need help-gilt lost appetite after having mange

What should I treat a 200 lb gilt with and for how long, as she is not eating after she went through having mange on her? I treated her with prolate and the mange dried up, but she hasn't eaten much for the last 4-5 days and is very lethargic.

framing and maturing

I hear these terms about letting a pig frame up and mature during their growing stage. How do you do this? What per cent protein and how much feed to get them to do these things?
