    I never met a donut I didn't like, but I'm not a huge fan of KK. However, "Southern Maid" or "Shipley's Donuts" are at the top of the pack around here as far as I'm concerned.

    I'm sure the pig food isn't made purely out of old donuts, just a certain percentage would be part of the ration. It certainly would be a caloric enhancer; they'd get the protein from other sources. The feed mill procurement people are always looking for and substituting available low-cost ingredients to meet their nutritional targets for some particular ration. If the stale donut deal fell through, they'd switch to something else similar. I think feeding pigs stale fruitcake could be considered cruelty to animals.

    Since I do this for my company 3 days a week, here's the short answer.

    1. First option is to PAY to throw it away.
    2. Second option is to SELL it to a place that will use it.

    Simple huh? Now, when this first started they would not pay you for the scrap. But they would deal with it for free. So even though it was not a net gain, there was no loss either. Later, with competition coming, they started paying. Now I'm sure it's not a huge amount, but the company is not having to pay to get rid of the waste. And they pay me about $75 for 4-5 hours of driving and pay for the truck.

    The scrap comes in on specially modified cargo trailers. I haul roughly 40,000 lbs of scrap bread waste each trip. We do this 7 days a week, occasionally twice a day. They collect from nearly any dry food producers, chips, crackers, cereal, bread, and others. They also do grease traps. The product is dumped, some in package and some gets separated depending on the packages. It's run through the cooking process. Then open top cargo trailers haul it off to the farmers at about 40-50,000 lbs at a time. They also do rail cars.

    Even though hogs will not refuse anything, I would bet the feds have started regulating it to the point that it has to be precessed. I've known small hog farms that just dumped food in the troughs and let them go for it.

    This is the company we haul our product too.

    I was wondering who was going to say it first. Come on folks, it was just so obvious! Lets don't be so politically correct that we can't laugh at ourselves.

    I would of rather somebody made a play on the word stale, like a stale joke.

    Interestingly enough, if a bear or family of bears become a public nuisance and become dangerous to humans (as defined by Colorado DOW), they are trapped for relocation. One of the most effective baits is STALE DONUTS. Some other baits are effective too, but apparently bears just cannot pass up a stale donut.

    A tear rolls down my eye as I ponder the fate of these poor donuts! Our FOP lodge had T-shirts printed up for a fund raiser one year. The front showed a donut shop in the moonlight with one police car parked in front of it. The back of the shirt showed the rear of the shop with a cat peeking into a dumpster, and five police cars parked hidden from public view.

    Here in MN we can't tell a stale one from a frozen one, as long as the coffee is strong and hot.

    I'm very selective about picking my "poison".

    I call donuts "lard pills" and avoid them, but I call anything made from pork "gourmet" food. Bacon: crisp, yummy.

    I woked at a food plant for a very long time and all of our non packageable food was sold as cattle food. Our feed plant by product went to make dog food as well...
