    I was just curious if people have started seeing a drop in feed prices. I buy my feed from a local mill. They have dropped their feed price about $2 from this time last year. It's because corn prices have dropped at least $2 a bushel since last year. I'm paying $9.57 for a 50 lb. bag. A year ago I was paying $11.53 for the same bag.

    Yes. I buy from a local mill and the feed here is about the same price. It's dropped about $2.00. I also use organic feed and that is the same price. It's shipped from VA.

    Ya, bagged mill feed is going down about 50c a bag September to November, ie layer feed is down from 9.75 to 9.25, corn is down about a dollar ie shelled corn 7.75 to 6.75 ... interestingly enough though, the brand feeds are not down much, and a couple have gone higher.
