Hi, I wanted to find out what to feed our pig once he is off hold at fair. I don't want him to get diarrhea. Tight now we are feeding your recommended: powefilll 2.5 lbs, Heavy Weight 8 oz and Depth Charge 8 oz. We divide this into 2 meals. We weigh in to fair on Wednesday, the 11th. Thank you for your help.
You can feed more regular Showpig feed at the fair. The pig needs to be full at show time. The thing to do is NOT feed too much too soon. After weigh in give the pig a drink of water and about 3/4 lb of feed. Feed and water about every 2 hours. If you bring the pig back up on feed and water slowly, it shouldn’t get diarrhea.
