Re: Sow not eating well BIG litter

I’m not sure beer is going to do much for very young piglets. Purina Honor First Wean 319 is available in your area. That’s what I recommend for the piglets. If they are very you g (less than 18 days or so, I suggest mixing milk replacer (make milk and offer the milk first and then after 3-4 days be...

Re: need to gain weight

What are you feeding (feeds and supplements... what are they and how much per day)?

How is she watered? (How does she receive water?)

Has she always been small? Or was she sick at one point?

Re: Ground Feed Suggestions

I suggest using Purina HONOR Showpig Mixer (formerly Showpig Premix) instead of Sow Mix. Sow Mix doesn't provide all the vitamins. It is designed to add to an existing grow finish premix to fortify for sows. The formula you listed is missing most of the minerals and vitamins needed. Replace both Sow...

Re: Need help to get wider!!! Fast

Well, it appears no one has or is going to answer. I'll take a shot at it. Width comes from 2 things: Genetics - the skeleton is naturally going to pull or push apart as the pig grows because that is the way it is made. And, in this case if the pig doesn't have width in it's genetics it's not going ...

Re: Ground Feed Suggestions

Some questions:
- what did you feed last year?
- what part of the country (state) are you located in?
- by “feed recipe” what are you referring to?

Thanks

Re: KGB help Fitter 35

Powerfill is the original product for managing weight gain.
3 lb/day = 1.0 lb/day gain

If you need less:
(Total daily feed; divide into 2 equal meals):
Powerfill. 2 lb
Champion Drive. 1 lb
Depth Charge. 1/2 lb (8 oz)
The pig should gain about 0.75 lb per day.

Re: Gain weight

Just some thoughts (and questions): - what is Thomas Moore? - if you’ve had 2 pigs that needed to be pushed in the last 2 years, I suggest looking at your program: - are you purchasing pigs that are too young? - are the pigs getting sick doing the way? - what is your management program like? - I wou...

Re: Locked up pig

Three things can cause this: 1. Stress gene. If it’s this the pig usually does 2. A gene in the Duroc and Hampshire breeds (usually not fatal) 3. Lactic acid build up in the muscle, couple with either calcium or potassium depletion. There is a product called lactanase. (NOT lactase). Lactanase break...

Re: KGB HELP - Holding Weight/Lose pounds

In any event the way to slow and possibly lose some weight is to feed:
(Total daily feed; divide into 2 equal meals):
high Octane Fitter 35. 3 lb
High Octane Depth Charge. 8 oz

NO other feed

Re: "ABC Supplement Formulated to Target XYZ Body Part"

A few answers: Fitter 35 and Fitter 52 don’t target belly fat. Not sure where that one came from. Game on is a fat product It isn’t just protein, fat and fiber content it’s the ingredients that make up the supplement. Otherwise just increasing soybean would result in the same thing. Which is not the...

Re: KGB Purina suggestions on holding

I apologize that I didn’t see this earlier. But, I have to confess the feeding plan you described is very confusing. If you do the math with amount of weight each pig can gain and the number of days left it looks like this: 150 lbs / 100 days = 1.5 lb / day gain 140 lbs / 100 days = 1.4 lb / day gai...
