Why no competition for World's Best cat litter?

There're a bunch of different brands of clay litter but only one corn based litter. I would think one of these chicken feed companies could make a bundle coming out with a cheaper version of World's Best.

You have a point. I used to use only World's Best Cat litter until I started getting grain beatles. Now I use this cat litter but it is by no means cheap. I have to have it delivered. It's made out of wood by-products and green tea leaves and it also clumps and can be flushed down the toilet. So there is competition.

We've had some pretty recent topics about people actually using chicken feed as litter and it working really well. If you haven't seen those, you might want to check them out. Heck, the chicken feed companies wouldn't even have to change anything except the bag they put it in to make good money off of it.
There may not be a lot of corn based litters, but there are a lot of other non-clay litters... feline pine, swheat scoop (wheat based), yesterdays news, etc

Don't expect corn-based anything to go down in price. The only place those prices will go is up, due to ethanol production.

The cost of corn is going up but it is also affecting our other livestock feeds as well. More fields are being planted to corn for the high yield in money as compared to the other grain feeds, like oats, wheat and barley. Even hay fields are being replanted to corn for use in ethanol production. The horse industry is experiencing a severe economic crisis in the costs of feeding an equine. I'm sure the costs are increasing for other farm animal production too, and you'll see those costs covered in higher grocery store costs for the consumer...
