Re: Brushes, Skin products, and DIYs

With dark pigs they look better if they are really dark. In order to get that you will need them to get some sun. We also use a stiff rice brush a few times a week to really exfoliate their dead skin. Below is a link to a good article about this on Sure Champ's web site. You can find many articles l...

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.
