A Red Pine Mountain LogoWhen I think of homesteading, I think of animals.  Do you have a flock of laying hens?  A couple of horses in the pasture?  Perhaps you are raising cattle or sheep or goats, rabbits or pigs?  Whatever the kind of animals you have on your homestead, if you're like me the health of your animals is of prime importance.  And, good health starts with good feed.  I also want my feed to be cost effective.  To me that means my animals must enjoy and eat the food (I have some very picky eaters) and the food should be a quality product at an affordable price.

When the opportunity presented itself for Red Pine Mountain blog to participate in the Purina 60 Day See The Difference Challenge, I was excited and I hope after I explain it to you, you'll be excited as well. 

Here's a synopsis of The Purina 60 Day See The Difference Challenge according to Purina's website:

"Try Purina feed for 60 days and you'll see the difference in your animals or we'll buy back the feed."

Wow, not only will Purina buy back the feed if you don't see a difference in your animals but they also provide great money saving coupons to help with purchase costs.  And, if you decide you love the Purina feeds (I sure do), you can enroll in their Purina Difference Seasonal Rewards program and receive additional money savings coupons on feed with every season.

I thought the Purina 60 Day See The Difference Challenge sounded like a great opportunity and I decided to switch my flock and my herd of horses to Purina feeds.

My hens have had a busy spring hatching and raising babies and to be honest, they looked a little ragged from their efforts.  I decided to start them on Purina Layena Sun Fresh Recipe.  Layena Sun Fresh Recipe appealed to me because it is made from natural plant based ingredients and is free of animal proteins and animal fats.  But the big question was would my picky flock eat it.  They've been known to turn up their beaks at many a feed.  Was I amazed when I discovered they love it.  They ran right over to their feed trough and ate as if they were piglets.  And most importantly, within a month of eating the Layena, my hens were back in peak condition with lustrous feathers and they were once again laying tasty eggs.

Lisa, I'm so glad you're going to give it a try. The coupons really help as do the seasonal coupons. The Flock Block is amazing. It's so nicely put together that the birds can't destroy and eat it in seconds like some of the other ones on the market. Thanks so much and I really appreciate your taking the time to leave me a comment.

I love the magazine Grit, and I am going to try the Purina. I never have before because of the expense. I never even new that they had a flock block! That sounds like something I should try!

Hi MBD, Yes, they do have rabbit food! Hope you'll join me and hope you'll enter the giveaway next week. And one of the other advantages to me of using Purina feeds is I get to go to Tractor Supply and it's one of my special favorite outings. Dave, wish we could have a cat but with 6 big old house doggies and an ever shrinking square footage (as we rip our house down), I'm afraid a cat would be in trouble. I do love cats though! I also hope you will enter the giveaway next week and thanks so much to both of you for visiting me!

Hi MW, sounds like Purina is a good thing for you and the great group of critters at RPM. Love to see their pics and look forward to your progress with the challenge. Barbara and I don't have any animals, other than our cat, Louise, and she thinks she's really a person. So, we can't really participate in any meaningful way. I will, however, forward your blog to friends and neighbors that do have animals. Have a wonderful day on the mountain.
