Quick Weight gain

Post by Prouddaddy223 » Wed Mar 20, 2019 6:44 pm

We have 3 pigs for county show. Show weigh in is in 13 days. 2 of 3 weigh 175. Third one is at 162
162 has gained 10 lbs in last week
One of the 175 has gained 15
And the other gained 20. All in the last week. We are feeding about 8-9 lbs per day. Need to weigh 225 minimum for weigh in. Any suggestions???

8 to 9 lbs per day per pig? What feed(s) and supplements are you feeding?
