Re: Skin lesion? Scratch? (Help, new show mom!)

That looks like it could be the start of mites.They usually start on the belly and arm pit areas. The best thing we have used is Dectomax. It takes care of internal and external parasites. Your best bet is to give the shot. It's the most effective way to give the medicine. There is a product called ...

Re: Need muscle on my gilt

So Moorman's lean maximizer work's like this:

4.5g/ton = 2 ounces per day (1oz per feeeding)
9g/ton = 4 ounces per day (2oz per feeding)

using the cup method suggested would be way over feeding. Legally you need to be feeding at least 5 lbs of 16% or higher base feed. Good Luck!

Re: Newborn piglet issue with back legs

You can usually fix this. It's called spayed leg. Research online for exact instructions, but what you do is tie the 2 legs together with just enough give to allow some flexibility.

Re: Long Hair ????

We usually clip the body at 5/8", the head at 3/8" and then blend into the body. On the legs we usually go over with a longer guard to neaten them up, but then blend them back into the body starting at the top of the leg into the shoulder and hams. If you've done it right it should look natural. Als...

Re: Need muscle on my gilt

I personally have seen really good results from the 4.5g/per ton ration. It gets a muscle pop and weight gain with less risk of the attitude problems.

Re: Which feed this year?

That's good to point out...I know for a fact that there have been plenty of pigs that have won on straight Honor Show Chow or other feeds.

What would you say sets Honor apart from other feeds?
