Some buddies bought a ranch which has silos on it. One is full to the top with protein pellets three years old or more. Never been wet. No mold. Ain't going to feed it out. Do they need to bury it?

Don't knock old protein. That's what my body is made of.

Use it in 1 feeder and let the deer decide. The worst that can happen is that you end up pouring it out and moving the feeder a short ways. Deer may not dislike it as much as you think. Would be a shame to see that the deer are hitting the dump ground where you trashed all of the old protein. You never know how long sacks of feed sit in a warehouse. Probably not 3 years, but I would let the deer decide.

I like the experiment idea. I wouldnt be shocked if the deer hit it as good as fresh protein.

About how much they think is in there? Several ton? That will be a lot to bury.

I’m curious why you would bury it at all? Even if the deer didn’t care for no way I’d go through the time and effort to bury it.

May have cattle or other livestock and don't want to founder them.

If it hasn’t been wet what concerns them about feeding it?

not sure they would founder like grain. I feed creep feeders for years with different ration mixs and never had one founder on pellets. Lots of fiber in pellets. Horses are a different story

The thought is to dispose of it rather than feed it. Wanting to do it right and no concerned with cheap Charleying it. Feeding something or allowing any wildlife to consume something supposed to be fed in 90 days, but now has muliple yeas on it, could have unintended consequences these people don't want to deal with.

I definitely fit the bill of cheap Charlie! Just don’t think there is any risk being averted either. My backyard dear are eating a bag of LE that’s over a year old right now they are happy.

Not so sure a horse is not going to get sick over any protein, much less old protein.

If nothing eats it just broadcast it over the pasture. I wouldn’t go through the effort of burying.

Call a vet or the texas wildlife biologists and ask them their thoughts on feeding it. It would be worth the cost of a simple phone call.


If I'm not hunting something I must be dead.

If there’s no mold I’d try feeding it for sure. But I guess if you have money to buy a ranch with silos then you likely aren’t concerned with a few grand in old protein.
