I have a feeder that has thrown about 100lbs of corn before I got there to shut it off. With all the rain and sometimes the corn was under water will it still be good when it drys up or do I need to rake it up and throw out of pen for the hogs?

It won't be good but they can pick around it unless you just need something to do.

just open the pen up for a few days and the hogs should clean it out ...

Deer will eat it unless its soured. You'll probably be fine.

Leave it, if the deer don't want it the coons or other vermin will carry it off.

I've had deer sucking corn down that was in a muddy slurry.

Corn gets wet on the stalk all the time before it’s harvested and deer still love it.

If you have a lot of activity at the feeder it should be fine.dont expect any regular activity until it's all gone though.

Graham paper just had a piece about water soaked corn. Texas Parks and Wildlife said it should be removed because of Aflatoxin.

My first thought too.

I wouldn't worry about it. I have seen and shot plenty of deer over soured corn and milo for hog bait. Also had many deer accidentaly caught in hog traps baited with soured corn.
