    So I've been reading and reading about feed prices. And it seems like the lost value can be found if the feed is bought directly from a feed mill.

    So here's my question. How do you get in touch with a feed mill? I know there's a Mountaire feed mill about an hour north of me, but would they be the type of feed mill I'm looking for?

    Thanks!

    Feed mills can be a great deal. Theres one about an hour north of me that I was just told about; apparently chick starter (non-medicated) is $8.50 per 50#, when Im paying 12.00 per 50# here in town. I may make a trip up there when it cools off, so I can buy enough to make it worth my while without it spoiling.

    Well then I shall add on to my question. Anyone in the Eastern Shore area know of a good feed mill to use? [​IMG]
