View Full Version : What are you paying for a bag of feed?

May. 29, 2009, 05:34 PM
I'm paying $21/bag for TC Senior and also for TC lite. Fortunately I don't feed a lot of either, mine mostly eat grass/hay.

Grain's gotten painful to buy. I switched not too long ago to Blue Seal Strider which I think is now $14.85 per bag here. A couple years ago it was $9 per bag. I switched from BS Vintage Victory which went from $12 to $18 per bag in the same time frame.
I also don't feed much at all...two horses and each gets a single quart per day so a bag lasts me about 2 weeks.
Sad thing is I can remember buying grain and freaking out when it hit $3.50 per bag, LOL! (hay averaged $0.50-$0.75 per bale and we all freaked out when it went over $1, LOL)

My TC Senior is around $16/bag and the Nutrena XTN is $18/bag. It's gone up considerably in the last year or so. VERY expensive to feed horses these days!

Thank goodness we have great pastures and plenty of hay. I give my two "fatties" about 1/2 cup grain twice a day (just enough to mix with joint supplement) and my old guy (28 yrs old) gets about 6 cups of the Senior (along with Beet Pulp).

It's much cheaper to keep up with good maintenance on your pastures and feed good quality hay (and better for the horses also!).

I paid $11 and change for 50lb of Nutrena Triumph. We also feed Nutrena Lite Balance and Compete, but I don't know those prices off the top of my head.

Have three different horses on three different feeds (don't even ask!!), one gets Vitality Ultra 17.95 per 50# bag, Purina Ultium @ $21.00 per bag and the winner, Buckeye Cadence @ $26.50 per bag. Moving everyone to our own farm on Monday, hoping to consolidate this whole mess!

I am feeding whole oats @ $9/bag. The only other feed I like is XTN, which has gone thru the roof.

Was paying 16.75 per bag BS Vintage Performance, can no longer get it locally so I am now using Legends Performance pellets, which were 15.05/bag.

Also use TC Lite for 16.15 per bag. TC Senior also but I can't recall that...

Wow, I though TC senior was steep here at $18.39, but I guess it gets worse! Eep.

Anyway, that's what I pay. I only go through 2 bags a month though, so it isn't too bad.

$16 a bag for Equilux Senior- I only feed a small amount with a scoop of selenium (HorseGuard). One bag for 3 horses lasts 2 weeks, so 2 bags a month = $32 a month (plus hay and selenium)

$14.99 for a 50 lb bag of Nutrena Safe Choice. $12 for an 88 lb bag of whole oats. :-)

TC Legends 11% pellets are 12.45 a bag here via Agway.

I pay $14 a bag for beet pulp shreds. My horses get very little since they have ample pasture. Just enough to get supps in them. I've got 6 horses and one bag of beet pulp shreds lasts me 5 weeks:D

30$/bag of Dynamite PGR (really not so painful since I've still got more than half a bag left after a month- hey, shipping was free on it, had to see what the hype was!)
$18.98 for a 50lb bag of Nutrena Vitality Ultra (I feed about 1.5lbs/day, and I probably won't be buying more after this bag since hopefully I won't need it)
$13.95 for a 50lb bag of crimped oats, which lasts me around 2 months.

TC Lite at $19/bag... I am switching my other boy over to TC Lite from Prog. Nutrition's ProAdvantage Grass (a ration balancer) that ran $29/bag.

Around 10-15 dollars

I think I still "win", if winning = paying the most for feed! :lol:

Buckeye Trifecta and Growth are in the $28.00 range per bag and the Alfa Grow N Win is a whopping $32.00!

When you go "shopping" and get 10-15 bags of each for the little darlings each month, there is $1000.00++ gone before you can blink ...

Do I get anything for being the winner??? ;)

Blue Seal Vintage Senior 16.95 a bag. I go through 3 bags per week with 3 horses. That is because my horses do not eat hay, just pasture grass, and now that the grass is growing like mad, I can cut back on the feed (the horses are looking a bit, um, chunky :D ).

May. 30, 2009, 09:45 PM
I pay $21 for Seminole Wellness Show and Sport 12% protein 12% fat
I feed significantly less of it, so we only go thru 3 bags a month.
