    Seminole Feed used to make their own. I do not know if they still do. See if they have a web site. They are in Marion county.
    Good luck and let me know what you find out.

    Not many mills left to find in North Florida I'm afraid.

    Hillandale in Lake Butler is the big one that I know of.

    Seminole Feeds in Ocala says they make poultry feed on their website. I've never seen it in any of the local feed stores, but I may have to go down to Ocala to see if they're carrying it in their stores.

    I don't know of any other mills that make their own feed in the area. You might check out Columbia Grains in Lake City. I don't know if they also mill feed but they are a grain supplier.

    3830 Northwest Brown Road
    Lake City, FL 32055-7508
    (386) 755-7700

    Couldn't find a website for them in the quicky search I just did.

    Seminole makes a medicated chick starter and a layer mix called Egg Maker. I usually get the chick starter from them, but I do make the trek to Lake Butler to get their layer mix instead of Seminoles; even with the trip I save money.

    Quote:Thanks Halo, I'll try to contact these folks tomorrow.

    I heard back from standard feed and they said they don't make any custom mixes. They did recommend 2 more places for me to try. Howland feed in Live Oak and Central states in Lake City.

    I guess I'll be trying all three tomorrow.

    Make it 4 places - - Columbia Grains in Lake City too.

    Thanks everyone - - - I'll keep you updated.

    If you can find a mill that will custom mix in less than ton lots let me know. Our local mill that would do this closed two years ago and there's no one that I know of in practical distance that custom mixes now.
