I like Moorman's Alliance 3-D oil. Super easy to use and the pigs really like it. Fat cover is really nice and smooth too.

Heavy Weight also results in a better appetite. Start at 4 oz per day and about every 3-4 days increase by 4 oz until you are feeding 12 oz per day. Mix Heavy Weight with enough water to make a milk shake like consistency and then add to the feed. Paylean also increases growth rate.

Essential Feeds Uni4m 50% crude fat (smooth firm cover) and Essential Feeds Soft Silk 99% crude fat (soften a hard muscled pig). Uni4m is caramel flavored and Soft Silk is cherry flavored, so both promote appetite!
