    So I don't know if anyone has noticed or not but Walmart is now selling livestock merchandise.
    Our local store has Scratch, Layer Pellets, Hog Feed, Horse feed and cracked corn. Plus they have saddle blankets, ivermectin paste, halters, leads, all kinds of horse/cow stuff, huge rubber feed/water bowls and lots of suppliments.
    This kinda bums me out a bit bc the local feed stores now have to contend with WMs prices.

    I noticed this recently. Did you notice they don't have chick starter/grower yet? My local feed and seed layer pellets/crumbles price is better!

    Ours have been selling scratch for over 4 years now. They never get the hint that they should sell layer pellets

    Where's the stuff from ... China?

    Take note of a new frozen vegetables company "Europe's Best" some of their stuff is from Europe, the rest from China.

    I've noticed the scratch, but refuse to buy it.

    We buy from a local feed store, who carries Pennsylvania products. I buy as much as I can from the local farmers.

    ours sells all that also - I get the feed for our flock at TS but in a pinch we had to buy a bag of layer pellets at walmart - but we dont make a habit of buying it - it just looks "cheap".
