I raise pigs, but I haven't been able to find what I'm looking for, so I'm open to using another livestock calculator if I can adapt it. I'd like to find a tool/app/calculator/software/anything that will let me plug in the numbers to create the optimal set up. Like if you have 9 pigs you need X-lbs of food which will cost roughly $Y amount. I know the numbers will never be exact and that's fine. Any recommendations?

Look up some of the universities in your state. Find the ag department on their website and you should find a wealth of information. Here is a good example from Iowa State University.

Perfect! Thanks so much for assistance. Those calculators are great and should help me make smarter decisions moving forward.
@MartyR, how unexpected, I would never think to check there. Thanks for the tip.
