For meat, check local raw feeding mailing lists (e.g. Yahoo!) and local farms. I've found meat through my local raw feeders list and a farmer via Craigslist. Also, if you have a butcher or grocery store with an actual butcher in their meat department, they can order in bulk for a better price. For example, the small packs of turkey necks go for about $2/lb in the grocery store, but I was able to order a large case for about $0.80/lb.

Thanks for the warm welcome! I'm looking forward to finally feeling comfortable with my raw feeding skills. Lol! I am a licensed veterinary technician so I'm a bit handicapped from the get-go. All of my training tells me you're not supposed to feed raw, but due to an excellent explaination from an exceptional breeder along with further research, I decided to give it a try. We've had Dolly now for about one month. She has never had kibble. The prep in the beginning was starting to get to be a bit much but now that she can handle bigger pieces and we don't need to go crazy trimming fat it's much easier. My two biggest obstacle right now is knowing what to get as far as cuts of meet and RMBs. I have an excellent source for chicken quarters, I'm paying between 39-49cents per pound. I started adding pork last week that I found on sale. I've been trying to find a guideline or shopping list. Once I get the hang of what we should be feeding I can get a better handle on where the best place to get it will be. Luckily, I live in an area where there is much ethnic diversity so variety shouldn't really be too hard to find. I'm open to any suggestions. Thanks again!

Thanks! I've never been one to pass judgement on others and always expected the same in return. We never really had too many clients that were raw feeders but when we did the Docs always had a lecture on the why nots. I'd heard it a million times and when I found a breeder (gasp) that I was comfortable with that only feeds raw I honestly didn't know what I was going to do. I decided rather than writing it off altogether to do some research and I liked what I was learning. Dolly is doing excellent on the raw diet, so I guess we made the right choice.
