Plus, don't forget that there's a significant difference between Corn Gluten and Corn Meal. Two different animals and totally different prices.

Hey neighbor! Alfalfa and cracked corn I get from the Rural King in Wentzville. They have sales sometimes that make it a bit cheaper. They also have milorganite for $10ish a bag, which is the cheapest I've found in the area, and urea for a good price. Soybean meal I've only found at Fenton Feed Mill. Hummerts in Maryland Heights had some of the harder to find stuff too, like SOP and K.

Does the cracked corn flow through a spreader decently?

Also-
Please tell me that cracked corn is not able to grow as corn plants....

It flows OK.

The cracking process is low-tech, and doesn't get 100% of all the corn seed. Yes, you might get a few corn plants - just mow them.
