    I am seeking a source for feed grade diatomaceous earth, preferably in 25 lb bags or larger. I am in north Florida, but willing to drive anywhere in a 200 mile radius or willing to do mail order. Been having a problem even finding the tiny little bags anymore. Please send me your sources. Thanks.

    Yes, 50# bag for $17.00, but the shipping is costly. I believe I'm going to pay about $30 to have the 50# bag sent to me, but I checked at the local feed stores, and nobody could get it. A 50# bag should last me a while as the only animals getting it will be 10 goats and 1 horse.
