Vitalin is a cheap muesli style dog food many anglers find very effective, especially for pre-baiting. This gear consists of cereals and some meaty content, working particularly well with molasses and sweetcorn. Considering most tailor made groundbaits cost between £3 and £4 a kilo these days, it makes sense to look at bulk style animal feeds to save a few bob. Layers Mash (chicken feed) is another good bulk groundbait alternative.
