Re: How much paylean should I feed?

If you are worried about weight gain dont limit her eating. Give her all she will eat in 20 minutes. Some pigs take more than 6 pounds to gain. There are plenty of product you can use to shape your pigs when you get closer to your end weight goal. Easier to slow them down than make them grow

Re: Sick pig **help please**

When was the last time you wormed him. Also try using a different bedding. Could be allergic. With all those antibiotica i am wondering if it isnt one of those things.

Re: Feeding a 105 lb pig for show in mid Jan

I dont know lindner products, but my advice for you would be to feed him what he cleans up before the next feeding and keep him growing till you get closer to end goal weight. In my experience it is easier to hold if too heavy than put weight on if light.

Re: pg 600, matrix and heat cycles

21 days is just the average cycle. I have had them cycle at 17 days or 24 days. You will have to watch. Best way is to monitor for a couple cycles

Boar that will incrrease rate of gain

I have a black exotic sow that was shown as a gilt and did quite well. Her offspring this past year all did extremely well including one champion. The problem is that at 7 months they all strugled to make our minimum weight of 240 no matter how hard we pushed. What i am looking for is a boar that wi...

Re: Rebreeding

No guarantee. If she has enough condition she could cycle on her own in those 2 weeks. Then she wouldn't cycle at 5 days

Re: eating dirt

To me sounds like she has dead pigs in her. All you can really do is keep doing what your doing. This could take some time if she comes out of it. Just keep food with her and keep her hydrated. She is going to be a sick pig for awhile. When she does come out of it i am not sure she will be easy to g...

New 19 feeds ?

I was wondering what the research was telling when you went away from the pellets and made them all into meal form. I always felt they cleaned the pellets up better, had less waste, and less dust and coughing. Still feeding it just wondering why the change.

Re: Babies or no babies

To me it looks like she bagged up but it doesn't look like she nursed. Could have been pseudo pregnancy or they transfered litter to another sow.

Re: World Pork Expo Cancellation

To me canceling expo is very precautionary, but if that is what it takes to keep that virus out of the US i am all for it. If that bug would make it here you probably could forget about showing any pigs for a long time. Hopefully it will only be for one year.

Re: 2 Lame pigs and one with a cough

Those two breeders you bought from should be ashamed for letting pigs off their farm who arent healrhy. I have never let a pig off my farm that i wouldn't have bought myself. They give everyone who does a good job a bad name. I cant help you with the lame pigs, but the one with the cough you might t...

Re: Heavy structured cross boar

Every stud has something that fits that description. What you have to do is find the stud that you want to work with and within your price range. I have a litter of chainbreakers from southern gold that would fit that description plus some.
