Ever Wonder What 8000lbs of Kibble Looks Like??

It looks like this -




And this is what it looks like all stacked in the garage -




For those wondering, we go through about 40 lbs of kibble per day - more of course when the team is in heavy training.

And yes, every single kibble of the 8000 lbs is Eagle Pack!!!!

20% Free per bag. That's a lot of free Kibble.

How long will that last?

And I thought my friend & I got a good deal when we go in together on 200#. Good grief Karen, you need a forklift to feed the dogs !!

I can tell you that it's certainly fun to unload the trucks and put it in the garage without it all falling down. It's a good workout.

Are the contents of the white bags the same or different from the orange bags?

Don't ya love the "Bonus Bags" You pay for 40 lbs and they package it to make it look like you are getting a bonus... Wish they would update the packaging.... No Bonus, Rob, that is how the 40lbs bags are packaged for some reason.
So I had my son punch it up on the calculator. 200 bags and then we go thru 17 bags per month with our 40 dogs and so that would be almost a year supply for our kennel!

That's a common sight at our place when we stock up on food for our three dogs for the long southern California winters :-)

Hey, what's with the trailer.
I had to use the old dog truck.:-)
And i agree Kathryn, you do get a great work out unloading it.

WOW, what a load of dog food. I've been feeling really good about punching the BARK button once a month to help----looks like a tiny bit in that stack, but I know that every little bit HELPS.

Well Chris - this was a double order compared to the ones we got when you were here - and we had to pick it up in Edmonton. The old dog truck would have had to do it in 3 - 4 trips and I don't think it has it in it!

I've had alot of questions on the different bags.
The orange bags are the standard Eagle Power that all the dogs here eat pretty much from birth to death. The white bags are MVP (Maximum Vitality Performance) - a 35% protein/ 25% fat diet that the dogs eat in heavy training/racing.
This is the 'new Ultra' - for those of you that were familiar with Ultra.

Wow! That is a lot of dog food! I don't think I have used that much in my lifetime. May have to start keeping track, lol
