I stumbled across this brand on my quest to find a good quality feed for the best price. The mill is in Texas and the feed is considerably less expensive than other brands I’ve looked at - by $2 to $5 per 50.

The nutritional breakdown seems good. For my needs - a lactating doe and one of her two kids joining me in a couple of weeks as my firsties.

I couldn’t find any credible bad reviews or recalls online. So, I thought I’d ask if anyone here has experience with Country Companion or has any thoughts on it?

I should add, my first choice (or so I thought) was a brand carried by my local chicken feed supply store. But the goat feed I wanted was medicated. I prefer nonmedicated because (1) I’m consuming the milk and (2) I’m not a fan of medicating unless there is an identified illness to treat.

Can't say anything about their goat feed but i use Country Companion 20% protein All Flock for my chickens, guineas and turkeys. For the price is is a decent feed.

Try it and watch to see how the goats do on it. if they don't do well or you don't like the feed then you can change. Price should always be considered as long as the ingredients are the same and the mineral makeup is equivalent.

Good luck with your new goats.

I looked them up, I’m always interested in not spending as much money. I found their web site, looks like the front page is all they got. Either that or I’m incredibly stupid and can’t find my way around the internet. Also looks like they’re priced higher than what I’m using, and have been using for 20+ years.

Martindale Feed, I use the all purpose 14% pellet, pay $14 per 50 pound bag. I fed it to my horses for years, then sheep, feeder pigs and even laying hens.

Yeah, that lone front page makes me think they are a small company, possibly without an IT department. Not a dealbreaker but I wanted to see if the there was more info out there on them.

I will see if Martindale is available in my area and price compare. Otherwise, I may give the Country Companion a try.

It's not a one-page site. At least it isn't now. It doesn't have a full menu, just the hamburger menu like you see on mobile sites. That being said, I can't find the manufacturer. Do you know who makes it? I'm trying to get away from Purina.

I assume you are asking about Country Companion. If not, … oops.

This is right off the back of a bag I just bought. Not sure where Purina operates from, but a comparison to locations should be pretty easy to check.

No I don’t know who makes it.
