Help! KGB. Gaining Weight!

Post by showwinner » Wed May 16, 2018 8:55 pm

Have pigs weigh 115 pounds.Fair in 60 days.Few of them harder muscled.Feeding 809 but don’t seem like gaining much.Should I feed 709 instead?Which number will they gain faster on?Dont want them to get tight in movement when they walk.They always eat and are on self feed.

Not KGB, but my $.02

Typically gain faster on 809 or 909 if you have access. Worm them with something different than the last time, make sure they have plenty of water. More water = more feed intake = gain.

Good luck!

How much are they eating? Also, Pigs don’t gain 2 lb/day everyday of their life. They gaining slowly at first (12 lb pig) and the. Gain faster with age and weight.

Some times people want Pigs weighing around 100 lb to gain 2 lb/day. Very few of them will do that.
