KGB, feed advice?

Post by cracklethepiglet » Fri Apr 01, 2022 6:28 pm

Hi,

Currently, my pig is on Show-Rite 17.5% feed, 4 lb. per day. I am looking to switch over to Purina food and supplements.

This past Sunday (March 27) she weighed 135 lb. She has an ADG of about 1.5+ lb right now. Weigh-in is probably going to be July 2, with a max weight of 280 lb, therefore only allowing her to gain about 1.58 lb/day until weigh-in.

I was recommended to put her on a 16% protein feed, add rib shape/fill out her fore flank, and add a fat cover. Can you help recommend what supplements, food, and amounts?

Thank you.

I was thinking about doing 2lb of powerfill, 2lb of 819, 8 oz depth charge, now ultra full (I think she needs so lower third help), and heavy weight per day (not sure on amounts for ultra full and heavy weight yet). Will the powerfill and 819 combination be okay for the next 90 days? And also, she seems to like her food a lot less when it is dry. Is it okay to wet it?

I’m sorry for the late response. I quit checking this site due to no traffic.

Yes Powerfill and 819 will work (2 lb of each per day).

When adding Heavy Weight reduce the 819 by the same amount of Heavy Weight you add. Just add Depth Charge in addition to what you are feeding as Depth Charge is a filler and doesn’t cause extra growth.
