I was just wondering how many bags of corn we each go through during a year. I've got 4 three hundred pound feeders and since January, I have filled them up three times. Thats, 3,600 pounds of corn this year and I expect to fill them at least one more time before January. That will make my total for the year of 4,800 lbs or 96 fifty pound bags.
Not counting protein, just corn, how many do you go through in a year.

We go through around 4000#/yr. Sometimes half of that if range conditions are good.

I feed 2000lbs per month plus 1500lbs or so of protein every other month the first 8 months of the year.

We feed corn year round in the Hill Country but only late summer through February in East Texas. Have about 3 tons of capacity in the Hill Country and probably fill each one 3-4 times a year.
Maybe about 10-12 tons a year.

We have 11 spin feeders. They get filled 4 times per year. We average around 13K lb per year through the feeders. Add a little more for what gets fed from the road feeders.

This is on ~1,200 acres in Llano Co.

Have one feeder that always has corn in it, never runs out. Have another that has corn about 6 months of the year. Never tried to keep track of quantity.

About 300 pounds per feeder, will fill and start the feeders as soon as it dries enough to get to them, Fill again in December, then not fill again until next October.

ugh ... hard to calculate for me. between my son and I, we maintain about 13 feeders but only run the 6 in east TX late summer thru Feb., the other 7 run year around at 3 other properties. Somewhere in the neighborhood of 22,000 to 25,000 lbs

I know back in the mid 90's a large feed store I worked for sold 1,125,000 bags(56,000,000 lbs) of deer corn to hunters thru their feed stores or one other very large group of retail stores. That was one company in the state out of 100's that sell corn.
I have 5-600# corn feeders and 3 protein feeders going year round. I feed probably 4000# corn out of the corn feeders then another 3000-4000# off the roads from Aug till Feb. Protein will depend on the year but from 5,000 to 11,000 per year.

Yea, after I did it, I thought why in the world did I want to know what I was spending a year on corn.
For all I knew it was just $7.49 for a couple of bags every now and then.

My feeder will go around 3000 pounds per year and I estimate another 1000 through my road feeder during season.

I own my place and I'm the only one that hunts. 18K pounds a year through four feeders. Actually, 16K through the four feeders and 2K lbs through a tailgate feeder.

Rather not add it up. Easier to keep the peace at home.
