Two places. I'm lucky to have a feed mill nearby where I can get quality cow/goat feed at rock bottom prices. Their chicken feed however leaves much to be desired so I get chicken and horse feed at local Purina distributor that is mainly order only since their regular inventory is quite low. Both places are always fresh.

That IS super lucky.

I buy from a small business farm, Big D Ranch. They offer 50 pound bags of non GMO, whole grains for just $11 dollars! Cheap, but well worth it!

I buy the chicken feed and horse feed from the local feed store. I'm far pickier about the horse feed than the chicken feed.
The dog has allergies so I order hers online.

I get my chicken, dog, and kitten food from the farm store D&B. It’s the only option nearby for chicken feed, and the grocery store doesn’t carry my kitten or dogs’ food, only the adult cat food. The D&B is the closest thing there is to a pet store around here. I’m way out in the country, everything is over an hour away.

Had to choose other. It’s not a feed mill, but the place I purchase from is a local Conway Feeds supplier. Switched from TSC as I was spending $400+ per month for everyone. Now get equal quality feed that’s always in stock for $265 per month. Normally I just pick up 5-50# bags of starter/grower 18.5% pellet every two weeks. Everyone does very well on it.

Dogs are raw fed. Premade raw diet (NW Naturals) plus filler meats. 4 dogs can cost an “arm and a leg” to feed raw. More like leg and a leg from venison actually :lol:

Sounds awesome! I’ve never really had dogs (well, not large dogs. Just Chiweenies) to raw feed. But it sounds like a healthy lifestyle for them!
