Re: Blown out look

Add high octane depth charge. It’s a filler, expands in their belly and doesn’t affect weight gain. If you’re wet feeding add it on top so they eat it first. Usually once it starts expanding, they won’t eat it.

Sick pig - temp, vomitting, decreased appetite, lethargic

Went to feed our pigs last night. One came to the feeder, took a couple of bites and then walked away and layed down. She vomitted some mucous a couple of times. Her temp was 103.8. She just wanted to lay around, but would get up if I went into her stall. She drank a little water. I gave her Baytril...

Re: KGB-- Feeding Champion Drive and Fitter 35 together?

Will the Fitter 52 burn cover from the rest of the body in this time too? Really just need to trim up the jowl area.

KGB-- Feeding Champion Drive and Fitter 35 together?

I know the difference between the two. I have a gilt that I am managing weight on. She could use a little more muscle expression and her neck/jowl cleaned up a little. I am already feeding 1 lb Champion Drive along with 2 1/2 lbs of Powerfill, 8 oz Depth Charge and 8 oz Ultrafull. My show is in 17 d...

Need help with a feeding plan for last 60 days

KGB - you have helped me greatly in he past! This is our last year of showing. We have two gilts, but one is very heavily muscled and developed a joint issue and will likely not be shown. The other gilt weighs 183 with 62 days to our show. Max weight is 275. She is currently eating 6 lbs. of 819 and...

Re: How much paylean should I feed?

Has the pig been dewormed? That should be done monthly. Feed her all she will eat. I had one last year that was a slow grower. The last 5-6 weeks before our show I gave her paylean for a week-10 days and then stopped for 3 days and then paylean again for 7-10 days and then stopped for 3 days. I kept...

Is there any help for this pig?

Been struggling with this gilt for almost a month. She started limping on her left rear. We gave her lincomix and dex for 5 days. We also decreased her feed intake and lowered her protein from 16 to 14%. Slight if any improvement. She is currently on sow feed - 12%, two joint supplements and is conf...

Tylan 200 and Baytril together?

I was told to administer Baytril and Tylan 200 for 4 days to a pig that we suspect has Myco arthritis. I see Tylan is supposed to be injected 2 x a day. Is it safe to give Tylan 200 and Baytril at the same time. It does not appear that they contain the same medication. I have already done Linco and ...

Re: New 19 feeds ?

KGB; The 819 that I have been feeding this show season is pelleted. Is Purina still making the pellets in the 819 or am I getting old feed?
