Ive been searching all over the net for a recipe to make dry kibble in mass quantities I really could not afford to fed my 1 big and 2 medium size dogs the quality stuff.The stuff I give them is Pedigree but on researching most all of the dry stuff is made mostly made with corn meal and God knows what else which does them no good at all.It should really be more rice,bran and so on.The next problem in trying to create a recipe is to get the right amount of protein and vitamins etc.I feel bad I cant give them better.
I figure if you can make healthy dog biscuits you should be able to make a healthy dry dog food. Any ideas?I have recipes that you cook up for dogs but that would be too time consuming.

I can buy any food at wholesale, but the one I feed is Canidae because it's holistic AND economical. I look at it as a pay me now or pay me (the vet) later kind of thing. BTW, Pedigree is preserved with stuff that causes birth defects in lab rats.... the BHTs or something like that on the label.

Prior to Canidae I did the raw/BARF thing for 3-1/2 years, but on my own terms. I mixed a LOT of people food into they're diet, which wasn't hard at all being single and always cooking enough for three (it seemed). Just separate their stuff out before hitting it with all the spices .

Raw diet supporters swear by it, kibbleheads say it's a fad and no long term studies have been done. The facts are if you go back to the '50s and prior way of feeding, table scraps and let the dog fend for himself (this is where the raw comes in), it is very proven.

I could not imagine making enough kibble for your own dogs to eat. IMO you would be better off leaving the stuff raw and unbaked.
