    wow!

    going though premier1 (inexpensive) I went to checkout and my total for the supplies was $75... I went to look at shipping, i would be $78 :roll:
    not cool!

    I've gone through:
    Jeffers
    Caprine
    Hoeggers
    Sheepman
    PBS

    and the shipping is OUTRAGEOUS!! :veryangry: LOL!
    it's supposed to be free shipping on orders over $50 at premier1- but not to Alaska. anyone have any links to sites that at least carry:

    CDT
    Syringes
    Needles
    Breeding Harness / crayons
    Selenium vit/e
    etc.......?

    I'll look those up, also found dairyhealthusa.com
    a breeder up here says shipping is actual price- so i ordered a catalog as their site isnt very informative.

    What about http://www.tractorsupply.com? Any differences in prices, you might still save, if the shipping is reasonable. Also, could family/friend purchase the items from one of the sites with free shipping and then send the items to you in one of those flat rate shipping boxes from the post office? Pain I know to do it this way, but might be worth the savings from shipping.
