Has anybody else had a problem with TSC's Dumor Finisher/Grower?

    So far both the store where I am at and the one in Canton,Ga have had really bad bags of this stuff. When I bought this feed the bags were not opened or in no way appear to have gotten wet. But when I opened the bag it looked like some one had soak the feed before hand and looked as if it had been setting up for some time,almost pure mold [​IMG] How am I suppose to feed my babies with that stuff?I refuse too.I was wondering if anybody else has had the same problem?

    That's terrible!! Definitely, never feed them feed that is moldy. Of course, you know that. I'd return it every time. Disgusting. You'd be better off driving up to the co-op up here and buying their feeds. Never dusty or moldy and cheaper, too. Feed issues are why I quit buying at Brown's, too, but theirs is often buggy.

    I have bought a bag of the Dumor feed from TSC last year that was filled with little black bugs. [​IMG] Really not happy about it. Brought it back and they opened 3 more bags to find the same thing. They said they were sending all the bags back and I got free feed.

    I return all buggy feed and certainly, if I found mold in some, I'd raise a ruckus about it. That can kill the birds (the mold). Bugs deplete the nutritional value of the feed, too.

    I got a moldy bag from TSC once...took it back and they gave me a new one which was fine. However, the next time I went I looked at the expiration dates and ALL the bags were expired...I refuse to buy feed there anymore.

    That is not the type of TSC Dumor feed I used, but I did have problems last year. There was no mold in the bags but something was defiantly wrong. Used about 200 lbs and with in a month I had lost half my flock. I switched back to the locally made feed from the local feed mills and have not have a problem with massive die offs since or before I tried the TSC feed.

    What kind of prices do you pay at the fannin co coop for a 50lb bag of laying pellets? Just wondering because if it beats my stores prices I might just have to take a road trip. "[​IMG]" I would love to have an excuse to go to Blue Ridge, used to live half way between there and Ellijay. Beautiful.

    For their 16% layer, I pay $9.50 for 50#. They actually have a couple of different brands, like ADM Alliance Egg Maker and they have a 22% layer pellet as well. The Tucker Milling comes in a mini-pellet that is great for bantams, too. Same price. They have a fabulous 11 grain scratch, too, called KnockOut, plus lesser ones.

    I'm fond of this area. This is the longest I've lived in one place since my DH and I got married 33 years ago.
