Re: Stiff in the hind end

It could be. More than likely it’s structural if he started after being put on concrete. Get some Therma Flex and mix it 50:50 with water in a spray bottle. Twice a day spray his shoulders top down and to the ground. Spray his top from shoulders back. And spray from his hip loin junction everything ...

Re: Close on weight

What do you mean “close on weight”? Too light or too heavy?

Re: KGB, feed advice?

I’m sorry for the late response. I quit checking this site due to no traffic. Yes Powerfill and 819 will work (2 lb of each per day). When adding Heavy Weight reduce the 819 by the same amount of Heavy Weight you add. Just add Depth Charge in addition to what you are feeding as Depth Charge is a fil...

Re: Need 50 lbs

If he is eating 5-6 lb per day and it’s a good feed that is all you need to gain 1.67 lb/day (50 lb in 30 days)

Re: GOLDEN TICKET INFO.... KGB

Sorry, I just saw this. Champion Drive will produce more muscle. You can feed both at the same time. But, if you are wanting just muscle then feed Champion Drive.

Re: FFA - Hampshire Barrow Diet

If he’ll eat that much of each yes. Decrease the base feed by the same amount of supplement(s) you increase.

Re: Need to Hold HARD! Help!

But “padding” I’m assuming you are talking about fat cover. If so, feed:

(Total daily feed; divide into 2 equal meals):
High Octane Fitter 35. 3 lb
High Octane Depth Charge. 8 oz

He should gain about 0.3 lb per day or about 5-6 lb in 19 days.

Re: Flattening out top

You can feed more Champion Drive if you want. I have fed 2-3 lb/day in the past. I just wanted / needed more top etc.... Also to “flatten” (I’m assuming the pig is a little high topped) try mixing either Absorbine or Therma Flex with water half and half (half water half Absorbine/Therma Flex) and sp...

Re: GOLDEN TICKET INFO.... KGB

Golden Ticket is extruded (like pet food), 16.5% protein, 6% fat, very high energy (calories), and extremely palatable. Golden Ticket produces mass (both muscle and fat cover). It works fairly fast 2-3 weeks. Feeding rate for pigs is 1-3 lb/day as a topdress and can also be fed as the sole diet. The...
