    I've worn out Google and the phone book searching for someone who will mix grain for me in North GA. I'm willing to buy a ton too. Even my local feed stores aren't willing. Is their anyone here in North GA that has found a source for custom feed mixing?

    P.S. here is the mix (Salatin).

    Broiler Layer

    Ground corn 31.5% 30%
    Cracked Corn 19.4 20
    Roasted soybeans 30 31
    Crimped oats 11 11
    Sea-lac 3.6 -
    Nutri-balancer 3 3
    Lime 1 5
    Kelp meal .5 .5

    Hey, we are in north georgia, Ellijay. where are you located? I heard recently about someone who mills, but I will have to retrace my conversations to recall it. Do you have all the grains and just need a miller? Where do you get your grains? Next year i will plan on planting all our own.

    Quote:Hey, I could possibly get many of the grains but I want to support a local mill and would prefer they acquire the grain and mill and mix it. I'm willing to buy in large amounts to make it worth their efforts. With the exception of corn, I think growing your own would be more trouble than it's worth.
