    Default Corn Prices!!!

    Called several feed stores around the Louisville area and got some quotes for shelled corn prices. All are around $10 per 50lb. Does anyone were i can get corn cheaper? Does anyone use any cheaper alternatives to corn for feeding/attracting deer? I dont think i can afford to feed like i like to with Corn being that high.

    THanks

    It is a hard pill to swallow but according to the feed stores it will not be going down anytime soon. I went to an electronic feeder this year because of corn and fuel prices. Just can't afford to motor to the woods every weekend (which I love to do) and dump corn. Good luck but between $9.25 and $11.00 is what you'll have to pay.

    Corn prices right now are hovering around $8 per bushel and I have heard some talk of $10 per bushel by the fall. I hate to see hunters pay this, but being a farmer I love seeing these high prices. Its getting to be a high risk with corn being around $300 per acre to put out and no guarentee that you getting anything in return, unless you have insurance.

    Which place in Bardstown had that price. $7.50 per 50 is not as bad as $10 but still not great

    I plan on buying some bulk ear corn now that is left over from last year and put the deer in our area on a diet..... No way I am going to keep shelled corn out at several places this year at those prices...I'll just put out some acorn crunchers in front of the cameras

    He better buy all he can at that price. He's paying about $5.50 a bushel. Cash price a farmer can sell it for is $7.00.
