Cup waterer gravity flow?

We have a cup waterer with fresh water (pressurized) in the summer. But winters are cold and hoses freeze in the barn. Want to get away from 15gal heated buckets that they tip or get disgusting with wash back. Do the cup wateres work on gravity flow? Which type? We have the type they push a button a...

Draminski #s & silent heat

Have a gilt that at 5.5 months showed signs of cycling when we took her to the local fair: swelling, vocalization, and mounting other pigs, never did get her to stand but her mom is difficult to get to stand also and we rely heavily on the draminski to get her bred. 21 days after she was mounting ot...

Late born pigs how to push weight gain early

Pigs born later than wanted and will be 5.5 months at showtime. Would like to push their weight gain early so they are at an avg/simiar weight to rest of pigs at first weigh in (3.5 months prior to the kid's fair). If I feed the 319 longer rather than going to 519 and 719 will they gain faster? (my ...

PCV M G2 timing

The PCV M G2 can be given in a split dose at 3days and again at 3 weeks or all at 3 weeks. Is there good argument to give in the split dose vs 1 dose later in life? The gilt is UTD on all her vaccines and is not around other pigs, the town is also not a high pig population. Just thinking less invasi...

The website says Guardian is for breeding stock, but somewhere in this forum I have read posts the True Glow is good startng 2 weeks prior to farrow. I wonder if that party was prior to Guardians introduction to the line? However G...

Re: Draminski help

Thank you! I seem to do better at night than in Mornings. She is now throwing a new loop at me with mucous/drainage and standing for my daughter today and more swelling than she's ever had before.

Re: Jaw wound Hogdoc?

Thanks HogDoc. We have been with the hose, thankfully she isn't fightung us much. The necrosis seems to be sloughing itself and healing. Amazing that it is taking care of itself without infection.

Re: Farrowsure Gold B - Pig not feeling well

We just had this happen, although I am pretty sure it was FS gold (no B). Gave her shot in evening and all next day she was puny. Didn't want to eat or get up much, I had to force her up. By the 2nd day was beginning to feel better. Am I bit nervous about the 2nd round coming up. How did your gilt d...
