feeding powerfill and 719

Post by ddwil » Sun May 05, 2019 9:26 pm

KGB, I am wanting to slow a couple down and want to feed them 1lb of 719, 1 lb of powerfill, and 1 lb of steam rolled oats for a total of 3 lbs per head per day. My questions are two fold, one how much will they gain on this diet, and two how fat will they get on this diet? Thank you

They will probably gain close to 1 lb per day. But, they will lose muscle and fat cover. A showpig that weighs 180 or so and up needs 25 grams of lysine per day. Your formula provides 17.

3 lb per day Powerfill. (Divide into 2 equal feedings per day)

Simple math:
1.2% lysine in 719
453.6 grams in 1 lb

453.6 X 0.012 = 5.44
