Feeding a 105 lb pig for show in mid Jan
Posted: Sun Oct 27, 2019 7:30 am
We got our FFA show pig on Oct 7th. He weighed in at 85 lbs on Oct 10th. I started feeding him 1/4 cup of oats and 1.4 lbs of 611 both am and pm. He has gained fast and looks amazing. He weighed 105 3 days ago so I have started moving him onto linder 632. Right now I am at 1.6 lb total feed am and pm with half being 611 and half being 632 plus 1/4 lb oats. I don't want him to be too big by sale time but I know he needs to gain more. Is the amount I am feeding him okay for his weight? Also, should I feed him straight 632 or should I move him to where he is eating a mix of 685 and 632? I am familiar with livestock but have never had a show pig so any advice is appreciated. Thanks in advance!
