folks who may not know, We are talking about yellow corn, maize. Looks just like sweet corn you eat but field/feed corn isn't sweet. It is left to dry in the field and the harvested and used for feed. It is edible when gathered while still young and tender, it just doesn't have the sweetness. I enjoy both. I have done some work on a farm here in the U.K. and heard the term "corn" used when talking about other feeds.
Just as an aside. When we were raising show steers your feed mixture was also a closely guarded secret. Adding the corn is a little like protein to people in that like eating high calorie and high carb food when it's really cold out. It can also be tough on their kidneys so getting the mix right is important. Well I passed on my knowledge to my daughters when they got started. I usually mixed the feed but had been really busy doing a lot of OT at work so I told my oldest to do it. Well turns out she couldn't read my writing scribble and "guessed". REALLY hot August week in Tx., well above 100F all week. Along about Thursday I get a phone call at work from my screaming daughter saying something about her steer. I rushed home and found a 4 month old $2500 steer laying flat on the ground with his tongue hanging out!!! I still owed $500 on the darn thing!! Luckily I went to school with the local vet who was only 3 miles down the road. We scratched our head for a time and then the daughter brought out some feed for the steer. Even I could see the problem. It threw him off a bit cause we had raised steers when we were back in school. He KNEW what the symptoms were telling him but he was pretty certain I hadn't made that mistake. Luckily plenty of cold running water got him back looking chipper again. He took 3rd. in show and the daughter made $1500 after expenses for her college fund.
The daughter DID get a letter from the owner of the company who bought the steer. He was served at the company BBQ and apparently EVERYONE raved about how tasty and tender the meat was. Now I'll bet you were wondering how my rambling was going to get back on subject!!
I'll shut up now! Keep Smokin!
