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!

I put a Tablespoon of flax seed into each bucket of feed. 3 1/2 pounds of feed per bucket, 1 Tablespoon of flax. You get to do the math yourself.

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.

Quote: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.
