Re: Slow feeder/temperamental feeder

Sometimes on slow eaters you can try wet feeding them. Some absolutely love the feed wet. You just need to make sure you are mixing at the right consistency. Not to sloppy and not to dry. If to dry the feed will swell and get very gluey and hard for them to get out of the feeder. If to wet it is lik...

Re: New Show mom needs help

I don't know where you live but check with your feed store or if you have a Tractor Supply around. See if you can get a product called Bounce Back. It is specifically designed to help get animals back on feed. You can offer to her mixed according to directions in a bucket of water. Like kgb said wat...

Re: matrix stroage

She needs to be cycling before you use Matrix. Matrix won't make them cycle, it actually stops them from cycling while they are on it and you need to feed at least 14 days, once you withdraw it they cycle within 5-10 days. That said if she isnt cycling it wont make her.

Re: To induce or wait it out

You can use lutalyse and no it won't interfere with them if they are already starting on their own.

Re: Unbalanced barrow - need advice

Unfortunately, it sounds like the reason he is heavy in his shoulders and his butt muscles are underdeveloped is because he has a problem in his hips or other joints in his back legs. He is compensating by putting more of his weight forward unto his shoulders and his butt muscles have atrophied from...

Re: New antibiotic rules Hog Doc, KGB, Darrin

MTBKMOM, Lindners just announced that all their baby pig feeds (600, 603, 606 and 612) will be switching to the CTC/Denagard combo. Previously I believe the 603-612 were all medicated with Mecadox and Banminth and only the 600 with the CTC/Denagard. That being said, did you hear the "Denagard only" ...

NOT COOL AT ALL! The only time someone comes without you being there is ONLY when you give them permission. He did not have your permission.

Re: New antibiotic rules Hog Doc, KGB, Darrin

It is my understanding that you will need a rx for water medications as well. You would at least cut out the feed manufacturer by doing water medications.

Re: Gilt's 1st Litter / Milk ?

Why do you think she doesn't have much milk? They will only have milk when they are calling their pigs. Check her when she is calling her pigs, she more than likely is milking just fine if she is eating and drinking and feels good.
