Would you substitute can green tripe in a raw diet if you could not get it raw? I can get Merricks before grain green tripe and it is good quality.
What did you dislike about Hare Today's Green Tripe? Green Tripe varies a great deal, no matter where it comes from based on what the cow was being fed at the time of slaughter. Some foods cause it to be much stinkier than others. If you can find a place nearby or that will ship from you which guarantees the cows are grass fed only that is ideal - corn or grain fed/finished cows will change the quality of the tripe. If grass fed only isn't an option, due to area of the country, then hay/alfalfa fed is good too.Taylor pond farms is no longer in business.
So who do you suggest to get raw green tripe from Agile GSD?
I recently purchased 50#of tripe from Hare today, and liked the quality from Taylor pond much more. I've also gotten tripe from Aplaceforpaws, and it was fine.
I really have no personal experience with TPF product, just experience with the owner and the business prior to them making their own raw foods. Before they made their own, they sold and traded rabbit meat to other raw food manufacturers for product, which they distributed.The Hare today was coarse ground, which is what I wanted. It just didn't seem as rich(more of the stomach than the contents of it) and of course it isn't consistant. One tube is brown another is green. I've been feeding tripe for over 3 yrs so I know the consistancy changes w/ what the cattle eat.
I guess I just got a really good batch from TPF and nothing has compared since! I got 60# at that time, so it lasted for several months. It was also local to me so I didn't pay for the shipping.
I always have gotten grassfed.
