Feeding whole barley to pigs

I accidentally bought a bag of whole barley instead of crushed and was wondering if this is OK to feed to the pigs?

You could try boiling it up.

I've just remembered Mum used to boil up whole barley from time to time - can't remember why though.

Trouble is it's a 25kg bag so that's a lot of boiling Shocked

A little more than usual will probably go straight through them, this can be reduced by a good long pre-soak (> 24 hours), or leave it a few days longer and you can make malt- then it's up to you whether the pigs get it before, or after Wink
