Re: Show is March 23rd 2020, Need Advice I’m Fitter 35

Depth Charge can. But, usually when fed at 1:2 lb per day it doesn’t dilute it very much.

Ultra Full is 4% fat and is designed to keep animals growing and laying down body fat.

Re: Show is March 23rd 2020, Need Advice I’m Fitter 35

It depends upon how much Fitter 35 you feed, and what else you are feeding. Here’s the dilemma; energy (calories) is responsible for every metabolic process. Everything has a caloric cost. I say that to say to increase growth rate it takes increasing the energy density of the diet. One of the reason...

Re: What feed should we start with?

The reason I ask is that not everyone one of our Showpig feeds is offered on every market. So, start the pigs with 1 bag per pig of either 319 or 519. Whichever is available in your area.

Re: Paylean Replacement

I don’t believe it’s the entire state. Yes the Ohio State Fair has and a handful of counties so far. There will be more to come. Fitter 52 is a very good replacement for ractopamine HCl (active ingredient in in Paylean). Like above poster mentioned Fitter 52 does not increase growth rate like Paylea...

Re: Help finishing show pigs

The answer is no. Pigs (or any other animal) have daily nutrient requirements that must be met. When those are not met the pig starts losing muscle, fat cover and freshness. They get “stale”. Depth Charge and Ultra Full are not designed to meet those requirements. Those products are designed for fil...

Re: 40 mins to eat 1 pound?

May have an ulcer. Three new Honor Show Chow Showpig feeds that contain technology to help with this. Or, add High Octane Alleviate.

Re: Help finishing show pigs

It sometimes takes some time to burn fat etc... depending upon how much fat is needed to burn. For the first pig if you want to speed up the process switch to 2 lb per day Fitter 52 and 1 lb of Fitter 35. However, keep a very close eye on his total body condition. Fitter 52 and Fitter 35 don’t just ...

Re: KGB-- Feeding Champion Drive and Fitter 35 together?

Yes. There are several ways to feed it. If you are trying to build muscle without burning fat, then add High Octane Heavy Wright at the same time.

Somewhere around a 2:1 ratio (1 lb Fitter 52 and 1/2 lb Heavy Weight).

Re: Fat Neck and Gut

I did respond to your PM. Fitter 52 is not going to cause an increase in weight gain. (It is not Paylean)

Re: KGB-- Feeding Champion Drive and Fitter 35 together?

If you switch out Champion Drive for Fitter 35 you probably won’t have time. However if you switch out Champion Drive for Fitter 52 it will probably work about the way you desire.

Re: Which feed this year?

By the way, because we (Purina, Honor Show Chow) have great supplements that work does NOT mean you have to feed them for the HSC Showpig feeds to work. That is ridiculous. The same guy that designed and formulated the High Octane supplements is the same PhD nutritionist that designed and formulated...

Re: Need a little advise (Paylean)

It actually does more for the pig’s top. However it does work on the rear end as well. Paylean works a little faster on the rear end.
