    Mine is $9.75 too. That is up from $6.50 last summer. The price is insane. That is why we trim trees, rake leaves and do everything we have to do give them plenty to eat and a small grain portion daily.

    The sweet feed I mix for my dairy girls is $11 and change. [​IMG]

    We just paid 11.50 for a bag of goat feed We do the same thing give them plenty of trees and brush to help keep the feed bill down.

    Yep. Feed prices are depressing.

    Here an all stock sweet feed is running $9.50/50lbs.

    Goat Chow by Purina $13.50

    There is'nt much feed of any kind around here for much less than $10.00 a bag and average is about $12.00.

    Dumor- $12.99, Producer's Pride Medicated feed- $10.99, All Stock Feed (Sweet Feed)- $8.98. Coastal Hay- $5 a bale.

    I used to get just Dumor goat feed but now I get the medicated goat feed and also mix it with some All-Stock Feed as well which the goats seem to really love.

    Quote:Haha of course they do, sweet feed is sweet, it has molasses in it, we feed it to our horses with some hay cubes in the summer, and hay in the winter.

    We pay about $2.50/large square bail for hay, geez so expensive in the US!

    We went through a drought last year. No rain = no hay. Yes, that will make it very expensive.
