All of our deer pellets start with a mechanically extracted peanut meal base. We use peanut meal rather than other protein concentrates due to the highly palatable peanut flavor and smell, excellent for attracting deer and keeping them coming back to the feeder. Our deer pellets are fortified in vitamins & minerals and available in bulk or bagged form. Deer feeds are not that radically different from other types of feeds so we use the same low margin on our deer feeds as our commercial cattle feeds. If our floor stocked deer pellets do not meet your requirements give us a call, click, or visit to find out about creating a custom deer pellet that fits the needs of your operation. Whether you need an attractant type feed for hunting or a high fiber complete feed for confined stock, we have the experience and expertise to create the ration you need. With a custom ration there is no least cost formulating and your formula will not be changed without your approval, this ensures consistency from purchase to purchase. Our nutritionist is happy to provide references on our satisfied customers.
 
Whitetail Deer - Big bucks $$ for bigger bucks?  Is it really necessary?

Question:
We have a large high fenced deer operation and have been using a really high dollar deer feed to supplement with.  We have excellent genetics in our deer but they do not seem to be growing like we think they should in body mass and horn.  Can you recommend a good deer pellet for us to use?


Answer:
In my opinion most deer feeds are way over priced for what they are. To put it bluntly there is a lot of sensationalism in the deer feed business. It is big money and big profits for a lot of companies selling these feeds. High dollar advertising and pretty bags cost a lot of money.  This does not mean though that the feed is all that great. A good deer feed should not cost a fortune. At Gorman Milling we put the same margin on our deer feeds as any other feed.  I have seen some products from competitors that cost as much as $100 to $200 dollars more per ton than ours. Simply put that is a shame!  Most of our deer rations are custom formulas. Many producers come in and sit down with me to discuss their needs and goals, how they feed, at what level they feed, their browse conditions, etc.... From there we design a custom deer pellet to specifically fit their operation. Also, when we make a custom formula it is a locked in formula. This means there is no least cost formulating to it. It is your custom formula and no one will be messing with the ingredients or changing them up from time to time.  Come in and visit with me about a custom formula for your operation and let me show you what a good deer pellet supplement can be. Some deer producers have a personal wildlife consultant.  If they will contact me we can mix according to their specification if need be.

20% Premium Deer Pellets
Analysis: Form Protein% Fat% Fiber% Medication
  3/16” pellet 20 3.5 20 None
Feeding Rate: To be fed to deer as a supplement to forage and native browse. Always provide plenty of fresh clean water. Keep feed in cool dry storage.
Features & Benefits: For hunters and game operations that desire a 20% protein pellet. This product contains a peanut meal base; the strong smell of peanut meal is great for attracting deer and keeping them coming back to the feeder. Well fortified in trace minerals including several chelated forms (chelated minerals are bound to amino acids, this helps the animal absorb and utilize more of the mineral in the body). Contains added vitamins A, D, and E, a 2:1 calcium to phosphorus ratio, and rumen bypass fat. Bypass fat is a form of fat that is not degraded as it passes through the rumen before it is absorbed in the intestines, therefore, a lower fat content in a feed with bypass fat can be just as effective as a higher fat feed with traditional fat sources. This feed contains a large amount diamond v yeast culture to assist in proper rumen fermentation and reduce any rumen upsets. Contains Tasco™ (for greatly increased immunity protection, antioxidant properties, slower metabolism and lower body temperature causing the animal to gain more from the same amount of feed and deal with stress better, microbe population in the rumen is optimized as well as the tissue lining the intestines) and ground yucca which acts as an anti-inflammatory for sore joints.
