    I am shipping some feed to the middle east. The package will go through extreme heat. What do you think would be the best way to keep it in as good as shape as possible.

    I'm thinking maybe vacuum pack? or I worry that might have it sweat in the bag and mold. Also I use organic so I"m worry it might not ship well at all. Maybe I should buy regular to ship.

    Any thoughts would be great.

    Not much you can do about temps. Just send it. If you are worrying about it sweating in plastic, put it in cardboard or paper, something breatheable.

    taped up in a paper sack, inside a cardboard box. Those newer plastic woven feed sacks breathe too.
