Which feed and supplements?

Post by KSUCody » Mon Apr 13, 2020 9:58 am

We have a high muscle gilt and a light muscle barrow. Only weight 70# and 65#. Have 90 days to potential county fair, min weight is 220. What feed and supplement should we start using? The feed they have been on the last month doesn’t seem to be gaining them much or softening up the heavy muscle gilt.

819 for the heavy muscled pig and 719 for the pig needing help with muscle.

What about any supplements? Should we start them on something now or do it later on

I would wait until they are past 100 lbs.

Add High Octane Heavy Weight for the heavy muscled gilt. Start at 4 oz per day, and in about 4-5 days increase to 8 oz per day. Once she reaches 150 lbs or more increase Heavy Weight again to 12 oz per day.

For the light muscled barrow add High Octane Champion Drive. Feed 1 lbs per day.
