Re: Gilts with little appetite

In terms of products that have always worked for us, we use Vita Charge Liquid Boost and the Vita Charge paste (now a gel). You have to feed the boost everyday, but I swear by it. I use a syringe to draw it out and squirt it directly in their mouth. I've seen my pigs on it and off it and it works!

Re: Barrow off feed ???

In terms of products we have always used Vita Charge liquid boost or the Vita Charge paste with really good results.

Also, we usually have to short feed a few feedings to get them back on it. This all assumes there is nothing going on health wise.

Re: Paylean question

Yes 2 meals with the paylean split into the 2 meals.

Absolutely should split pigs when feeding. We usually split permanently at 100lbs.

Re: 5 days post partum, sudden change in breathing

I had a similar issue and thought that maybe she had an infection, but it turned out to be the heat. The mamas like it cool. A fan would be helpful...maybe a spray down with water a few times a day?

Re: Help us with our challenge for end of August fair!

it can be done...especially with a good eater. Be careful to not overdo it with the paylean. HI fat and lower protein will help with growth also. The thing you have to be careful with a fat supplement is that it will actually fill the energy needs of your pig sooner and may cause him to not eat as m...

Re: 197 pound hamp needing to put cover

I also like using the higher fat feeds that are offered by Moorman's and Lindners. Sunglo is also slightly higher fat content in their base show feeds. Another thing to consider is dropping your protein percentage to help soften up your hog. We've always used Sunglo Sumo and really liked it. You hav...

I'm not sure you need to be holding that hard. You get 1.92 ADG until your show, not count transportation loss.

Re: Diarrhea in show hogs (hog doc help please!)

Tylan is my recommendation and make sure you clean (disinfect actually) the pen well.
