Default Cottonseed usage and price?

Once the deer get on it, about how much cottonseed can I expect them to go through per feeder per month? Central Texas, fairly high deer density.

Also, what would be considered a good price per ton?

We are in Menard county and have a high deer density. We start feeding cottonseed at the end of December and feed it through the end of August along side our protein/corn feeders. They really hammer it from the end of December until Spring green-up (have to refill every 3 weeks). If we get good rain early Spring and have a lot of native forage, then the feeders will last a little longer (around 4-5 weeks). If the deer are stressed (late Winter and summer time), they eat the heck out of it.

They are built out of 2”x4” fence wire and wrapped in a circle about an 24” diameter or so. It holds about 300lbs.

I am verifying a price, but it's cheap this year. Running around $135/ton in Nolan county. I'll let y'all know for sure when my brother texts me back. We're converting a grain trailer to use it to feed our cattle this winter.
