    So is All Flock a new product? Find it odd that none of the distributors of Nutrena even carry it?

    Nutrena is headquartered in Minneapolis, MN but we have mills all over the country, including one just North of Seattle in Burlington, WA.
    Yes, All Flock is a relatively new product - we launched the formula early this spring and while it may not be available everywhere yet, it is catching on fast. The fastest way to make it available in your area is to request it from your favorite Nutrena dealer [​IMG].

    Tiffany,

    What is the major difference between the two Nutrena lines of Nature Wise and Country?

    LoL, aside from the bags, since I can get both was wondering if there is any difference at all. Nutrena is all we feed all of the animals from goats and rabbits to geese, ducks and chickens.

    I use this product and LOVE it. (So do the chickens, ducks and geese.). I love the smaller pellet size, too.

    I've always used Nutrena medicated feed for chicks, though. I know that's a personal thing; personally, I think it's necessary for my youngsters.

    A friend of mine has just talked another feed store into carrying All Flock; this is great because that store is so much closer than the one where we've been buying it.

    Nutrients

    Crude Protein 18.0%
    Lysine 0.8%
    Methionine 0.31%
    Crude Fat 2.5%
    Crude Fiber 8.0%
    Calcium 1.4% - 1.9%

    Salt 0.25% - 0.65%

    So a bit of differnece in Methionine and fiber. I like the description of the Naturewise better. No added hormones etc.

    I also use it and love it.
