Part of me says too many grains before the ingredient list, but 25% protein is decent enough and better than most.

What does your dog say?? If you are happy with how your dog looks, then great!! Up to you if the locally sourced is worth the cost.

Thanks for the reply, dogs love it, eat it all without any added goodies mixed in :)

I think they are doing good on it so far - our newest addition has gained a few well needed pounds in the last few months so all is well.
