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?

Re: Length of tail - does it matter?

I would say it shouldn't matter, but probably plays a role in placings when they are close. If you happen to have a very competitive pig I would think you're OK, but it may give the impression your project did not come from a "reputable" breeder...whatever that might mean. This is our 4th year buyi...

Length of tail - does it matter?

I bought two show pigs from a breeder. One has the normal length docked tail and the other one is twice as long. The longer one really bothers me! Does it matter in the show ring?

2 month old gilt vomitting

We picked up two new gilts last weekend. Yesterday I noticed one vommiting. She was acting fine at that time, but later I noticed she was a little sluggish and laying around a lot. I did not take her temperature. I gave her some pepto and later some oats, which she nibbled at. She did not have diarr...

Re: paylean and fitter 52

It depends on what your pig looks like. Fitter 52 is going to burn fat fairly quickly and build some muscle. I used Fitter 52 on one this year that was getting tight early, so I decreased protein and then she got a little flabby. I knew she wouldn't handle paylean, so I used Fitter 52. You have to k...

Re: Looking for 909

She will barely eat any 809. She inhaled 909 but I can't get any. I'm in south central Texas between Houston and San Antonio.
