Re: Sick pig - temp, vomitting, decreased appetite, lethargic

I would get a hold of your vet, especially so close to show, but draxxin and banamine might help.

Re: Need muscle on my gilt

So Moorman's lean maximizer work's like this:

4.5g/ton = 2 ounces per day (1oz per feeeding)
9g/ton = 4 ounces per day (2oz per feeding)

using the cup method suggested would be way over feeding. Legally you need to be feeding at least 5 lbs of 16% or higher base feed. Good Luck!

Re: Newborn piglet issue with back legs

You can usually fix this. It's called spayed leg. Research online for exact instructions, but what you do is tie the 2 legs together with just enough give to allow some flexibility. This helps get the legs working together when they are standing and walking. We just had one this last litter and with...

Re: Long Hair ????

We usually clip the body at 5/8", the head at 3/8" and then blend into the body. On the legs we usually go over with a longer guard to neaten them up, but then blend them back into the body starting at the top of the leg into the shoulder and hams. If you've done it right it should look natural. Als...

Re: Need muscle on my gilt

I personally have seen really good results from the 4.5g/per ton ration. It gets a muscle pop and weight gain with less risk of the attitude problems.

Re: Need muscle on my gilt

You might want to consider paylean and/or the final burst feed from Moormans.

Re: Which feed this year?

That's good to point out...I know for a fact that there have been plenty of pigs that have won on straight Honor Show Chow or other feeds.

What would you say sets Honor apart from other feeds?

Re: Which feed this year?

We use a combo of Sunglo as the base and then Purina and Moorman's supplements. I switched from Moorman's base feed to Sunglo for a couple of reasons. 1. I liked the inclusion of Amaferm in the feed (the main product in Sure Champ and Vita Charge) 2. I liked the higher fat content (5% vs. 3.5% in mo...

Re: Sow delivered early?

Not sure other than similar results are possible in humans. How were the piglets in terms of size and viability? What was the size of the litter?

Re: Sunglo Sumo or MoorMans MoorBody?

So...the supplements you mention are more driven towards putting fat cover on your animal. for rib shape and flank fill you need products like Purina Depth Charge and Ultra Full or Sunglo Full Tank. Keep in mind that these are fillers that might possibly drive down your ADG.
