Dog food

Recommended Posts

I normally go to the slaughter house a 60 mile round trip and buy £100 /£150 of meat for my dogs its 90 pence a kilo but spend £100 and it goes down to 70 pence a kilo 

i normally just fill one 6 foot freezer but ive 100s of 1&2 kilo plastic tubs i get from work , So i was thinking i could get more meat fill the tubs and sell it on .Not wanting to be greedy at the 90 pence a kilo mark ? for folk who cant or wont go to the slaughter house it would only mean i would be using more freezers but ive 3 and they normally free up during the summer . is it vivable or can anybody see any pitfalls 

I just take turns going with a mate every other month as before i went for a few lads and they would hardly collect there order , but this would be weight and in tubs frozen  and if i got left with it i could use it ?.

What meat do you get? Assume it’s not got bone and offal added? 
 

I feed raw but it’s got bone and offal in it to make a complete ready mix.

Raw mince ,  cooked mince , chunks hearts , liver . kidneys , lungs  and as much free bones as you want four to a bag two large two small 

if i covered my fuel i would be happy but im worried i would need a waste licence if i was selling some ??

Good idea if you've got the right customers, if it was me I would be sounding out some decent customers 1st before I loaded up, where in the country are you?

I bet its plucks, tripe and the like. 

Nope you can buy the lungs separate but for some reason they don't sell tripe or sheep ?. As i wanted sheep hearts to feed the dogs 

They do horses but they go to a safari park they do stuff from the safari park but they go into the incinerator 

Seen some odd stuff there giraffe ect but when they catch you looking the stop and hide the bodys with diggers or wagons LOL

Greyshill, it's good stuff I've fed it for years, to be honest I always cook it up 1st just to be safe

But why cook raw food ?. , i feed a can of dog food mixed in with pilchards once a week as a bit extra and for the omega 3 oil and somebody said the tomato sauce  reduces the acid in there urine , but i think they look good on the raw feeding
