    If you are looking to buy call Jeff Miller at ConservFS 847 526-0007 for both bulk and bagged.

    Not sure what your price would be as part of the rate is frieght. I have been getting bulk salt from them for the past three seasons. Their prices are fair and THEY DELIVER when they say they will. Never ran into the 3-5 day waits or price hike mid season. I consider them highly reliable. I have NEVER been left without material since I switched to them.

    Where to buy.
    You go to him and pick up or he delivers?
    Can you pick up from them? at least for the bulk...don't really have any equipment to load the trucks yet...

    What are you guys paying for it from these guys? I'm gonna give em' a call but I'm sure its a little late for that right now...

    They deliver VIA semi. Not sure how is selling bulk slat out of a yard in your area but you usually get stuck to there retail hours. See if you can network with someone BIG in your area that is will to sell to you off their pile. That is how I started out with bulk until I was alble to run my own pile.

    Good luck.
