Last week weight gain

Post by J Cooper » Thu Jun 24, 2021 8:01 am

Hello I’m not gaining enough weight per week that I’m wanting to. Last Wednesday my Pig weighed 160 pounds and this Wednesday he weighed 168 pounds. I am feeding 5 pounds of 816 show chow,1 pound of rolled oats and 12 ounces of heavy weight split at 2 different feedings.The borrow looks great wouldn’t change nothing about him super square. He’s is out of Breaking Bad [Thompson Brothers] x Dirty Love’n x On target off a Cobb sow. What else can I do to help this barrow gain weight ?After this bag of 816 I have two bags of magic bullet lined up.

I would drop the rolled oats to 1/2 lb per day. There is already a large inclusion of ground steam rolled oats in 819.

No his pen is not too big. But being sick does impact weight gain
