    I think I'm getting a smokin' deal. My feed store sells Perma-Guard in 50# bags for $19.95. It seems as though that's cheaper than what others are getting it for. Am I just lucky, or is even $19.95 not that great of a price?

    I got a 50# bag from my feed store for $25, so I think yours isn't bad!

    I paid $25 for a 50# bag and then $33 to ship it! I'd say you got a pretty good deal from where I'm sitting. I wish I could find it local.

    I too pay about $26 for a 50 lb bag that i haven't even began to put a dent in yet. Great deal you got!

    I paid 19.95 plus tax 6.5% for 50# from local country store. I did have to have them order it. Took about a week. BTW, i love the stuff. I use a strainer to sprinkle it around the coop. Makes a big difference in odor and dryness. Good Luck [​IMG]
