Sow sick URINARY? Help

I have a 2 year old sow who went down Sunday and has been very lethargic since. Gets up to food twice a day but otherwise goes and lays right back down and doesn't want to get up will allow you to sit on her and doesn't allow you to push her to get up. I thought it was because she and a new sow had ...

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...

Rhinishield Tx4 or Respisure one/ER bac plus

Our local vet carries Respisure one ER bac and I have read some previous posts that recommend respisure one ER bac plus with the fostera pcv 2 (for erysipelas, myco and circo coverage). My bottle of rhinishield Tx4 outdated soon and the combo pcv m2 I used this year will not be used again after a fe...

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...

True Glo vs True Guardian

HogDoc, can you explain the differences between these 2 supplements. 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. She's also a bit crazy tonight. She was born in January she's way too old but now I'm wondering if she'...

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...

Draminski help

WE need to AI in the next cycle and have been struggling with our gilt whom is a hard one to detect estres in. I just discovered the draminski tool a few days ago and ordered. I believe we are coming out of a cycle. Last cycle she got really chatty and began swelling then continued to swell for 7 da...

Re: At what point do I hold and how

Thanks KGB. You are a absolutely right, we should've weighed! Got complacent after last year's heavy pig did fine after weigh in. He somehow only gained a average of around nd a pound a day for over 3 months on 6 pounds of 809. We did weigh him every 2to 4 weeks... We can be heavier. I was just told...

At what point do I hold and how

Have what I think is a heavy muscled barrow (but I don't really know). Born 4.5 months ago on valentines day. 45 days ago weighed 120 so I put him on same regimen as last years hog who weighed 10# more at that time and finished at 280). He now weighs 225 so gaining 2.3 per day but we have 60 days ti...
