Seems like a decent food and a local feed store sells a 35 pound bag of food for $33 which is less then a dollar per pound, and it'd be better then the dog chow I'm currently feeding them (Swapped back to it from Diamond Naturals the dogs flat out looked like chocolate!).

Also this is for a 40 pound two year old intact Lab/Mountain Cur mix and a 9 year 19 pound male intact Beagle.

Anybody ever feed this?

It is a good food for the price, IMO. If you can afford it and the dogs do well on it, perfect. Diamond is the manufacturer and they have had recalls over the years, so some people do not like them. I imagine they have much stricter quality controls now than they used to.

I have fed it to foster dogs and to my dog over the years. Also fed California Natural-- similar ingredients, different manufacturer, similar price.
