Re: KGB - holding ration verification

Got it. So. You want to gain about 1 lb per day. Remember that 3 lb/day Powerfill produces 1 lb gain per day. When you add other supplements to that 3 lb Powerfill it increases the daily gain above 1 lb per day. The whole thing about managing weight and keeping the pig fresh is meeting its daily nut...

Re: KGB - holding ration verification

No. That diet will result in fat more than 1 lb/day gain.

Tell me again exactly what you are trying to accomplish (besides the 1 lb per day gain).

Re: Need weight gain

To reach 220 lb the pig needs to average 1.58 lb/day and to reach 240 it need to average 2.0 lb/day. Energy (calories) is responsible for growth and spewing up growth rate. Add High Octane Heavy Weight starting at 4 oz per day and about every 3-4 days increase by 4 oz until you are feeding 12 oz/day...

If the pig seems to be too lean at any point reduce Fitter 35 by 1/4 to 1/2 lb per day and increase Heavy Weight.

Re: Another question for KGB

Depth Charge will add rib. BTW a current weight of 277, max of 300, and 35 days calculates to 0.66 lb/day. (300 - 277) / 35 = 0.66 35 days is a long time to feed Fitter 35 as it burns fat. Break it down into shorter periods of 10, 10, and 15 days: 1st 10 days: (Total daily feed; divide into 2 equal ...

Re: Holding and pushing

Hog 1 can gain about 1.6 lb/day. (280 - 225) / 35 days = 1.57 lb/day. The easiest way to do that is to feed: (Total daily feed; divide into 2 equals meals): Purina Honor 719. 2 lb High Octane Powerfill. 2 lb High Octane Depth Charge. 1/2 lb (8 oz) Questions: 1. Is Paylean banned at your show? 2. Is ...

Re: KGB - holding ration verification

Mix one day diet of each. Blend them together and feed that mix for 2 days then switch 100% to the new diet.

Re: Keeping Macros in line when using Fitter52

For only 14 days it’s not going to be a problem if were more like 45 days then you might be concerned.
