Also you are using base malts which are malted with maximum starch by a company that has been doing it for years.

I do not mean to discourage you from trying it though. The rewards are greater than the savings for DIY projects.

I really like toasting my own malts. If you're able to pick up a sack or two of 2-row malt, it's really all you need in order to create a huge range of beer styles. However, this is far different from malting feed-store barley.
Toasting an already malted brewer's grain, is something that is simple enough for the average homebrewer to be able to do in their kitchen. Turning an unmalted animal feed-grade sack of barley into something with the same properties as quality brewer's malt is a little more complicated, if even possible.
Long story short, malting your own barley could be a fun experiment, and it's something I'd like to try eventually, but if you're going to try, start with good quality barley. If you try using feed, I think you'll just be disappointed.
Either way let us know how it goes if you end up trying something!
