Homestead All Natural Poultry Feeds from Hubbard Feeds

Discussion in 'Feeding & Watering Your Flock' started by Lazy J Farms Feed & Hay, Apr 14, 2008.

  1. Hubbards Feeds has recently launched a new line of All Natural poultry feeds called Homestead Feeds. These feeds are formulated to contain no rendered animal proteins and antibiotics. The entire line of feeds has been simplified to better meet the needs of the hobby breeders as well as the all-natural entrepeneurs.

    A summary of the feeds can be found at: http://www.homesteadfeeds.com/Poultry/poultry.html


    If
    anyone has questions about the feeds, please PM me.


    In the essence of full disclosure: my wife and I are dealers for Hubbard Feeds and I am a nutritionist for Hubbard Feeds.

    ummmmmmmmmm...... first ingredients are "grain products, protein products"

    Nice that they are being upfront with customers about ingredients [​IMG] [​IMG]
     
  3. The use of those collective terms is acceptable and used quite often in the feed industry. Rather than criticize Homestead, why not question why LOL/Purina, Cargill/Nutrena, and ADM do not offer feed tags or nutrient guarantees on their websites?

    Sorry, I feed my birds Organic, and am very picky about ingredients. I have no idea what Purina or the other conventional companies list, but when I look for feed (or dog food!) ingredients, I want it to say exactly what is in it. I, for example, am on the lookout for a soy-free feed. I know it is made, and was just wondering if you guys offered that. When I look at the ingredient list of *anything* and they are that general, it makes me wondering what they are trying to hide. JMHO, and the honest opinion of someone who was genuinely interested in your product.
     
  8. Leanna:

    I apologize if I took your cryptic message out of context.

    As I stated, the Homestead Poultry feeds are all-natural and were designed for both the lifestyle farmer as well as entrepeneurs capturing the all-natural feeding venue. They are not Organically certified nor are the soy free or GMO free.

    If you want a soy free feed I can formulate one for you, but it would require two ton minimum orders as it will not be a main line feed.

    Arwmommy- Why are you looking for soy free feed? I have seen this posted before and have never had a chance to find out what the problem is with soy.
