Bob can you please link to the product you're talking about? or provide a picture of the bag. Or does it matter which bag or brand? All I care about is that all the potential weed seeds are ground up and not viable. This looks like a great product for the price.

Hello David,
I buy what is in stock at Dillard Feed in Weatherford but I am sure the feed stores in San Antonio will have these.
Purina is more expensive so I use feed from Golden Oak Milling:
http://www.goldenoakmilling.com/
http://poultry.purinamills.com/OURPRODU ... fault.aspx

Golden Oak is cheaper and they have the 28% and 24% options that contain the fish meal and molasses but I used the 20% Laying Ration. Use the crumbles form which passes through any spreader very easily.

Check these dealers for Golden Milling:
COMFORT, TEXAS ATKISON FEED 210-995-2186
FREDERICKSBURG, TEXAS LOCHTE STORAGE
830-997-2256
WOERNER WAREHOUSE
830-997-2246
HARPER, TEXAS BEHRENDS @ BODES
830-864-4004
MARBLE FALLS, TEXAS CROWNOVER FEED BARN
830-693-4458

All I can get in George West is scratch at 8-10% protein. Bummer.

Now that I live on Lake Fork I am using Fish food pellets to attract catfish to my dock.
It has similar ingredients to chicken feed but is 32% protein which is roughly 5% nitrogen!
A 50 lb bag costs $20.
So I use it in my garden and flower beds but it's too big to use in a spreader.

Bob, all animal feeds make good fertilizers. The nitrogen content of protein is really 16%. Remember the feeds you are pricing are conventionally grown, probably GMO. Organic feeds are going to cost about what bagged organic fertilizers cost. I'm not positive but check it out. Many organic experts recommend corn, sugar, cottonseed meal and burrs, alfalfa meal, seaweed and fish products. I'm sure all of these plant materials are grown conventionally, contaminated with pesticides and herbicides. The growing of all these crops on the industrial scale is destroying other animal's habitat, eroding soil which eventually ends up in oceans with their load of chemicals causing dead zones.
As you already know they are fossil fuel intensive and are adding to the climate problem. The best choice is to make your own fertilizer using readily available local tree leaves, food scraps and your own urine. Yes, it's labor intensive, but good for you and the planet.
Check out Milorganite's website to see how they make humanure. Very informative.
