On the Farm
Between cattle, hogs and chickens, we go through a lot of feed around here. Luckily we can buy in bulk, filling the upright bins. Feeding the animals is the largest cost of growing the animal to harvest. Buying bulk feed is cheaper than bagged feed, plus there’s less waste and we save time by eliminating multiple trips to the feed store. For us “bulk” buying means anywhere from 1-9 TONS at a time, depending on the feed.
