need to gain weight

Post by showpig123 » Tue Feb 23, 2021 12:14 pm

my gilt is currently 170lbs weigh ins is in 21 days where minimum weight is 220lbs.

all the shows she’s gone to the judges say they love her she’s just small compared to the others in her class.

i just need to make weight for the show any suggestions. currently, she’s being very picky and won’t eat. she’ll eat for a minute or so then have no interest in her feed

What are you feeding (feeds and supplements... what are they and how much per day)?

How is she watered? (How does she receive water?)

Has she always been small? Or was she sick at one point?
