i am so glad they finaly opened a TSC only about an hour from me, sure will be nice to have another place to go rather than blue seal and agway which around here are too darn expensive

well, i have to admit that i go there. but the tsc is completely homeoffice driven. they have almost no local response. in other words, they run out of cattle protein about a month before the area needs protein. no parts for hay during hay season, no special order at all. one spark plug for a tractor instead of four, no diesel fuel filters but car filters. stuff like that. if you have horses, they have the stuff, but like i say the headquarters is in horse country.

I really miss my old Central Tractor, but I have to agree that TSC is better than nothing. They've got stuff I can't get elsewhere locally, so I do shop there...make about a trip a month to get parts 'n stuff. Between "Southern States" coop, TSC, and my New Holland dealer so far I can get what I need but it does seem like they're getting more and more "citified" and less "farm store."

just watch carefull of what you buy there. they really have very few bargains. garden chemicals and hardware are much cheaper at the large home improvement centers. welding rods are a bargain at TSC, but paint is high priced. Let the buyer beware.

Is this Tractor Supply we're talking about? If so,look for great deals for the first month or so, then be careful like Hay says. Comparison shop. NEVER count on them to have all typical plumbing in stock at any given time, don't trust their PVC glue or their electric fence units. I buy a lot from them but not feed. I don't like their feed, especially hog feed. Too crumbly. Plus their dog and cat food is usually higher than Walmart. I buy pncln, needles, syringes, fence wire, posts, udder balm, some clothes, iron for the baby pigs, vitamins, powdered anitbiotics etc.

ol' hay was once bitten, twice shy about TSC. only go there when i absolutly have no other choice and then think twice about that. a few phone calls to local merchants usually gets what i want and saves a long trip to town (TSC).

The one that replaced the Central tractor store around here is kind of mis-named. Instead of Tractor supply company it ought to be named Pet supply company. Very little for machinery but one heck of a pet and horse store.

Yep lotsa horse stuff. They also have a lot of supplies for the 4-Hers for their show animals. But we priced lariats there for Jake, minimum thirty five dollars for a thirty five footer. Found one at the B Bar Z for seventeen fifty. So must take care.
