Sportmix Dog Food?

Anyone feeding Sportmix dog food? How do you like it compared with other feeds you have used? Which blend do you feed?
Thinking about trying it - our local feed store carries it, can get the 26/18 for about $24 for 50 lbs.

I had been feeding it for a couple years ago until I start seeing some good reviews on Soutern States Advanced line of feed and then tried it on a couple of the dogs.

I switched all the dogs over to Southern States Advanced Active earlier this year.

Had a local store not carrry the SS, I'd still be feeding the SportMix. I am more impressed with the SS feed over the SportMix.

I fed it for nearly a year and it was a good feed for the price. I was paying 18$ for the 26/18.

Ive feed it for the last two years with nothing bad to say. dogs eat it well even the picky ones, plenty of energy, good stool for easy pen clean out, and a decent price. black bag in the fall winter and early spring. Green bag in the hotest part of the summer.

Fed it for awhile as it was cheaper than Black Gold. stools were good but crap stank badly.

I have since switched to Kent Active Dog since it is available closer to home. It is working out well also and looks identical to Black Gold.

Give Hi-Standard dog food a try! Go to hi-standarddogfood.com and click on distributor and then click on your state. Better food with better price

Blue Bag

I have been using this Sportmix in the blue bag 26/18 for nearly a month. So far I seem to like it. The dogs eat it well, not alot of cleanup either. The look good, maybe not as good as they did on Purina One - but half the cost.

I fed the blue bag as a puppy food. I usually feed Diamond highpro but it was to large morsel size for the puppies. The sportmix blue bag is puppy size morsels and actually has higher protein than the Diamond highpro and was a dollar or two cheaper. I went back to the Diamond after the puppies, my dogs like it a little better and its easier for me to get. But I still liked the sportmix.

im almost finished my first month on the blue bag 26/18 and my dogs look awesome and seem to have more stamina in the woods than they did before. my feist squirrel dog is the only one that doesnt seem to care for it and only eats it when she's starving for some reason. she's super picky. my english female has always been hell to keep weight on, esp. if she's hunting alot and she looks great right now on the sportmix.

My black dog did awful on it so I had to switch and have not switched back to it but have been wanting to try the blue bag. He just didnt have energy and stayed too slim.

Sportmix

Well after 2 months (I felt that was a long enough trial period) this is my opinion.
1. Dogs look good
2. Dogs seem to like it, eat it well.
3. not alot of stool, but stinks to high heaven, and dogs seem to have alot of gas, which also is terrible.
4. Price is now $26.30 for 50 lbs.
5. Only able to get it at the local feed store (mill), and they close before I get out of work, so can only get it Saturday before 11am, not very convenient.

My decision - back to Purina. For dogs not being hunted hard it is Dog Chow. For extreme cold weather or a dog that is put in the woods 5 nights a week, its Purina One.
I can get the 50lb bag at TSC for Just under $20.00 and then also get the weight circle points. Dog Chow may not be the best out there, but having tried several now over the past year, I am back to it.

Noone mentioned how much they are feeding to an average size hound. I,m not looking for coffe jar answers, i'm looking for 8. oz. measuring cups per dog per day.\
I was feeding 3.5 to 4 cups a day to 50 pound dogs in the summer time just to keep weight on them. They were all healthy and worm free. Some of the younger hounds just plain wouldnt eat it. I have fed several tons of the 26-18 and the 24-20. Alot of the batches of 26-18 varied in color and greasiness and consistency. I'm not saying its the worst feed, but definitley sub par to alot of others in the same price range. Also, hi standard would not be an upgrade. Have seen big kennels that switched to sportmix from hi standard and greatly reduced the amounts of loose and excessive stools. This is just my opinion and observations.
