    Oh wait if you are getting the turner too then that's a pretty good deal. Didn't catch the turner part the first time.

    If you go to the Jeffers livestock catalog, the price should be lower and they are probably still giving free shipping on livestock supply orders over $50.

    They area very reputable company and all the livestock raisers I know have used them for decades with no problems.
