Next on the menu: 5 tons of fish.

[Hi Natures Harmony Readers. If you'd like to see my comments and the background for this fight, click here after you're done reading. The laws on what is legal to feed to pigs vary from state to state; Whey, a byproduct of cheese production, is a prohibited feed in Missouri, for instance. Tim feeds whey to his pigs. I feed fish to mine. Both are legal feeds in our respective states. Not sure what his point is. Fish is found in many animal feeds. Fish meal, fish cake, fish oil, or just plain fish. ]

This is a mixed load of fish; mostly salmon, but cod, pollock and other types of fish. I don't know what a flathead is, but theres 15 cases of them in this.  Maybe a catfish?  11,000lbs or so. 

It's packaged in a variety of ways -- fillets, whole round fish, and everything in between.  Some is portioned for serving purposes -- not really a fan of the 4 oz individual portions, but hey. 

I'll probably rent a chipper tommorow and grind a bunch of it up for the chickens.

Well I have to say... they may not be 90% PASTURE, but your animals are definitely on a 90% SCAT diet. Good work!!!
