Barrow off feed ???

Post by 934 Farms » Wed Jul 10, 2019 10:58 am

I have a Barrow that was eating and gaining really well and then last week hey stopped eating. All other pigs with him are doing great. He is right at 220lbs and the only thing I can think is that maybe some weeds he got into gave him a stomach ache. He had a slight fever for one day and Lathargic but now really seems pretty good just not eating well. He did get one shot of Baytril and a little probiotic. Any thought our what I should do to get him pounding down the feed again?

In terms of products we have always used Vita Charge liquid boost or the Vita Charge paste with really good results.

Also, we usually have to short feed a few feedings to get them back on it. This all assumes there is nothing going on health wise.
