I had multiple squirrel feeders and would get bags of field corn for next to nothing from the local farmers in Columbia Mo, it helped a great deal as they loved the corn.
Another good way to get corn for free is to ask a farmer if you can go through his just cut fields and pick up the cobs and many times whole ears that come out the back of the combine,They,re not as efficient as believed and leave behind a great deal of corn on partial ears and sometimes the entire ear with the husks!I,ve filled up the bed of a pickup in just a couple hours doing this.You still have to shuck the kernels off the cobs but it comes off pretty easily or you can invest a few bucks in a hand machine that will take the corn off really fast.Then you can burn the cobs in your fireplace if you have one.I have great friends who grow corn and have no problems with them allowing this.Just a thought for those who use a lot of corn to feed.
