Feed Mills in Indiana?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

I have increased my flock significantly D this past spring and plan on raising a batch of 25 meaties soon as well.  I am tired of paying the $12 @ TSC for a 50lb bag.  I have tried searching the forum, but maybe I'm typing in the wrong words, cuz I can't find anything hu 

Does anyone have any suggestions for feed mills around Indiana?  I'll  be willing to drive, since I'll be purchasing a lot...TIA  big_smile

Im in southern indiana about exit 19 off of i-65 I fed crumbles for a while but like you it got expensive...I switched to laying mash 16% protein and seems to less wasteful amongst the birds at my local feed mill...It's 8.25 50LB bag, although crumbles are about 10 bucks. PM me if your interested in a address and phone number for them. ,

I live about 2 hrs away from you, in Ohio, and I have rural grain elevators all over the place!  Seriously, if the bags weren't 50 lbs, I wouldn't even have to drive to one!  I can get a bag of layer feed for about eight bucks, chick and game bird feed is a little more.  In the winter, I buy ground corn ($5) and mix it in.  Good luck!

I live in Salem exit 29 off of 65 and I cant throw a rock and not hit a feed mill or store.  If you look around it will be amazing how many stores and mills are around.

Hey hunny, what do you think about getting a few chickens?   Hey, how did we end up with 3 coops and 30 chickens?
