Where are you getting yours from? I buy mine in bulk from Cen-Tex in Richland Springs. It is $485 a ton delivered in my feeders. Works out to $9.70 for 50lbs and I never touch it.

Down in Three Rivers. I bought 7 tons so I did get a price break. I'm sure it may be a little higher if only buying a few bags here and there.

This might not be the game for you, if you have to ask.
Be prepared to spend lots and lots of money. Be prepared to start second guessing your decision to start supplemental feeding. But dont give up. Just feed more.

How do you get $9.70 for 50 lbs? If my math is correct, $485/40 (bags per ton) that is $12.13 per 50 lbs. We setup L&E to do the same thing with our feeders. We were quoted a lot less than that for a 8 ton order.

Yes sir. Not because it was bad feed, but this is more convenient for our pasture. Itís going to cost us $10.71 per 50 lbs to have L&E come put it in our feeders. We are meeting the guy there next Friday for our first feed. We will be giving him a map with feeder locations & key to the gate for the next time so we will not have to be there with him. All of our guys live at least 4 hours from the Ranch. This is going to save us a lot of time and money compared to how we had to do it with RHR.

Yes sir. We order 8 tons at a time. Cost is $416 ton plus $10 a feeder. We have 10 feeders. Add it all up and itís $10.71 a bag put into our feeders without me lifting a thing. Hard to beat that.

You are correct on the math...apparently I had a brain f**t when I was calculating the cost, but it is what it is.

My local feed store is now carrying the Thomas Moore Big Buck deer feed. Anyone have any experience with this brand? It's offered at a pretty good price.
