Get at it boys. One part freerange missed -- this is you AVERAGE feeder. Don't give me some hubub about "well I have different feeders that I run differently".

Corn average for one year
Ive been managing a big place for a long while. I buy everything(like corn) and everybody reimburses me. This gives me a record of all this stuff. For this I did an average of the last few years. We fill all of them at the same time and set to throw at the same times and the same amounts. We start filling about monthly starting in Sept and after the Jan fill we turn way down and fill twice in the off season and that gets us back around to Sept. This does not include road corn. For what its worth, we pay one of our very qualified members to fill all the feeders and keep them maintained and that costs each man about $200 a year.
1000 bags divide by 25 feeders = 40 bags a feeder
1000 bags times 50# ea= 50000 #s divide by 25 feeders = 2000# per feeder
1000 bags times $7.50 ea= $7500 divide by 25 feeders = $300 per feeder
$7500 divide by 18 guys = $417 per man

TLew, thanks for the revised poll. Some value in comparing apples to apples now.
