Which supplements?

Post by tayrob2012 » Mon Jun 22, 2020 8:49 am

We have 250 pound barrow. Moderate muscle but would like to see him fill out more through his ribs and improve his muscle a little. Currently eating 819 and 1 lb of Champion Drive. Weigh ins are 16 days away with a weight limit of 300. Any suggestions on what I should add to make him fill out more and make his muscles really pop but also keep him gaining around 2 pounds a day.

For rib shape use HIgh Octane Depth Charge. Start at 8 oz per day if needed increase to 16 oz per day in about 4 - 5 days.

High Octane Champion Drive should give you help with muscle. But, it's not overnight. It takes at least 30 days. High Octane Fitter 52 does work much faster. You might add 1 lbs per day Fitter 52 from now through show time. However pay attention to fat cover (body condition). If the pig looks like it is losing too much or if the pig doesn't have much now, then also add High Octane Heavy Weight at 8 oz per day when feeding Fitter 52.
