    Was wondering if there was anpther name for Diatomaceous Earth or someone who knows where I should be looking at the farm store I have asked at the store and they always look at me funny. All I have is a tractor supply and a Rural king.

    My farm store also claims to not carry it. They do, but it is under the brand name Fossil Flour.

    It is an ingredient in Stall Dry- 40% DE, 60% clay.

    A lot of people resort to on line.

    My TSC doesn't carry it. No place around here does that I've found.
    I actually got a 50 lbs bag off ebay. Can't recall the price but it was better than any I found on the livestock supply websites.

    I buy mine at a feed supply. I just bought 40lbs food grade DE for 13.99. Buckleyes in Ohio. Look online for places where they make feed, ground corn, etc. A lot of the poultry supplies charge a ridiculous price. Make sure you get food grade. Hope this helps.
