Poultry feed prices - let's keep track
« on: January 16, 2012, 05:47:29 pm »
Just an idea, how about a rolling thread so we can keep track of how much we're all paying for feed? My hope is that this will build up to be a useful reference source in time. If nothing else, we'll be able to look back in five years time and say "only 10 a bag!, those were the days eh?"  ;)

So, no discussion on this thread (plenty of room for that elsewhere), just your location, feed type bought, quantity and amount paid.

I'll start:

Stirling (Carrs Billington).
Standard layers pellets, 25kg, 9.45 ea
Mixed corn, 25kg, 9.98 ea
Whole wheat, 25kg, 7.88 ea

Staffordshire. Three price rises last year, so up 40p a bag from year before.
Smallholder layers 8.00 for 20Kg
Smallholder Rearers 8.50 for 20kg
These are bulk buy delivered prices -half ton lots. Add 1 for retail.

Whole Wheat, 25kg, 7.72

Boquhan Stores (nr Kippen, Stirlingshire), 25/02/2012:

Whole Wheat, 25kg, 8.79

So roughly 14% more expensive at Boquhan than in Larbert.
