Reading thru the thread on cottonseed, and wanting to start it for our place, I'm wondering if anyone knows where I'd find some in the Kaufman or Freestone county area? Anywhere semi-close by or in between would suffice as well. Just called the biggest feed store close to the property and was told they carry it during deer season but not now. Now seems to be when it would be most beneficial.

Would prefer it to be bagged since we have no way to store or transport bulk seed.


Thanks

I would not have thought to check with them, but it appears they have it locally.

Thanks

So expensive in bags more than double ur price. Even if u can pile it on the ground and put panels around it saves a ton.

This what we do. Buy a tote sack, cut it open and snow shovel in into the feed pen from the bed of the truck.

This year will be a test for us, going to start with one feeder in our protein pen.I am curious to see if it will take any pressure off the protein, or what the results will be. If they take to it like I hope they will we'll figure out a more reasonable strategy moving forward.

The first step is to get some tangible data from the field. The next step will be everyone else acknowledging any positive results and getting on board with integrating it into our program. Right now we just don't have anywhere to store it in bulk so bags it is until the rest can be sorted out. Hunting with family is great in some ways, and tougher in others. In my situation I am the one who hatches these ideas for our place, like feeding protein, and am on my own until the rest see the results and get on board.

Atwood’s has it and rice bran. Most of my deer just looked at it. Maybe I did it at wrong time of year. I just poured it on the ground and mostly the coyotes peed on it.

Capps told me they'd have it again in the fall. Tractor Supply has it in stock though.
