i was wondering were do people buy wheat? would a fee store sell it?
Some feed stores do. I've only seen it at one out of 5 though. I only use wheat for homemade hamster food and as a treat for budgies so I just buy it at the grocery store for $ .40/lb.
bird food stores dont sell it do they?
I don't know where you live....is it anywhere near a grain/feed elevator. We grow it and in my area it's very easy to find at any elevator.
Quote:no feed elevator that i know of around here
I buy it in bulk here, the feed stores sell it. It is one of my main ingredients to my feed. I feed it to everything(except the dog and parrots).
Quote:just curious what you pay for it......I'd like to see how much mark-up there is between those of us who grow and sell it off the farm and when you buy it.
It is probably cheaper where you are at...I am paying: wheat is 15.00 per 100 #'s, Oat's are 16.00 per 100
Quote:That's almost twice as much as we get selling it off the farm. Today our local market closed at $5.76 per bushel (60 pounds) which figures out to .09 per pound.
To the OP, do you have farms within a days drive? What kinds of grains are grown in your region?. If they grow wheat, get it where they do. Look for a co op.
Don't expect to find it at a feed only type store.
