Re: Supplement help

What is your goal weight? Not sure why you are limiting your pig to only 4 lbs a day. That diet is deficient in Lysine and is not enough to finish out most show pigs. You need to feed way more.

Re: Dex and tests

Dex is an 8 day withdraw. Since Dex is a prescription drug, and I'm guessing you got it with a vet script, you may want to ask the show about it, prescribed by a licensed vet.
