For those who add DE & Flaxseed to there feed...how much do you mix with a 50lb. bag of feed?? I would like to try this but am not sure how much to add to there bag of feed or do you not mix it??

Thanks for any help!

Recommended inclusion rates, by weight:

DE: 2-5%

Flax seed: No more than 10%

just a little piece of advice...if we're trying to have a logical, academic discussion of feed ingredients and their respective inclusion rates, these things are always discussed in terms of weight, not cups and spoons and buckets.

Sorry if I was unclear as I was only stating the instructions that are on the packaging . I will find out how much 3C of DE weighs

3C of DE per 50 lbs. is only going to work out to about 1.25% and 2C of flax seed is probably around 2%. Both ingredients useless at these rates.
