    Default Purina Hearty Bee Thoughts

    I saw that Purina was launching a protein supplement, and was wondering if anyone had any experience with it.

    There is no ingredient list on the webpage. Someone said the main ingredient is chicken blood. Would like to confirm.

    Yes that is what I read. Dried sprayed poultry blood
    Can someone comment on what they are after using this product? Does it have to do with essential fatty acids?

    My guess would be that the reason many haven't heard of it, and that its still pricey is that Purina is still trying to perfect it, and figure out how it performs in the real world, hence the samples to commercials. Once they are truly confident in it, then it will be pushed more, and bulk pricing will become a thing. That being said, The initial price per pound of sub isn't the deciding factor IMO. I look at what the feed conversion rates are, then factor in the cost to figure out how much it takes to "make" a frame of brood.

    No I know someone else that has way less that the 1k and he got it. I figure that if he got it I could try to.

    I think this could turn into a pr nightmare for beekeepers. Pictures of chickens being drained of blood and bees eating it. Now I know there are a lot of feeds out there that are unappealing but this does not sound like our honey eating customers would approve.

    How about for Purina's PR, they didn't spell "ask" correctly.

    Was at purina St Louis a year ago, they talked about it but would give very little details other than they had been working on it for some time. We saw about 100 hives they used for experimentation. Notice they say shb will like it less than other brands, well they certainly had lots of beetles.

    Yeah it looks like it would be a good product however their site keeps throwing my browser a weird error and I can't log back onto it. I really just wanted to see the weight of the bag, hoping it was at least 50# for that $90 price tag.
