    There is one about an hour from here. Has anyone bought any feed from Tyson? If so what did you buy? I can't find feed mills near me am looking for a less expensive option. OMG my turkeys eat a lot plus I have a bunch of chickens too.

    The Tyson mill most likely makes feed for only their poultry and animals. I doubt they could even fill and close a feed bag.
    Government regulations are also very strict about the labeling of bagged feed. It just isn't a business they are in.

    Don't waste your time by asking. Those mills are NOT retail, they producer thousands of tons of feed every week for their own livestock.

    Those types of mills make 22 tons of one kind of feed at a time for delivery to large feeding operations.

    They also add antibiotics and other chemicals ( arsenic) to their feed. And I agree I highly doubt they sell to individuals.
