If I understand the evolution of this thread correctly, since April of 2016 to 2019, DD has gone from a small business to a much larger business and as discussed, there may have been changes to their product as a result. Correct? The feed analysis report we see from 2016 might not be the current story?

In on the results of the analysis from Peyton. Very interested to see that report. Thanks TXBRASS for keeping up the list. Very helpful.

Bee County Co-Op sent me these two latest test results from 2018. They said they run test on a regular basis to insure quality and TDN.

I just got off the phone with L&E. They said their 20% formula has a TDN of 70.02%. Has it gone down?

Must have. Iím going to try and get updated ones from all the major feeds ASAP.... After this post got some attention, a lot of the companies arenít as helpful as they once were. Seems many like to keep these feed analysis reports out of the public eye and hope customers will just look at the feed label.

I am not spending $$$$$ on feed, but if I was I would not buy from a company that hid the data. Its odd DD won't give you a recently dated analysis. If my product was the best and I knew it, I would give the info to all comers.

Good luck TXBRASS and thanks for maintaining the list.

No response should tell you something. Especially from DD as some of their prices dropped slightly to 12-13 a bag

Last time I spoke with DD (about a year ago) they requested a link to this thread. My only guess is that their current Feed Analysis Report is not what it was in 2016 and thatís why they refuse to send one now. I know that they have the link and are monitoring (or were) this thread.

I did find out yesterday that Bee Co Co-Op pellets will now be carried in Hallettsville at the new Bahuslav Feed Store thatís opening on Hwy-90 just east of the city limits. I talked to the owner and he said that the Bee Co Co-Op pellets is looking for new dealers currently. Guess Iíll be making the switch to them.

The guy at Bee Co. Co-Op told me that they do not sacrifice or edit their recipe due to price fluctuations so cost can vary throughout the year based on ingredient cost. They said that they are dedicated to keeping the TDN at the highest level possible.

We use Bee Co as well. This is the data he sent me at the beginning of the year
When season rolled around our deer were fat and happy but we seen very little gains in head gear.
Hoping the drought conditions were to blame.

You won't get one. Their price dropped for a reason.

And their employees/chronies like Hunter West are too busy on FB and tagging DD in every buck that increased his antler size this season.
