    If you mix --
    25 lbs catfish food (32% pro)
    50 lbs cracked corn (8.5% pro)

    You would get a feed at 16.3% protein.

    If I could add a suggestion,
    Since you live in Alliance go to Schott feed on East Patterson Street and get a bag of pigeon feed with corn, floating catfish pellet and a bag of cracked corn.

    Mix it at --
    45 lbs cracked corn
    30 lbs pigeon feed
    25 lbs catfish pellet


    To only other suggestion I have is to see if Schott feed has a non-medicated turkey starter in stock and replace the catfish pellet with the turkey starter.
    If the turkey starter is a little less protein you can adjust the feed as needed.


    Oh and stay away from the TSC there on State street, there over priced. [​IMG]

    Yup, they sell it 50 lb bags.

    16% protein mixed at --
    45 lbs cracked corn
    30 lbs pigeon
    25 lbs catfish pellet

    Now I think that Star Mill in Louisville carries Buckeye Big 4 if so you could go with --

    50 lbs pigeon
    40 lbs big 4
    10 lbs crack corn

    Big 4 pellet link --
