    It may only be a coincidence but best to err on the side of caution..

    Guess what I bought for the FIRST time ever ?? :ep


    Got home, not even unloaded and read this. Tried 3 days ago & none in stock. This was only bag left from new delivery.

    Now I'm considering "what to do". :( Phone calls at least.

    I suspect this is going to end up being caused by high afatoxins, if it is indeed caused by a specific feed. Several years ago, there was a big recall of producers pride and other Cargill products (as well as other brands) because of aflatoxins. They originated or at least were found in Cargill's Lecompte La plant.

    It may also be forage related, with unseasonably warm temps and plenty of moisture, it gives rise to new growth in even warm season grasses which can cause tetany and Mg problems. The mentioned county (St Lucie Fla) is farther South than I am and I'm seeing some green growth coming up, tho the cows don't let it very high at all..
