    I'm trying to find bulk wheat to sour and bait catfish holes. I hope to find some around Dardanelle /Russelville area. Anyone know some farmers or what ever that would sell some. Does'nt need to be top quaility as we sour it anyway. Seed wheat is all I can find and it's too expensive.

    Any feed supply store can help you. Have you considered chicken scratch corn. Works great when ferminted. Good Luck on your choice.:lol: :big_smile:

    Wheat Shorts is the closest thing that I know. Can be bought at the local co-op or feed and seed store.

    I would go along with the chicken scratch. It has about all the grains in it... one of them should sour.

    you will be lucky to find farmers with wheat, most of the wheat froze in the dough stage around here.they are trying to bale it for silage, it may be better as you go farther south. boliver

    Same thing here. The frost got it and there is no grain in the head. It's all being mowed for hay. grizzly
