    Feed Prices going up

    I went and picked up feed this morning and its went up again. I buy mine from co-op, they mix it local. It's called Rooster booster its 18% and a 50# bag cost $16.22. Seems like every two months it goes up. Whats everyone else paying right now and has it went up for you also?

    I mix my on, but the price on grain itself is always up and down here. The only thing that stay`s close to the same is lay pellets. I was feeding a pre mixed feed until the price keep going up every week, like your talking about.

    My personal experience with co-op feeds is that its junk and full of bugs. Maybe its just the co-op I deal with. If your in TN I would try to find the Gamecock feed mixed in Loretta TN. Ive always used with good results and its about $13.25 per 50 lbs.

    Re: Feed Prices going up

    BIGG JOE whats the name of it and protein %? I used to get some out of Kentucky also but got tired of them being out at the store I got it from.

    Kelsoroosters I got some from Crossville (Bobs Feed & Fertillizer) but it had to much whole corn in it for the summer, I liked it for the winter. It was 16% protein.The co-op brand I don't have a prob with bugs its just made in the next county over and is supper fresh.The smell reminds me of sweet feed. I'd say its the molasses in it I smell.

    You boys in Tn have some good deals over there. Im paying about $14 a sack for simple 16% lay pellets and $12 a sack for hen scratch. A couple years ago they were both about $5 a sack cheaper.

    I live just a couple miles from Arkansas, they have Blue Bonnet Gamecock and Gamecock conditioner at Hirsch Feed Store in West Plains MO. Not sure how far you are from there though.

    You could always try Black Rooster, I know Hirsch sells it also, it's cheaper but not as good of quality in my opinion.

    Re: Feed Prices going up

    My area FRM puts out a good Gamecocock mix Gamecock conditioner and Gamecock Maintainence. I prefer the Conditioner as it doesnt have as much corn in it.Was paying $11 /50 for it it went up to almost $16/50 I dont carry as many extra breeders and clean up my walkups a little better.

    I live in mexico so we pay for a mixture of grains about 20$.. for 33 kilos..the only thing thats goes up or down is the value of the dollar!! So if it goes down we spend more money but when it goes up well that another story.

    Re: Feed Prices going up

    17.85 for my custom mixed feed and thats getting a ton at a time. It sure beats the other comercial mixes and I really like it but its hurting my pockets. Guys from Hawaii if you get Leach feed you might want to start asking them to see if you can get some JCJFARMS mix so we all can get a better price. I know they sell a lot of high octane over there.
