It's going to put DD out of business.

So it's regular cottonseed with added minerals?

460 a ton vs 230 a ton for bulk cotton seed. I can’t justify that cost difference for added minerals.

Agreed. I’ll just continue to put out cottonseed along a mineral lick out and a protein feeder.

Speer Ag in Uvalde I think it was 2 or 3$ more for a 50lb bag than regular cottonseed. Its a lot cheaper to just buy the bag of mineral and sprinkle it on top of every 50-100lbs you put out than to buy the fortified stuff.

the gin in Byrome has been doing this for a while, it has protein pellets and a mineral pack mixed with the cotton seed. last time I bought it, it was 6.25 for a 50 lb bag.

Not if the DD clique has anything to do with it

They cant advertise every deer gaining 20-40 inches a year like DD Koolaid does

Bump
Has anyone else used the fortified cottonseed any? I don't plan on buying/feeding bulk stuff but just a few bags in a couple of old cattle troughs near water/mineral/feeder locations.

Its a gimmick, I think between protein and regular cotton the deer are doing just fine. Before long we will be having to give lap band surgery to deer good grief.

We put out regular seed and a mineral block. Then the deer can access the mineral when they need it....

For those putting out mineral blocks, what are y’all using? I assume you mean the hard mineral lick blocks for cattle?

As a rule, deer in the western 2/3 of the state don't have mineral deficiencies.

The ones we put out are salt and trace mineral blocks. Another guy on the lease buys them. But fairly certain they are just the cattle version

It's $15 a bag in madisonville and Fairfield, and $16 in huntsville.

My buddy put out a bag to see if they'd eat it, deer walked around it and when the corn was all gone the hogs destroyed it.

Bout all I got.
