    I feed Diamond feeds I have used the High energy before with no problem. The green bag Premium Adult is better. The puppy is good.
    I use Diamond Naturals Chicken and rice right now. Will use Diamond Extreme Athlete soon for hunting season.

    I have been feeding Diamond High Energy for 25+ years with no problems other then cutting it back in the summer so the dogs do not get hog fat. Good feed!

    Spini,No I am not. Let's just say I have a financial interest in it. I think it is a Great feed for the price. I was just tired of paying high prices for dog feed that is not much better if any. All the brand's mentioned here are outstanding feeds. I just thought I could save myself and my hound friends some money on the feed bill.

    I switched from value pak to diamond hi energy 24/20 I really like it. I also like the diamond puppy food too. Diamond is all I'll feed, unless my supplier quits selling it.

    I agree with [email protected], cut back in the summer or the dogs will get big as a barrel. Good luck!

    I have fed Diamond forever but always switch for the latest and greatest cheeper food. I always go back to Diamond like a damn yo-yo. Sportmix is also a good feed, mainly fed it because they gave our club thousands of dollars worth if feed over the years. I have always had good luck and my hounds have always looked and performed the best on the Diamond.
    I fed Caliber and the black Value-Pack, my hounds coats went to crap. Too bad cause it is so much cheeper. I even worked with Gene from Specialty Feeds to get it here. But had to go back to Diamond and my hounds look way better now.

    If it works better for you. I can't blame you for doing that. Some dogs do better on different feeds. I do Thank You for giving Tops and Value a try.

    Absolutely Wade, when I was feeding Sportmix I was feeding many more hounds, but I had one hound that would puke it up and just did awful on it. All the others were fine. The caliber and Value-Pack just effected 2 hounds, other 2 did fine.

    I feed Diamond Hi Energy,all my hounds love it and stools are good .Some coats are better than others. I would try Valu pak if it was available her local but not driving 2 hrs out of my way to get it or paying inflated prices

    I don't blame you LT, If they can keep there prices reasonable you should see it before long... I really like the 28/20 black bag all around, for pup's and all... I tried the 30/20 puppy food... really not much of a difference... well that's right... the 28/20 is grain free
