    This may sound strange to some of you. I was at a NASTRA Hunt Trail. This breeder of Brittany's was there and He was feeding Wal-Mart HI PRO. I asked if it was as good as Purina. He answered it has all the same stuff. You have seen, my dog work and win on it what more is there to say. Guess what I feed Tony. He does very well on it also......Bob

    It's probably a purina food in a different bag I feed black gold. But if I didn't have so many dogs I'd feed purina.

    It is ver hard to know who it making the feed you use.  I worked for Ralston Purina and Purina Mills for many years in sales.  There are all kind of contracts to manufacture feed for other companies.  The key is to buy the best you can afford from one of the leaders.  If their name is on  the bag then the ingredients are going to be controlled more closely than the other brands they may be making for someone else.  A company can make many different rations at the same plant (and do).  High end to low end.  Bottom line you always get what you pay for.

    I made a mistake in the name It is "High Performance." I do know this my Wal-Mart got a shipment of the stuff today in 50 pound bags. I heard about it at 6:30 my time. Went right up and got the last bag. It sells out that quick.....Bob

    I'd use it if I could get it in quantity. But the Black Gold that I feed is also really good food and I feed 25 dogs and they all have slick shinny coats. I used to feed what Bob feeds to my dogs but I moved and can't get it.

    I'm feeding "Diamond" premium adullt. 26% protien, 18 fat.
    It is good food.
    I feed 3 hounds and my lab'. 2 cups per day per dog, keeps them shiny and fit. Any more than 2 cups and they start getting 'round' belly.
    Clean up is a snap. a couple of small, black, solid turds per day, that's it.
    I'm a believer in good dog food. Particularly when a dog is working hard.

    Crimony, that seems like a huge cat! I can't say as I've seen one outside of a zoo so I may be wrong. I do know that you're nuts for hunting those things.

    As far as feed, I give my dog EVO. A little pricey, but I don't have to feed as much.

    .. I never said they were "good"..   I agree whole heartedly.  In comparison to the dogs when we ran a lot, these are 'shooters'   I just keep 'em around to eat that hi' dolla' dog food and pester the neighborhood with their mouths..
    "Almost" again.. hee hee  I do miss running spring bear in tennis shoes 'n T-shirt too.

    We’ve been feeding Diamond Premium for over 20 years. We use to combine our buying with a couple other people feeding several dogs. We got it shipped directly to us from a warehouse in Chicago for about $5 a bag less than we could buy it locally. Unfortunately the folks we shared the buying with scaled back on the number of dogs they had and we couldn’t meet the minimum delivery to keep getting that price.

    My wife seems to know what all the ingredients are good for, right down to the enzymes and ratios. I’ve suggested other dog foods over the years – looked hard at Black Gold, but she compared the labels each time and had a good reason for staying with Diamond. I learned a long time ago not to argue with someone smarter than me.


    G.O.D. – nice cats. It must be a lot of fun hunting them. I hope you’re good at dodging the lightning bolts when you are out there.

    I'm actually getting it at an excellent price, I believe. ($21.50 p/ 50#) ... A fellow hunter and truck driver, happens to have a run where he is coming back this direction w/ an empty trailer. He's been picking up a half dozen pallets at a time, and bringing them back.
    Ten years ago, I was giving $28 for it, out of the feed store.

    I feed mine Orijen, it's a pricey one, very high protein with the added bonus of very stinky farts. I also don't have to feed her as much.

    Buckeye, I've done a lot of reading/researching on dog feed and I'm not sure I've ever heard of this one. Ya got a link?
