Default Any protein deals?

Anyone have any leads on protein at a good price? Looking to pickup between New Braunfels and Eldorado.

Thanks

I’ll start then. Calling around I’ve found a pallet price from $23/bag at Positive Feed in Sealy to the best so far at 9.95/bag at Strutty’s in Sand Springs. Y’all don’t be shy!

Paid $8/bag for record rack 14% protein in cross plains that’s not in the area you said but figured I would post it.

If you're gonna go to San Angelo why not just get a ton of cottonseed for $170?

Better than most protein you're gonna pay a whole lot more money for.

It’s not bagged feed so you would need hoops to put it in and a way to transport enough for all your stations

It also has none of the minerals so I’d look into adding mineral somewhere. I just feed it next to my protein pellets

I also feed trace mineral blocks and rice bran meal. I hunt in Eldorado. The mineral blocks can be bought from tractor supply usually cheaper than feed stores.

So, I’m told we already have two cottonseed stations (first year on this lease, first year to be on a lease). I’m responsible for filling the protein feeder once and I’m up.

Depending on how many bags you need to fill it you may save money driving a little farther.

M&G in Weimar. But if others have already been feeding, wouldn’t you want to feed the same brand?
