    This may have been covered already but I can put about 1000 lbs of horse feed in an old freezer in my pump house
    My chicken food is in steel trash cans.
    Is that what most of you do???

    We use the trash can (32 Gal) and put bag & all in them. Some of the feed we get says not to put in metal cans, therefore the whole bag goes in these metal cans.

    Metal trash cans for me too. I have had the same ones for years and they are outside year round. I do have mine on bricks to they don't have contact with the ground.
